The actor behind Stargate Atlantis‘s Dr. Carson Beckett returns to Syfy Channel in this weekend’s original movie, Witchslayer Gretl! Actor Paul McGillion stars in the movie airing tonight (February 25) at 9 p.m. (8 Central) as part of a double bill of original movies.
McGillion plays the fairy tale character Hansel, who as an adult returns to the forest to avenge the death of his sister — but finds a disturbing surprise: his sister Gretl, who he believed was dead, has become the witch’s protégé.

McGillion recently appeared in the pilot episode of FOX’s new series Alcatraz, a police procedural with a sci-fi twist. He’s also set to star alongside Billy Boyd in the genre thriller A70, according to IMDb.
Witchslayer Gretyl (formerly titled Gretl: Witch Hunter) co-stars Shannen Doherty as Gretl. Sanctuary‘s Emilie Ullerup also appears as Ehren. Check out the trailer below!
