Back Behind the Camera

Amanda Tapping is directing at least one more episode of Motherland: Fort Salem. The series about witches in modern America got renewed for a second season in May 2020, just one day after its premiere. Amanda directed the third episode of the first season, A Biddy’s Life.


While waiting for the second season of Motherland, fans can look forward to other episodes directed by Amanda for the series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Supernatural. The remaining episodes of Supernatural’s last season will start airing in October on The CW, we don’t however know yet, when the episode (episodes?) Amanda directed will air. As for Sabrina, there is no news about air dates yet.

Back to the First Stage Role

While Amanda Tapping is primarily known for her roles in the series Stargate and Sanctuary, as well as her directing work since, most fans know that she started in theatre. Her first theatre play, after some school plays, was at The Village Playhouse, a community theatre in Toronto, where she played the role of Alais Capet in The Lion in Winter. Her father took her to the audition, thinking that she wouldn’t get the part, realize how harsh the industry is, and hence choose not to pursue acting. Amanda, however, got the part, and this was a definitive moment for her decision to become an actor. The Village Playhouse has now shared a lovely photo of her from that play.
