Actress Liane Balaban to Star in ‘Supernatural’ as New Interest for [SPOILER]

That got your attention, right? Who is the lucky one to be getting a new love interest this fall on Supernatural? Well, it would seem that Sam Winchester (aka Jared Padalecki) will be getting a new special someone in his life.

According to a report at TV Line, actress Liane Balaban has been cast as Amelia, “a tragedy-damaged soul” that “soon reveals herself to be a brave, sweet, smart, sarcastic woman”. Sam is going to need some lovin’ now that brother Dean (Jensen Ackles) disappeared along with Dick Roman (recurring guest James Patrick Stuart) in the season finale this past May. While he is out hunting down just where in the hell (literally) Dean has been dispatched this time, he will have a little time for love; but in the world of ‘Supernatural’ just how well could that go, right?

TV viewers may recognize Balaban from her guest roles in ‘Alphas’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, ‘Numb3rs and ‘Covert Affairs’ (she was Auggie’s Russian hacker ‘friend); as well as small roles in the box office films ‘Definitely, Maybe’ and ‘Last Chance Harvey’.

‘Supernatural’ will return for its 8th season on The CW on October 3 at 9/8c.
