Warehouse 13 and Later Work

In 2009, Joanne got one of her most notable roles in the show “Warehouse 13”, in which she played Myka Bering. The SyFy show borrowed concepts from various other popular franchises, such as “Friday the 13th”, “The X-Files”, “Indiana Jones”, and “Moonlighting”, and follows Myka Bering and Pete Lattimer who are assigned to the secretive Warehouse 13 for supernatural artifacts. It is a sister show to “Eureka” and cast members of both shows have crossed over as guests. She stayed with “Warehouse 13” for its entire run from 2009 to 2014, but also took other parts during this time.

One of her more notable film roles was the psychological horror film “Don’t Blink”, which stars her alongside Mena Suvari. She also had guest roles in “CSI: Miami”, “The Deep End”, “Hostages”, and “No Ordinary Family”. After the end of “Warehouse 13”, she scored a recurring role in the series “Zoo” in 2016, which is based on the novel of the same name by James Patterson. A few of her latest projects include the film “Closet Monster”, a drama film that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and she also had a part in the television miniseries “The Disappearance”.
