I recently re-watched the Battlestar Galactica (BSG) series from beginning to end over the course of the last several days, pinned to the TV day and night like the poor saps from Portlandia. So pardon me, if I have BSG this and BSG on the mind right now. The series is THAT good.
And, after having watched all 70+ episodes, the first thing on the mind (naturally), is what are all those very hot, very beautiful female Cylon models (the Cylons, the robotic/android-type protagonists in the series were identified by model number – ex. 6,7,8), doing right now? What other movies, television or projects are they involved in currently?
And why? Well because these tough girl hotties are easy (VERY) easy on the eyes. Plus they kicked ass in BSG so why not!
Tricia Helfer – Cylon Model #6 – (A.K.A. ‘Caprica Six’)
Tricia Helfer, born in 1974 from Alberta, Canada is an actress and producer, who stands 5′ 11″ and is best known for her role as Caprica Six in Battlestar Galactica (2004).
What may be surprising to some is that she has also provided voice-overs for Halo 3, Mass Effect 2 and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.
And, don’t think Helfer is just a run-of-the-mill hottie. She is currently starring in a new series called “Killer Women,” where she plays an ass-kicking, Texas Ranger Molly Parker. See the interview with Helfer about the show, produced by Modern Family’s comedic-hottie Sofia Vergara, here at Hollywoodlife.com
Grace Park – Cylon Model #8 (A.K.A. Lt. Sharon ‘Boomer/Athena’ Valerii)
Resistance is futile in the face of Tricia Helfer, that much I know, but my personal favorite, was Grace Park, who played Boomer/Athena in Battlestar Galactica. The American-born Canadian actress, starred in virtually every episode of BSG from beginning to end, with multiple parts in the show, with Park showing us exactly why she is one of the hottest of the bunch. Like Helfer (above), Grace Park was an absolute bad ass in the BSG series and is apparently carrying on that role as Kono Kalakaua in Hawaii Five-O, now in its 4th season.
Lucy Lawless – Cylon Model #3 (A.K.A. D’Anna Biers)
New Zealander, Lucy Lawless who was actually kind’ve a ‘tool’ in Battlestar Galactica despite her fantastic looks is actually better known by most for her role as Xena, The Warrior Princess. Others may remember her as the sultry Lucretia in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and Spartacus: War of the Damned.
What’s Lucy doing now? Besides making appearances on the TV comedy Parks and Recreation, Lucy has been on the ‘interview circuit’ talking about the possibility of bringing Xena back to the screen.
I tell you what, as despised at times that James Callis’s character, Gaius Baltar was in the show, one can’t help but to admire the amount of ‘intimate’ time he had with Cylon Models #3 and #6. What can I say, the man has the gift to gab (among other annoying faults in his character….)
Lastly, check out the ‘Acting Outlaws’ photo shoot with Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck). You won’t be disappointed!
