Genelle Williams (born February 18, 1984) is a Canadian actress who is best known for her roles as Kim Carlisle in Radio Free Roscoe, as DJ in The Latest Buzz, and as the innkeeper Leena in Warehouse 13.

Career[edit]

Williams expressed interest in acting since she was young, and studied acting with Dean Armstrong, who played one of the principal characters in the Showtime series Queer as Folk.

Williams became famous in Canada when she joined the cast of Family's Radio Free Roscoe, which aired between 2002 and 2004. In 2003, she played Kim Carlisle, a DJ for "Cougar Radio", and love interest of Robert McGrath. Over three years, she also played multiple roles on the popular CTV series Degrassi: The Next Generation.

The two programs began to air in the United States late in 2004 on Nickelodeon's teen network, The N, and Williams began to gain celebrity status in the United States among teenage audiences.

After taking a break in her career, she appeared in the Family’s new show The Latest Buzz as Diane Jeffreys (abbreviated "DJ"), the editor and supervisor of the young writers of Teen Buzz. She then portrayed Leena on the Syfy series Warehouse 13 from the series's start in July 2009 until the midpoint of season four in October 2012.
