If you are one of the lucky TV viewers who receive SOAPnet through your cable provider, or if you live in Canada, you know all about the popular series Being Erica. The show was created by Jana Sinyor and tells the story of Erica Strange (Erin Karpluk), who begins seeing a therapist to deal with regrets in her life, only to discover that Dr. Tom (Michael Riley) has the ability to send her back in time to actually relive those events and even change them. The show debuted back in 2009 and is now entering into its third season. Along the way, a number of characters have been introduced to the show with one of the more interesting being Kai Booker. Kai, as portrayed by actor Sebastian Pigott – my latest mid-season TV crush – was introduced in the second season as the barista at Goblin’s, the coffee shop where Erica frequents.

As that season played out, Erica learned Kai was also undergoing the same sort of therapy only with a different therapist. Erica eventually learns that while Kai is 22 in her present, he is actually undergoing therapy ten years into the future. He is in her time dealing with a past regret, but he doesn’t want to go back to his time. Kai does go back to his own time later in season two, though. According to trailers for Season Three, Kai will be back, much to the delight of countless fans.

Sebastian Pigott is not only an actor but also a singer, which automatically qualifies him for sexy status. He has appeared in episodes of the Canadian shows The Border, The Listener, Heartland and The Bridge. He also recently appeared in an episode of the Syfy series Haven in addition to his recurring role in Being Erica. He also appeared in the box office movie Saw 3D and the made-for-TV movie Roxy Hunter and the Mystery of the Moody Ghost. Sebastian and his brother Oliver perform together, having several of their songs featured in episodes of Being Erica, including the single “Alien Like You,” which is available at iTunes. He was also one of the finalists in season 6 of Canadian Idol.

The third season of Being Erica will start tonight at 11 PM on SOAPnet. Tune in to the show and judge Sebastian for yourself.
