Christian Camargo, who on Dexter played Brian Moser aka Dex’s brother aka the Ice Truck Killer, is joining Haven Season 4 in the recurring role of Duke’s estranged half-sibling Wade, Syfy announced on Thursday.
Described as “charming, driven, and slightly devious,” Wade is a successful businessman seemingly at the top of his game by in reality haunted by a dark and lethal family secret.
In other Season 4 news, the Syfy series has cast Hellcats alum Emma Lahana as Jennifer Mason, a slightly off-kilter young lady who hears strange voices in her head — voices that could produce valuable clues about Audrey Parker’s whereabouts. As Jennifer digs into her own personal history, it is revealed she may have a bigger role to play in the town’s strange happenings.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported on the two castings.
Haven returns with new episodes on Friday, Sept. 13.
Syfy has rescheduled the Haven episode that was pulled from its line-up last Friday in the immediate wake of the Newtown, Conn. elementary school shooting, as well as the Season 3 finale that was to air this week.
A statement issued by the cabler reads: “Last Friday’s episode of Haven contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school setting and in light of the recent tragedy, we have decided to reschedule it along with the series’ Season 3 finale, originally slated to air [Dec. 21].
“The final two episodes of Season 3 will now air back-to-back on Thursday, Jan. 17, from 8 to 10pm EST, to maintain the integrity of the series’ serialized nature.”
An episode of Syfy’s Haven dealing with fictitious violence at a high school scheduled to air tonight has been pulled from the schedule in the wake of this morning’s shocking mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn. elementary school.
“In light of today’s tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it,” the network said in a statement. “At this time, no decision has been made as to when the episode will air.”
Laura Vandervoort, who was to kick off a two-episode arc tonight as James Cogan’s vengeful wife, commends Syfy’s call, which she played a role in making. “There’s a fine line between our art of evoking emotions in others, portraying tainted, troubled and broken characters, and reality,” the Smallville alum tells TVLine. “I feel immense pain and sympathy for the families and children [in Newtown] and couldn’t bear the thought of the images in tonight’s episode upsetting people.”
And as a character seen in the episode walking a high school’s halls carrying a gun, “I couldn’t stomach it,” she shares. “I’m proud of Haven and Syfy for making the decision they did.”
The Friday morning shooting in Newtown left more than 27 people — including 20 young Sandy Hook Elementary School students — dead.
ABC, CBS and NBC are set to air special editions of their evening news programs Friday devoted to the tragedy.
