Amanda Tapping: Babe of the Week #15 (April 2013)


Amanda Tapping
("Supernatural," "Sanctuary," "Stargate SG-1")
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Amanda Tapping was born in Rochford, Essex, and then lived in South Benfleet, Essex for a year when her family relocated to Ontario, Canada. While attending North Toronto High, she won both the Dramatic Arts Award and Environmental Science Award. Tapping went on to study drama at the University of Windsor School of Dramatic Arts in Windsor, Ontario. After graduation, she spent four more years studying theatre and appearing in several stage productions, including Children of a Lesser God, Lion in Winter and Steel Magnolias. She originally vowed never to do television, but the income from doing TV commercials helped with the finance of Random Acts, an improvisational comedy troupe that she formed in the early 90s in Toronto with Katherine Jackson and Anne Marie Kerr. The troupe performed sketch comedies at venues in Toronto and the surrounding area, including The New Ideas Festival and the Tarragon Spring Arts Fair and finally stopped making appearances when the women's lives took them in different directions.
Supernatural: Twenty-seven years ago, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of AmericaÖ and he taught them how to kill it. Season Eight begins with Deanís seemingly impossible escape from Purgatory, though Castiel (Misha Collins) is nowhere to be found. However, Dean isnít alone. Heís returned with a mysterious comrade-in-arms whose reason for escape is perhaps more than Dean bargained for. Meanwhile, Sam finds himself reconciling the life he discovered while Dean was gone with Deanís sudden reappearance. As the boys struggle with their unexpected reunion, they make a shocking discovery that could lead them on a deeply personal mission to settle old scores. If only they could agree -- is this a "family business" or isnít it?

A very attractive woman who plays characters who are more intelligent and powerful than she is attractive.

However she does look great when she brings out her wings on Supernatural these days.

It's the best argument I've ever seen against flag burning.

Thumbs Up. I don't even need to look at the pictures.

But I will anyway.

I miss Sanctuary.

Huh, I did not know she was born in the UK. Didn't help her ability to mimic an English accent at any rate.

I will say that both SG1 and Sanctuary are guilty pleasures for me.

I liked her better (as in, she was hotter) in Sanctuary than Stargate, she looks great older.

She sort of faded away after the stargate franchise ended(along with most of the cast)

I never saw Sanctuary. I was surprised to see her in "Supernatural" but remembered it's filmed in Vancouver.

She's probably more on Canadian TV shows now.

I didn't like her wooden acting and boring character in SG1. She wasn't as bad as the scientist guy, he made me rage for various reasons.
I watched some episodes of Sanctuary, somehow I liked her better there but I didn't like that show either.

So uhh... I'm voting thumbs down based on what I've seen of her as an actress. Mostly because I got tired of her saying "With all due respect, sir...". Not that it's her fault but i'm feeling evil today. I don't really care about her looks. She's pretty, specially with dark hair.

I don't see Chris Judge or Richard Dean Anderson anymore, but Tapping and Shanks seem to be quite busy.
