That Eureka moment

Syfy’s series add a host of guest stars for the summer.

Eureka, or, A Town Called Eureka as it’s known in the United Kingdom, has attracted its fair share of name guest appearances over the years. From Matt ‘Max Headroom’ Frewer, Michael Shanks and Lexa Doig through to Jaime Ray Newman and Frances Fisher, the show lives and breathes on its special actors.

Indeed, Syfy as a whole specialises in its guest star casting, with a number of other high-profile announcements in recent weeks for Warehouse 13 as well.
