Amanda Tapping: Nerdage’s #10 actress with geek appeal
Amanda Tapping is Nerdage’s #11 actress with geek appeal. She played Samantha Carter in “Stargate SG1″ and “Stargate Atlantis.” She now stars in and executive produces “Sanctuary.” The fourth season of “Sanctuary,” in which she plays Dr. Helen Magnus, is in production now.
Here’s how Syfy describes the series: Sanctuary follows brilliant scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and her team, who use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting-edge science to find and aid a clandestine population of beings that the world refuses to believe exists. The series also stars Robin Dunne as forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as the quick-witted Kate Freelander, Ryan Robbins as tech wiz Henry Foss and Christopher Heyerdahl as the sinister John Druitt.
The first and second seasons are available on DVD and Blu-ray.
Amanda Tapping’s related charity, Sanctuary for Kids, has raised more than $200,000 to improve the lives of children around the world who need protection and are in crisis. Amanda Tapping’s official website is found at www.amandatapping.com, and you can also follow her on twitter.
