 Five Favourite Guest Stars Who Only Appeared for One Episode

This is a tough one as guest stars don’t generally leave that much of an impression, so let’s see what I can dig up from my memory.

5. Michael Weatherly in Charmed (1×18)

I love Michael Weatherly in NCIS, so imagine my surprise when watching Charmed’s earlier seasons to find him as a guest star! The character he played, Brendan Rowe, was also pretty awesome: a demon who just wants to be good. Plus he had a romance thing with my favourite sister, Prue.

4. Lara Pulver in Sherlock (2×2)

Lara Pulver as Irene Adler is pretty freaking brilliant. Of course, she’s a female character written by Steven Moffat, so there’s some moments where she could be so much more, but overall pretty freaking bamf.

3. Michael Gambon in Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol

It’s Dumbledore on Doctor Who! Even if he’s not my Dumbledore (nor my Doctor for that matter), but still! I love it when my favourite fandoms collide.

2. Colin Morgan on Doctor Who (4×10)

Speaking of when fandoms collide. When Colin Morgan who plays Merlin in BBC’s Merlin showed up on Doctor Who I didn’t notice. Because I’m dumb. I was like “this boy looks vaguely familiar.” And then it hit me, and I loved it.

1. Josh Holloway on Community (2×23)

Sawyer was my second favourite character on LOST (my first, of course, was Charlie), so when he showed up on Community my heart exploded from fangirl emotions. Even now… *faints*

    OMG, seriously, how great is Prue?! My favorite part of Charmed, though, were P3’s music guests. So 90s-riffic!

  3. Irene Adler rocked my world – she was AMAZING on Sherlock …. Had no idea about Michael Weatherly though! Must go back and watch!!

  4. I almost went with Jack Black on Community.
    Doctor Who just has so many amazing guest stars, it’s hard to pick just one (or two ;))

    It’s my favourite thing about guest stars: FANDOMS COLLIDE! (It’s been happening a lot since I’ve been rewatching the early seasons of Charmed. Everyone’s been popping up.)

    Speaking of Michael Weatherly, have you watched Dark Angel? He plays one of the main characters, Logan, and he’s brilliant in it. (Plus, Logan wears glasses. Michael Weatherly in glasses is super-sexy.)
