Linda Hamilton takes on deadly new role for Syfy's Lost Girl

Once again, Linda Hamilton is playing a badass.The TV and film actress is bringing her no-nonsense persona to Syfy's lineup. It's been confirmed that she'll appear on an upcoming episode of the supernatural series Lost Girl.

Hamilton will make a guest appearance in episode 10 of Lost Girl's third season. She'll play Acacia, "a tough, sexy and ruthless assassin who has enjoyed a storied and deadly career." Unfortunately, Acacia's arrival will ruffle the feathers of our favorite succubus, Bo (Anna Silk).

In recent years, Hamilton has had quite a resurgence on the small screen. Aside from her critical role on NBC's Chuck, she's starred on Showtime's Weeds and FX's Thief.

But who can forget her biggest TV role? She was the original Catherine Chandler on CBS' Beauty and the Beast. With the CW reboot premiering this fall, we'd love to see her make a "special appearance" alongside Kristin Kreuk.

Are you excited about Hamilton guest-starring on Lost Girl?
