||played Vala Mal Doran [Season 9+] in Stargate SG-1
Vala Mal Doran, a former thief who was once host to a Goa'uld.
Now, she is an integral part of SG-1, with unique knowledge and invaluable "street" smarts of the galaxy that prove useful as she tries to earn respect, and prove she has changed, to SG-1 and Stargate Command. This has been made all that more difficult due to her first encounter with SG-1 being the single-handed hijacking of the Prometheus, subsequently foiled by Daniel Jackson.
Despite this bad first encounter with Daniel Jackson, there has always been a subtle, mutual connection between them, which has led Daniel to defend her to the rest of the SG-1 team and to General Landry.
Despite her troubled past, she has stuck with her transformation from con artist to a well loved member of the SG-1 team.
