Six Out of Six! Cylon Alert as Supanova Celebrates!

Your friends here at Supanova are delighted to announce the addition of actress TRICIA HELFER to our galaxy of stars appearing at the Sydney and Perth expos.

Tricia, a former fashion model for labels like Chanel, Dior, Versace and Givenchy, first appeared on the small screen as the producer and host of Canada’s Next Top Model. She was soon headhunted by the creators of rebooted sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica to portray Number Six, a Cylon (an android indistinguishable from humans) of critical importance to the story. In addition to her popular role on Battlestar, Tricia has also appeared in Chuck (Chuck’s season two handler), Human Target (engineer, Stephanie Dobbs), Burn Notice (Carla, Michael’s season two nemesis), Lie to Me (art thief, Naomi), Warehouse 13 (FBI Agent Bonnie Belski), and Two and a Half Men, in which she appeared as Gail, a love interest for (a pre-‘Tiger Blood’) Charlie Sheen.

On top of her TV work, Tricia is in high demand as a voice over artist for cartoons and console games. Among her many characters are Black Cat in The Spectacular Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows; Kilian Qatar in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars; Veronica Dare in Halo 3: ODST; EDI, the ship-borne artificial intelligence aboard the Normandy SR-2 in Mass Effect 2 and 3; and Sarah Kerrigan in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and its expansion sets, Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void.

In her rare breaks from work, Tricia pairs up with Battlestar gal pal Katee ‘Starbuck’ Sackhoff to raise money for their charitable foundation Acting Outlaws. The two actresses undertake epic cross-country motorcycle rides (Tricia prefers the BMW R1200GS dual sport) to raise money for animal rights, social justice and environmental causes, such as post oil spill Gulf Coast restoration.

Fans can meet Tricia at Sydney Supanova (June 16 and 17) and Perth Supanova (June 23 and 24) where she will be signing autographs and posing for portraits with fans, as well as giving behind-the-scenes Q&A talks about her work.

Unfortunately Colin Cunningham, from Falling Skies and Stargate SG-1, has had to cancel due to landing a role that forces him to remain home. Stay tuned for a new guest to replace him shortly.

She may be a Number 6. but she's 10 out of 10 to us!
