    Sam Helen Magnus/Amanda Tapping Thunk, Discussion and Appreciation

    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!!

    Hi Sally and thanks for starting this thread
    I really do think Amanda is going to create another very UNFORGETABLE character with Helen. I love the whole idea of her having a child with Jack the ripper, the back story to that alone is going to be breathtaking and then you have all the rest of the story, wonderfull, wonderfull idea that i hope does really well through the internet and after that i hope it will be on TV at some point because it deserves to have every outlet it can!

    it seems that every new thing i hear about helen is just mind boggling and awesome. she's 157 years old, was engaged to jack the ripper, had a kid by him (who looks rather young for being over 100 ), and spends time with wherewolves and vampires and such. sounds like your average normal woman to me.

    That pic is great. I am looking forward to seeing Sanctuary, all the details so far sound good. Amanda's character sounds realy interesting, and I'll bet she does a great job, and the new hair colour looks great.

    Happy Valentines Day!!

    I wonder if there will be any Ship in Sanctuary? especially for "Helen" I'd love to see how Amanda would play an "out in the open ship" maybe a Ship set in Victorian times..

    Count me in with the can't-wait-for-this-show-to-start crowd. I just watched the teaser on the Sanctuary website. That was Amanda with blonde hair holding a gun, right? It looks like she is in Victorian garb.

    I hadn't seen that pic of Amanda as Helen with the dark hair and the gun until I saw this thread. WOW!

    I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS SHOW TO START!!!

    I'd love to at least check out Sanctuary. And I will - when it starts. I just checked out Flash 8. It's $399 USD. Nope. Not in the budget. It would scrap AT3.

    So, when it starts I'll do the ttrial. Then leave it alone.

    But I hope ya'll enjoy it.

    suse

    ETA: I feel like an idiot (and look like one too. ) I ithnk I figured it out.

    YAY! Sancuary, here I come!

    It's gonna be a lot of fun, to see Amanda portray someone else than Sam Carter. I'm really looking forward to 'Sanctuary' + I love her hair

    i can't wait to find out why she's holding that gun on someone, and WHO.

    things i'm excited about finding out about helen:

    1 - did she know jack was jack the ripper when she was engaged to him?

    2 - what or whoever helped her achieve long age, why did it effect her daughter too?

    3 - is helen a normal human, or did something happen to her to make her like one of the santuary ppl?

    4 - 'can' helen die?

    5 - what makes helen tell her daughter the truth about her heritage? (i'm thinking she has too, from what amanda said in her recent 'urban rush' appearance)

    (list will continue when i think of more. 'lost' just started )
