Tricia Helfer moves to the “Warehouse”

We knew when we saw Jane Espenson’s name attached to the new Sci-Fi SyFy network series Warehouse 13 that a lot of alums from her previous series would doubtless make appearances.

Sure enough, we’ve just learned that favorite Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica will guest star as FBI agent Bonnie Belski.

Warehouse 13, which premiers July 7 with a two-hour pilot, follows Secret Service agents Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) who are transferred to South Dakota, where a huge top-secret storage facility holds every unexplained object in the U.S. government’s possession.

Pete and Myka are assigned to investigate paranormal activity and collect new treasures for the warehouse. Saul Rubinek plays Artie, the warehouse’s caretaker.

Is it just me, or do McClintock and Kelly look like Bones stand-ins? Never mind that McClintock appeared in Bones. The similarities don’t stop with looks, as you can see in the Warehouse 13 trailer. (Yes, that’s the fabulous CCH Pounder.)


Helfer’s Bonnie initially butts heads with Pete and Myka when they interfere with one of her cases. But after a series of mysterious bank takeovers, she finds herself a bit more open to the agents’ expertise. Helfer spoke briefly to IGN about her role:


Other BSG alums already are on-deck for Warehouse 13, including Michael Hogan and Mark Sheppard. We’ll keep you posted as the series premier gets closer.
