James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter
Charisma Carpenter fell under the Supernatural casting department's spell when they asked her to play a witch, but the real magic happened once she found out who would play her on-screen husband.
"I got a call from my manager saying that there was interest from Supernatural inviting me to do an episode," Carpenter tells TVGuide.com. "I thought that was a great idea and went forward with it. And then I found out after that James [Marsters] was going to be part of it too, and then it just got super tasty."
Shane West, Helena Mattsson
Cassandra is blonde, beautiful... and on Nikita fans' most-hated list.
In Friday's episode, "Looking Glass" (8/7c, The CW), Michael (Shane West) looks up Cassandra (Helena Mattsson), a woman he had "romanced" as part of a mission for Division back in the day. Wait, what does he want with her now that he's with Nikita (Maggie Q)?
Relative newcomer Taylor Wily has become a familiar face on Hawaii Five-0, even if that face has been superimposed on the body of a shrimp.
The former sumo wrestler and Hawaii native plays Kamekona, an island local who sometimes acts as an informant for Five-0 when he's not pursuing his own entrepreneurial endeavors. His latest venture is running a shrimp truck, which is adorned with graphics of disconcerting Kamekona-shrimp hybrids. Using his own image has been one of Kamekona's marketing ploys since the beginning of the series when he printed his face on t-shirts to advertise his shave ice business.
Daniel Dae Kim, Reiko Aylesworth
Hawaii Five-0 almost had the perfect scenario for a romantic date: a seaside locale, a shared meal, an intimate vibe ... oh, and about two dozen tourists trying to take pictures of the interlude.
On a balmy August day at the Duke Kahanamoku lagoon at Waikiki's Hilton Hawaiian Village, Daniel Dae Kim and Reiko Aylesworth were filming a date between Chin Ho Kelly and ex-fiancee Malia for Monday's episode, "Ma'em'e" (10/9c, CBS). TVGuide.com was on the set to check out Kamekona's shrimp truck and find out what's going on with cousins Chin Ho and Kono (Grace Park).
Hawaii Five-0: Could the team lose Kono?
Last season, Chin Ho kept busy working with Five-0 and clearing his own name of scandal before rejoining the HPD. He has more than just work on his mind now, though. "You're witnessing one...
Silas Weir Mitchell
Perpetrators of violent crimes have often been called monsters, but on NBC's new crime procedural Grimm, which premieres Friday, Oct. 28 at 9/8c, the criminals are monsters -- both literally and literarily.
It turns out that Grimm's Fairy Tales isn't a work of fiction, but an account of supernatural creatures that the Grimm family has destroyed throughout history to keep humanity safe. Portland cop Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) has just discovered he's the last of that line of hunters, who have a gift of spotting the true, monstrous nature underneath the creature's magically mundane facade.
Enlightened, Laura Dern
HBO has a way of attracting big-time film stars to the small screen. With the Monday night premiere of Enlightened, the network's done it again with Laura Dern, who plays an executive who has had a "nervous breakthrough." We want to know what you thought of this show — and what you think of every new series this season.
For Pan Am star Christina Ricci, wearing the airline's iconic '60s flight attendant uniforms not only make her look the part, but also feel the part. And it all begins with squeezing into the historically accurate underwear.
"We have these undergarments that we wear, a girdle and a longline bra," Ricci told reporters in September. "The girdle keeps you from being able to do anything boyish like run or jump or take any large flights of stairs. The longline is a bra attached to a mini-corset so it basically makes you stand up really, really straight. ... You have to walk like a lady at all times, so immediately you're just put into this mindset of 'I'm a lady. I sit a certain way. I walk a certain way.'"
Eating brains was only part of the pleasure for Jewel Staite when she guest-starred on Friday's episode of The CW's Supernatural (9/8c).
"I saw that Jensen [Ackles] was directing," Staite tells TVGuide.com. "He's an old friend of mine, so I thought, 'Ooooh, fun! That would be great.' Luckily it all worked out. When you get on a show where one of the actors is directing, it can go either way. Sometimes they can stress out if they have too much on their plate, but he was so calm and so cool and so collected. He just really impressed me. We had some days we didn't even go the full 12 hours of shooting. We were let out early because he knew exactly what he wanted and when he got it, he moved on."
Lyndsy Fonseca, Nikita
In Season 2 of Nikita, Alex is working alongside Division — but that doesn't mean that she and Nikita will remain adversaries.
Even if Nikita did break her arm and shoot her in the leg. Bygones! "I think there was a lot of worry this season about 'Oh my God, Alex is turning evil, Alex is on the bad side,' and it's really not that at all," Lyndsy Fonseca tells TVGuide.com. "It's kind of the unfortunate situation they're in right now. There's still a lot of love, there's still a lot of hate. There are moments in the next few episodes where Nikita tries to help Alex, and there's moments where Alex warns Nikita about things."
