Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel
Person of Interest fans were stunned in November when the CBS drama killed off original cast member Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter. But no one took it harder than her castmates.
"I really miss working with Taraji," Kevin Chapman, who plays Carter's partner Detective Lionel Fusco, tells TVGuide.com. "She was very gracious, and we just really connected. We had a lot of fun. We'd go to basketball games together and dinners. I really miss having her around."

Though Chapman misses his former scene partner, he's well aware of how much meaty material Carter's death has given him to play....
"Just when you think the writers can't raise the stakes, they threaten to destroy the entire world!" says Eddie McClintock with a laugh. He's talking about Syfy hit Warehouse 13's midseason premiere (Monday, 10/9c), which picks up with his artifact-hunting agent Pete and bestie-slash-partner Myka (Joanne Kelly) in a mad dash to find a cure for the sweating-sickness epidemic unleashed in October's cliffhanger.
Helping their cause is Buffy the Vampire Slayer veteran James Marsters, who guest stars as a professor with a specific — and very old — skill set that may help stop the global pandemic. While that arc sparks the action-adventure fun W13 is known for, the hour also takes a more serious turn as the team continues to deal with the fact that a possessed Artie (Saul Rubinek) has killed one of their own. "We have to honor the demise of Leena [Genelle Williams]," McClintock says, while promising that Season 4.5 won't be all death and destruction. "It's still Warehouse 13. We're gonna paint with all the same colors and just add a couple of different tones."

Even with the clock ticking on a looming medical apocalypse, a worldwide pandemic of fatal "English Sweating Sickness" initiated by the unleashing of a magical Black Orchid thingamabob, Syfy's quirky fan fave Warehouse 13 manages to find time to crack wise about the end of the world.
"It's always 'ultimately death,'" Agent Pete (Eddie McClintock) bemoans when clued in about just how nasty the disease is that has infected the entire team and much of the rest of the planet. "Artifacts never release a plague of tickles or an epidemic of kittens." A plague of tickles: not a bad way to describe this tongue-in-cheek supernatural lark which pulls out all the guest-star stops in an eventful episode (Monday, 10/9c) by Drew Z. Greenberg that kicks off the second half of Season 4 with Evil Artie's (Saul Rubinek) life and soul also in jeopardy.
They went toe-to-toe in a famous episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation — now Brent Spiner and Saul Rubinek are set to battle it out on Warehouse 13! TV Guide Magazine has learned that....
Syfy's Warehouse 13 returned for its third season last night with the proverbial bang, plus a seismic shock or two. The good news: Leading lady Joanne Kelly is still with us as Myka Bering, even though the tough, vulnerable, funny and deliciously dishy superagent quit her job in the Season 2 finale after her trust in H.G. Wells (Jaime Murray) almost led the end of the world. Now for the bad news (though it's actually good news!): The evil H.G. is already back — albeit in holographic form — cryptically claiming she's being held captive somewhere and urging Myka to return to her job at the Warehouse. TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with Kelly to get the lowdown on Myka's return, her future with H.G. and her crazy-good chemistry with this hot new Steve guy.
Tia Carrere will return to Warehouse 13 for Season 2, Syfy announced on Thursday.
The 43-year-old actress — who co-starred in the Wayne's World movies in the early '90s — will reprise her role as...
"In this job, there's no such thing as no such thing."
That clever quip gives us summer Syfy in a nutshell. As spoken by Warehouse 13's glib Secret Service hero Pete Lattimer (the genial Eddie McClintock) to his foxy partner Mika Bering (Joanne Kelly) while both are plastered to a Victorian ceiling by some anti-gravity device or other, we are served the fantastic with a side order of whimsy, with very little ever taken seriously...
