SANCTUARY - READING EAGLE: Amanda Tapping merges Syfy stardom with charity program

By Ian Spelling
New York Times Syndicate

"Sanctuary" is at once an epic disaster and a huge success story.

No one can attest to that more than Amanda Tapping, who stars on, co-executive produces and occasionally directs the show, which kicked off in 2007 as an eight-episode Web series and will close its third season as a Syfy Channel hit, with a fourth season currently in production...


... Tapping is on the telephone to discuss the final two episodes of Season 3, "Into the Blue" and "Out of the Black," which will air on June 10 and June 17, respectively.

"Once again 'Sanctuary' paints itself into what seems to be an impossible corner to get out of," Tapping said, laughing softly. "When we got the pickup for Season 4, we were like, 'Aha, how are we going to get out of this one?' At the end of Season 2, a tidal wave was heading toward Earth, and, at the end of Season 3, we have no idea where we are or what will happen.

"Our story line about Hollow Earth plays very big.

"There's a huge insurgence that happens, which the Sanctuary team has to deal with. The government has become more involved than we've ever wanted them to be, and Magnus finds herself in the most ridiculous and unexpected place.

"So the start of our fourth season has all been about, 'How do we quell this uprising, and how do we get Magnus back?' " Tapping said. "I think the only way you can creatively continue is to scare the crap out of yourself and try to do something that everyone says is impossible. That's how we've always rolled."

A unique byproduct of "Sanctuary" is something called Sanctuary for Kids. Spearheaded by Tapping, it's a not-for-profit organization that raises funds for children in crisis throughout the world. Since 2009 the sale of "Sanctuary" scripts, autographs, set visits, Skype chats and such has raised more than $250,000 for Sanctuary for Kids.

"I'm super-proud of this initiative," the actress said.
