Polly Walker, who has played one of Syfy’s most complex villains, is returning to the cable channel in April when “Warehouse 13” comes back to finish its fourth season.
Walker, who many fans will recognize as headmaster and terrorist Clarice Willow in the “Battlestar Galactica” spinoff “Caprica,” will play Charlotte Dupres, a nemesis for the Warehouse 13 team who “compounds mystery with intrigue and whose innumerable layers and secrets will unfold over the course” of the season, according to a Syfy news release.
Walker has signed on for five episodes, meaning she will appear in half of the final 10 episodes of the fourth season for Syfy’s top-rated scripted show.
Besides her one-season stint on “Caprica,” Walker has also made some strong appearances in films including 2010’s “Clash of the Titans” as Cassiopeia as well as the box office dud “John Carter” as Sarkoja. Walker has also been making some television appearances as well, including “Sanctuary,” “Psych” and “The Mentalist.” She also appeared in the British drama “Prisoners Wives,” which premiered at the beginning of the year.
Walker has also appeared in the series “Rome” and the television miniseries “State of Play.”
Filming is already under way for the rest of the fourth season in Toronto in the series that stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Allison Scagliotti and Aaron Ashmore.
Walker joins a long list of A-list genre guest stars on the show, including “Star Trek: The Next Generation’s” Brent Spiner in the first half of the season, as well as Jeri Ryan, Jaime Murray, Kate Mulgrew and Anthony Michael Hall.
“Warehouse 13” returns in April, the same time Syfy debuts its most expensive series ever, “Defiance.”
