What can you tell me about the beautiful actress who played Number Six on the TV series Battlestar Galactica?

Tricia Helfer was a model for 10 years before turning to acting at age 29. "There’s definitely that ‘model-turned-actor stigma’ that you have to overcome when you make the changeover, but thankfully I was able to make that transition," says Helfer, 35, who grew up on a farm in Alberta, Canada. Watch for her in the upcoming horror film Open House and as a guest on the debut of the TV series Human Target in January. In her spare time, she devotes herself to animal causes and rides motorbikes with her husband.
