During Drinktect 2013, HEUFT announced that Amanda is the new Chief Navigator for the InLine IXS!
The highlight was Amanda Tapping a star of the tech-savvy science fiction scene: she is Colonel Dr Samantha Carter an astrophysicist specialising in particle research in the TV series Stargate. And at HEUFT she is the new Chief Navigator who shows the user step by step what has to be done when and where in order to reliably detect even the smallest foreign objects in empty and full containers as well as numerous other quality defects in drinks packaging and to increase the efficiency of complete filling lines.
For this reason HEUFT integrated Amanda’s avatar in the intuitively understandable user guidance of the new HEUFT SPECTRUM II series and invited the well-known actress, director and producer to drinktec 2013 in Munich. Consequently the visitors to the exhibition could experience her personally and not just virtually.
You can read more about the InLine IXS and Amanda’s involvement here!
I have also added 4 images from DrinkTec 2013 to the gallery.
Rogue Events, the powerhouse behind huge conventions like the recent Teen Wolf’s based con, Wolfs Bane, is presenting another Supernatural based convention called Asylum 12 and it’s set for May 16-18, 2014.
Amanda was recently confirmed as a guest! She’ll be joined by Supernatural co-stars Misha Collins and Mark Sheppard as well as other Supernatural fan favorites!
We are pleased to announce our next guest for ASYLUM 12 is Amanda Tapping. Currently plays Naomi on the TV series. Probably best known for portraying Samantha Carter in the Canadian-American military science fiction television series Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis and as Helen Magnus in the Syfy Channel series Sanctuary
Tickets are now on sale here. Photo ops and panels will be announced at a later date.
Three episodes remain in Season 8 of “Supernatural,” and as we approach the finale, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) will meet Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), face the final trial and, presumably, be caught in a showdown with Crowley (Mark Sheppard), Naomi (Amanda Tapping), or both. All in a day’s work for our long-suffering Winchesters.
To preview the last three episodes, The Huffington Post spoke with showrunner Jeremy Carver about the last trial, Naomi’s plans, Castiel’s (Misha Collins) dilemma and how traumatic the “Supernatural” Season 8 finale will be. Check out what he had to say below.
Did his rebellion against Naomi break the last of her control over him, or is her brainwashing a lingering problem for him?
That’s a lingering thing, as is the character of Naomi herself in terms of what she’s really all about and what she’s up to. That’s something that we explore in this final run as well.
Obviously, she helped the boys out with freeing Bobby’s soul from Crowley, and made her best pitch to Dean in terms of how helpful she is, so can we expect an “enemy of my enemy is my friend” kind of situation with the Winchesters against Crowley?
You’re fishing in the right pond there. I think [Naomi's] intentions and her motivations have been intentionally opaque in terms of what she’s really after. I think folks are going to be surprised up to the last minute in terms of how really to think about Naomi and what she really wants.
Amanda appeared again alongside friends Fiona Forbes and Robin Dunne on yesterday’s livesteam episode of The Rush on ShawTV. I’ve got the segment captures in abundance so hopefully you’ll all find what you’re looking for. There’s been a lot of Amanda news these last few days and only more to come.
I’m still waiting on news from CTV about her Motive appearance as well as keeping an eye out for any photos they may release of that, a new project was announced, Supernatural’s coming to a close in a few weeks so we’ve got a lot to look forward to over the summer in terms of Amanda fun!
Also, we got some super shady and vague answers in terms of any future Sanctuary projects (mwahah) so stay tuned in case something happens with that.
Amanda Tapping boards Arctic Air with a Wealthy Barber
For her highly anticipated turn at the helm of Arctic Air, sci-fi icon Amanda Tapping was tasked with wrangling a dragon.
And not just any dragon: Tapping directed David Chilton, author of Canada’s all-time best-selling book (The Wealthy Barber) and the newest investor on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, in the penultimate episode of the second season of Arctic Air (April 10).
Chilton’s appearance on the hit CBC drama wasn’t the result of any network-dictated cross-promotion. “I asked,” said Chilton in a recent phone interview. “I love Arctic Air.”
Chilton has but one previous acting credit to his name. “I played the undertaker in Oliver! when I was in Grade 12, and I was told that it was one of the worst performances ever given,” he said. Thus, Chilton made sure he brought his A-game to Arctic Air — even though the role wasn’t too far out of his range. “I was method acting myself,” said Chilton of his cameo appearance, which is set following a Wealthy Barber seminar.
It was her time behind the camera on Arctic Air that was truly restorative for Tapping’s confidence, which, as Tapping shared with WE back in January, had been shaken after Sanctuary went off the air in early 2012. “When I finished Arctic Air, I could not have been happier,” said Tapping.
As for Chilton, if he gets his way, CBC viewers will be seeing him all over the schedule. “I want to go in and do Peter Mansbridge’s job one night,” he jokes.
Peace Fund Radio informed us on our Facebook page today that Amanda will be appearing on their show on Wednesday April 3rd.

Supernatural: 8×19 “Taxi Driver” Official Press Release
We all know Amanda was on set shooting a bunch more episodes, so far she’s confirmed back for 817, I’m assuming 818 as well and here we are at 819 so that’s possibly three in a row! Naomi is finally getting out from the scary white room and interacting with someone other than Castiel in this episode.
SAM AND DEAN FACE THE SECOND TRIAL — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) respond to a call from Kevin (guest star Osric Chau), who is terrified after hearing Crowley’s (guest star Mark Sheppard) voice in his head. After hearing Kevin’s news, Sam and Dean team up with reaper named Ajay (guest star Assaf Cohen), who helps them deal with the second trial from the Tablet. Meanwhile, Dean receives a visit from Naomi (guest star Amanda Tapping) and realizes he must find Benny (guest star Ty Olsson) and ask for a huge favor. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner (#819).
