I was lucky enough to attend this event, and what follows is my experience of the con events.
As of 2004, Amanda lives with her husband, Alan Kovacs, in Vancouver, British Columbia (wedding date - September 23, 1994).
She has one daughter, Olivia B., born on March 22, 2005.
I've purposely omitted the names of other fans to preserve their anonymity, but rest assured I'll remember all of them!
Creation held the Stargate Sunday brunch at lovely Delmonico's Seafood Restaurant, across from the convention center.
They stopped at each and every table and spent a couple of minutes chatting, then let everyone get group photos.
They bravely tried to ignore those of us taking pictures from a distance and in general watching their every move, and were very warm and friendly to everyone.
Instead of returning for Atlantis' 5th season, Amanda chose to focus her attention on the development of a new series for the Sci Fi Channel, Sanctuary, for which she serves as both star and Executive Producer.
However, when asked if she would continue to star in Stargate related projects, she said, "I will be there for as long as they want me to".
She attended North Toronto Collegiate Institute where she excelled in environmental science and drama.
