WILL ANTHONY HEAD MAKE WAREHOUSE 13 HIS OWN?
THREE-EPISODE GUEST STAR ARC BEGINS
MONDAY, JUNE 24 AT 10PM ON SYFY
NEW YORK – June 17, 2013 – Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin) turns the tables on the Warehouse team with his deadly mastery of artifacts – leading to a shattering confrontation – when he guest stars as the Machiavellian alchemist Paracelsus on Syfy’s popular series Warehouse 13.
Head’s three-episode story arc begins Monday, June 24 at 10PM (ET/PT), culminating in the Season 4.5 finale on July 8.
In the episode, “Lost and Found,” Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve (Aaron Ashmore) get an intruder alert, which leads them to the shocking reveal that Paracelsus (Anthony Head) is alive and in the Warehouse. Meanwhile, Pete (Eddie McClintock), Myka (Joanne Kelly) and Artie (Saul Rubinek) hunt down artifacts stolen by pirates centuries ago. To find the cache, they team up with the mysterious Charlotte Dupres (Polly Walker) whose agenda puts all their lives in danger.
Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota, which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him control the Warehouse itself.
