Kate Mulgrew, Star Trek: Voyager’s Captain Janeway, will be appearing in Syfy’s Warehouse 13 in a four-episode arc this fall.
Mulgrew will portray Jane, a character who will have a “profound impact on the Warehouse.”
“She is a Regent, a very important Regent,” said series creator Jack Kenny. “Her first episode (The 40th Floor), will make her relationship to the Warehouse and everyone in it vital. And for the next three episodes that Kate is in (9/12’s Shadows, 9/26’s Emily Lake and the 10/3 season ender titled Stand), we’ll learn a lot more about how the Regents are chosen, how they affect the Warehouse, and in particular how Jane will have a very strong impact on Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly).”
Mulgrew spoke about what attracted her to playing Jane. “She has mystical and magical powers beyond all articulation. I play an important part regarding the future of the Warehouse, and also its history. You will increasingly understand her mysterious value to the warehouse and everybody in it.”
The four-episode arc may not be Mulgrew’s only appearance on Warehouse 13. “Jack [Kenny] and I spoke about [the next season] over dinner the other night. I’d very much like to go back and I hope we can do that.”
Warehouse 13 airs Mondays on Syfy at 9 PM.
