This thread is for the appreciation of helen magnus, and the actress that plays her, amanda tapping, from the -soon to be seen- show 'santuary'.
starting off, i'm SUPER excited!!
amanda plays helen magnus, a victorian era doctor, who because of her line of work and who she's associated with, is 157 years old. helen has a daughter named ashley, who's father is none other than jack the ripper.
helen's father put together a santuary for abnormal ppl - wherewolves, vampires, creaters, politicians (oops) - and helen, with her daughter's and co-worker's help, have taken over the duty.
as a HUGE fan of amanda tappings, i'm soooooooo excited to see her play someone so different and complicated.
just think of all the possibilities to be shown with helen. she's 157 years old, having lived through some amazing times. she was engaged to jack the ripper and had a child with him. she deals with very strange and dangerous creatures. LOADS of exciting character bits ahead!!
