Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica fame will make a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of the CBS drama Criminal Minds. She is barely recognizable in this picture posted earlier this week by CM SetReport. If she hadn’t posted this the same day on her twitter account I might not have believed it was her:
"Gonna be sporting a different look for #CriminalMinds Fun to change things up."
It certainly is a different look. There aren’t too many details around the web as to what character she’ll be playing in the season 7 finale. According to TV Line, she did say she would be playing a bad character when they caught up with her at the Genesis Awards on March 24. After reading CBS’ official summary of the finale which reads, “When a federal bank is under attack, the BAU is called to negotiate a hostage situation. As events unfold in real-time, tensions rise as one of the team becomes a hostage.” Wow - I wonder if she’ll be a hostage or the one taking hostages? I know I wouldn’t mind being her captive. The finale is set to air May 16.
Also seen on set: Sebastian Roché, Jayne Atkinson, Nicholas Brendon, Bellamy Young, Josh Stewart, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cade Owens, Shemar Moore, and Paget Brewster
