April 9, 2008: "Tricia Helfer Signs TV Deal At Fox"
Tricia Helfer has inked a talent holding deal with Fox Broadcasting.
Under the one-year pact, the actress will star in a series project for the network, probably a drama.
Fox head of casting Marcia Shulman first spotted model-turned-actress Helfer on Sci Fi Channel's hit series, where she plays the beautiful but dangerous Cylon Number Six.
Last season, Fox cast Helfer in Jonathan Mostow's drama pilot "Them."
"After we saw the pilot, we were wowed by her," Shulman said.
Shulman then went to the Toronto International Film Festival, where she saw Canadian-born Helfer in the indie "Walk All Over Me."
"She was so incredible in it," Shulman said. "She had a pretty remarkable range, she showed vulnerability and strength. She is a star."
"Walk," in which Helfer stars opposite Leelee Sobieski, is being released in the U.S. by the Weinstein Co.

Tricia Helfer biography (bio):
Tricia Helfer is a Canadian supermodel and actress best known as Number Six in Battlestar Galactica.
Helfer was born in the rural community of Donalda in Stettler County, Alberta. She was raised on her family's grain farm and at the age of 17, while standing in line at a local movie theatre, she was discovered by modelling agency scout Kelly Streit.
In 1992, she won Ford Models' Supermodel of the World Contest and was subsequently signed to the Elite Model Management and is currently signed with Trump Model Management. She has appeared in ad campaigns, including Ralph Lauren, Chanel, and Giorgio Armani. Helfer has walked for top fashion shows such as Carolina Herrera, Christian Dior, Claude Montana, Givenchy, John Galliano, and Dolce & Gabbana. Helfer has graced the covers of Flare, Amica, ELLE, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and Vogue, among others. She has also posed nude for the February 2007 issue of Playboy.
While working in New York as a model, Helfer hosted a Canadian television fashion program Ooh La La. She relocated to Los Angeles in 2002 to pursue a full-time film career. Her first acting assignment was a co-starring role as Sarah on the television series Jeremiah. Thereafter she played the role of a model, Ashleigh James, in the May 16, 2002 episode "The Hunger Artist" on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. In 2002, Helfer played the female lead, Eva, in the independent film White Rush. In 2003, Helfer was chosen to play Number Six, the Cylon agent in the Sci Fi channel miniseries Battlestar Galactica (2003). The miniseries, which was a remake of the 1970s series Battlestar Galactica, was a huge ratings success, due in part to the visually attractive mind games between Number Six and scientist Dr. Gaius Baltar. It has now become a television series in which Helfer is a main cast member; as of early 2007 the series had completed its third season.
In the fall of 2003, Helfer was offered the role depicting Farrah Fawcett in the NBC telemovie Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Charlie's Angels'. She also regularly appeared in photo shoots by Maxim magazine and was the magazine's wall calendar girl for 2005. She was ranked #83 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2005. Concurrent with her role in Battlestar Galactica, Helfer began producing and hosting Canada's Next Top Model on May 31, 2006. In 2006, Helfer appeared in the motion pictures Spiral and The Green Chain. She appeared in Maxim Magazine in the fall of 2006..
In October 2006, it was announced that Helfer would not return to host the second season of Canada's Next Top Model in order to concentrate on her work on Battlestar Galactica. Helfer also played a major role in Electronic Arts Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, as a character named Kilian Qatar, along with her Battlestar Galactica co-star, Grace Park. She also starred in the episode 'Roadkill' on the second season of the American paranormal drama TV series Supernatural.
