Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Sanctuary fan favourite Amanda Tapping has joined the cast of Supernatural Season 8 in a recurring role, according to TVLine.

The ‘Queen of Sci-Fi’ will will play Naomi, a character showrunner Jeremy Carver describes as “cool and mysterious, part of a new group of angels we’ve never seen before.”

The original casting breakdown for Naomi called her a “no-nonsense bureaucrat” a la Matt Damon in The Good Shepherd. “She wears a business suit and has her hair pulled back,” read the notice. “However, Naomi is less together than she appears to be. Her efficient manner belies a deeper emotionality.”

Amanda Tapping’s first appearance will be Season 8, Episode 7 – ‘A Little Slice Of Kevin’.

Meanwhile, Supernatural Season 7 is available to own from 5 November 2012, pre-order it on DVD for £28 or on Blu-ray for £36 from Amazon.co.uk.
