LAURA INNES (ER, THE EVENT) TO GUEST-STAR ON SEPTEMBER 17 EPISODE OF SYFY'S HIT SERIES "WAREHOUSE 13"
NEW YORK - July 31, 2012 - Laura Innes, an Emmy-nominee for both acting (ER) and directing (The West Wing), will guest star on Syfy's hit series Warehouse 13.
In the Monday, September 17 episode at 9PM (ET/PT), Innes will play Emma Jinks, the mother of Agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore), who has been estranged from her son for two years. Steve is forced to seek out his mother during an artifact-related crisis, but in order to get to the bottom of his case, he and Emma must first make peace.
Says Warehouse 13 executive producer Jack Kenny: "The wonderfully talented Innes gives a heartrending performance as a woman who is desperately trying to mend her relationship with the only child she has left, after her family was torn apart by tragedy."
Innes, who also recently starred on NBC's The Event and Awake, joins season four guest stars Brent Spiner, Sam Huntington, Lindsay Wagner, Kate Mulgrew, Rene Aberjonois and Jeri Ryan, among others.
Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse's caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the Warehouse itself.
