King Uther returns! This was rumored months ago when it was believed Merlin‘s Anthony Stewart Head was on the set of Warehouse 13, and fueled by a picture from star Eddie McClintock having dinner with him, fellow star Saul Rubinek, and Head’s fellow Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum James Marsters, but it’s been confirmed – Head will appear in the final three episodes of Season “4.5”, reportedly as a villain named Paracelsus.
Actor Robin Sachs, who has played many different roles across the board, often in prosthetic makeup, passed away last week at the age of 61.
Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer might recognize his face as that of Ethan Rayne, but he did a lot of voice work (most recently in the game Mass Effect 3) and acted frequently in prosthetic makeup, including the role of Sarris in the Tim Allen comedy Galaxy Quest, four different roles in Babylon 5 (two Narn and new Minbari), and General Valen in (Star Trek: Voyager).
Just got the following press release:
Updated: Just added: John Scalzi, creative consultant on Stargate Universe and science fiction author, who won the 2005 Hugo Award for Old Man’s War.
