Random Acts of Romance director Katrin Bowen and her star Amanda Tapping walked the red carpet together at the Leo Awards.

And the film was one of six nominees for Best Motion Picture. Amanda Tapping’s suit.

It’s Amanda Tapping week: Guest star on Wednesday night’s season finale of CW hit Supernatural and Thursday night’s season finale of Vancouver whydunit hit Motive. And directing the current episode of Vancouver-cop-from-the-future series hit Continuum. Are there zombies in this episode? Here is Amanda Tapping directing Victor Webster as Detective Carlos Fonnegra yesterday looking at corpse in the trunk of a car parked in the gravel lot off Arch Alley.

Is that Kiera's frenemy CSIS agent Gardiner (Nicholas Lea) under that [...]

And directing the current episode of Vancouver-cop-from-the-future series hit Continuum. Here is Vancouver’s Sci-fi Queen directing a scene this afternoon from the video village in Arch Alley east of Victory Square.

Still very much the ageless Helen Magnus of her long-running series Sanctuary.
