Tricia Helfer, Out-of-this-World Beauty

Tricia Helfer Is An Out-Of-This-World Beauty

Tricia Helfer. She likes cats. She refuses to answer how many cats she has. Apparently, she has a lot.

Tricia Janine Helfer (born April 11, 1974) is a Canadian model and actress who skyrocketed to national attention as the humanoid Cylon Number Six in Ronald D. Moore's re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series (2004–2009).

Tricia is from a farm in Donalda, Alberta. She is of German/ English/ Norwegian/ Swedish heritage. The story goes that while standing in line to see a movie, Tricia was spotted by a talent scout and she suddenly realized her life's work was at hand (isn't that how it always happens?).

Winning the 1992 Ford Models' Supermodel of the World Contest also probably had something to do with Tricia's career choice, too.


While Tricia is known for her high-profile 'pretty girl' parts, she also had quite a career as a model. Her many covers include:
  • Canada: 'Flare' - February 1993; 'Images' - Fall 1993; 'Fashion' - September 1993; 'Flare' - October 1994; 'Elle' (Quebec) - October 1995; 'Flare' - February 1999
  • France: 'Biba' - March 1994
  • Germany: 'Elle' - July 1993; 'Maxim' - January 2007
  • Italy: 'Amica' - November 1996; 'Anna' - 2000
  • Spain: 'Vogue' - January 1994; 'Woman' - October 1994; 'Elle' - January 1996; 'Moda' - January 1997; 'DT' - December 2004; 'Playboy' - March 2007
  • UK: 'Cosmopolitan' - November 1994; 'Woman's Journal' - December 1994; 'Cosmopolitan' - July 1996; 'Cosmopolitan' - July 1998; 'Marie Claire' (supplement) - May 1999; 'Woman's Journal' - July 2000

Pretty much everybody agrees that Tricia Helfer is a pretty girl, and she doesn't have to work very hard at it, either. She has made the Maxim Magazine Hot 100 Women of 2007 list and the cover of Playboy.

Her great beauty drew her into the Hollywood sphere, where she has starred in a bunch of television series and films. She began her career as an actress by hosting Canada's Next Top Model, and then moved to Los Angeles and decided to pursue acting full-time.


So, Tricia's film credits are numerous and staggering in their scope:
2000 Eventual Wife: Inga
2003 White Rush: Eva
2004 Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels: Farrah Fawcett
2006 The Genius Club: Ally Simon Memory: Stephanie Jacobs

Tricia's best-remembered roles, though, have been on television. She was the scheming Viondra Denninger in SYFY television miniseries "Ascension" (2014), for instance.

Other prominent television roles have been on "Battlestar Galactica" as Number Six, "Dark Blue" (2010) as Alex Rice, and "Lucifer" (2016-18) as Charlotte Richards. Tricia talks about her "Lucifer" role (she plays the Devil's mother) here.


Tricia also has become a major player in video games such as "Mass Effect 2" (2010), "Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty" (2010), and "Mortal Kombat X" (2015). Naturally, once you become a figure in a video game, you usually pop up in the sequels as well. Video games play to Tricia's strength as a science fiction vixen.

So, this country girl from the small farm in Canada remains a force in Hollywood.


Every year brings new projects from Tricia Helfer, and there's no reason for her to slow down anytime soon. She lived in the Beverly Hills Post Office area until putting her house there on sale in March 2018. Currently, she has a house in the mountains above Sherman Oaks, California.

Tricia Helfer continues to act. She joined the cast of "Lucifer" in 2016, and as of this writing, that role continues. There is no indication that will be Helfer's last big role, either, and even if it is, there are always video games to fall back on. Clearly, the sky is not the limit for beautiful actress Tricia Helfer.
