'Bionic Woman' Lindsay Wagner to Guest on 'Warehouse 13'

SyFy's hit 'Warehouse 13' centers on a Mulder-and-Scully-like pair of agents who de-mothball ancient and mysterious objects stored in the title building. Maybe one of those objects was an old 'Bionic Woman' videocassette.

That could be the explanation for a secretive cameo by '70s sci-fi icon Lindsay Wagner on an upcoming episode of 'Warehouse 13's' second season. The 'Bionic Woman' star, now in semi-retirement from acting, is de-mothballing her own career for an upcoming guest appearance on the show, which she's shooting at the end of this month in Toronto.

Wagner, who won an Emmy for playing robotically-enhanced heroine Jaime Sommers on the 1976-78 series, confirmed the upcoming guest spot in a tweet. "I'm excited to be making a special cameo appearance on the Sci-Fi channel series Warehouse 13 this Summer," she posted on her Twitter feed last week. "Filming starts the end of April." (Someone at 'Warehouse 13' needs to tell Wagner that the channel changed its name to SyFy last year.)

Wagner confirmed her appearance in a chat with Los Angeles' KABC-TV, which caught up with her at the Comic-Con in Anaheim, California, over the weekend. While the 60-year-old has largely retired from acting and now spends most of her time writing books and running retreats promoting holistic health practices, she still appears frequently at fan conventions. As she told KABC's On the Red Carpet site, she was an educator even when she was playing a bionic schoolteacher, and she's gratified now that adults tell her they picked up life lessons from 'Bionic Woman' when they were kids.

Season 2 of 'Warehouse 13' premieres on July 6. The date of Wagner's guest appearance remains under wraps, as does the nature of her character. But we won't be surprised if it involves a lot of slow-motion running and jumping.
