==Early life ==

McGillion was born in PaisleyScotland. His family moved to Canada when he was only 2. When Paul was 11 the family moved back to Scotland for three years while his father worked on the Shetland oil rigs. He is the sixth of seven children.[citation needed]

==Acting career ==

He taught scene study at the Vancouver Film School in 1998 and 1999. In 2004, McGillion took a role on the science fiction seriesStargate Atlantis as the Scottish medical doctorCarson Beckett. He was initially cast as a recurring guest, but his character appeared so frequently in the show's first season that he was promoted to main character for seasons two and three, and reverts to a recurring character for seasons 4 and 5 where he appears as the clone of the now-deceased Beckett. McGillion also played the part of youngErnest Littlefield in Stargate SG-1's first season episode "The Torment of Tantalus", the first Tau'ri to have passed through the Stargateafter its burial.

He expressed great interest in auditioning for the role of Montgomery Scott in the eleventh Star Trek film. “I grew up watching Star Trekand Scotty was my favourite character. It would be a great honour to follow in James Doohan’s footsteps," he said. McGillion also had the endorsement of Chris Doohan, the son of original Scotty actor James Doohan, to play the role of Scotty in the film.[1][2] Though the part ultimately went to Simon Pegg, McGillion still appeared in the film in a different role.[3]

He appeared in Season 7 of 24 as Dr. Levinson, a doctor who tried to extract a dangerous pathogen from Jack Bauer's bloodstream after all the canisters containing pathogen had either been destroyed or secured by FBI, but died when Bauer was being moved to another location and Bauer broke free, killing Levinson and his orderlies.
