Regarding LOST GIRL, it should be noted that both "Hale" (black) and "Trick" (Little Person) are very regular as "semiregulars" go. They're both in almost every episode, often quite prominently. In fact, I was surprised to hear that "Trick" is considered a semiregular character; he strikes me as a fairly major character.
Yeah, a lot of Canadian-made shows seem to bill effectively regular cast members as if they were guest stars, I guess because they get paid less or are contracted differently. But you're right -- those two are regulars in every way that matters. Trick's been in every episode, and Hale in all but a few.
