Stargate and Sanctuary veteran Amanda Tapping is adding another genre favorite to her resume as “Queen of Sci-Fi.” She’ll appear in a major recurring role in the eighth season of Supernatural, according to TV Line.
Tapping will play Naomi, described by showrunner Jeremy Carver as “cool and mysterious, part of a new group of angels we’ve never seen before.” Naomi’s demeanor is efficient and put-together, but this only hides a lot more going on under the surface.
She’ll make her first appearance in the seventh episode of Season Eight, titled “A Little Slice of Kevin.”
The “Samantha Carter” actress recently had a directing stint helming three episodes of the upcoming fantasy series Primeval: New World, and appeared on screen in the Lifetime move Taken Back: Finding Haley, which aired in August.
Season Eight of Supernatural premieres Wednesday, October 3 at 9/8c on The CW in the United States. Look for Amanda’s first appearance sometime in November.
