Genelle Williams in “Warehouse 13” (2009)
Born in Toronto, Williams knew she wanted to be an actress at an early age and studied acting under Canadian actor Dean Armstrong who played Blake Wyzecki in Showtime’s Queer as Folk.
In 2003, she played Kim Carlisle in Radio Free Rosco, the role that made her famous in Canada. Williams also played Carla in three episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation (2005-2007). It was in 2004, when the two shows began airing in the U.S., that her fame blossomed in the States.
Since then she’s had a small role in another Canadian show, Bitten, about a clan of werewolves, and has become most well known as Leena (a bed & breakfast owner with psychic powers) in the Syfy channel’s Warehouse 13 from 2009 to 2012. Most recently, she appeared in Lifetime’s 2014 sci fi/dystopic future show The Lottery.
