People We Admire – Tricia Helfer


This former Canadian supermodel has so much nerd cred it’s not even funny.  She first caught our eyes as the sexy Cylon Number Six in the hit Sci-Fi drama Battlestar Galactica.  She later went on to be featured in the real-time strategy games Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and C&C3: Kane’s Wrath.  She voiced Spider-man’s former fling Black Cat in the 2008 video game Spider-man: Web of Shadows and a few episodes of The Spectacular Spider-man cartoon.  More recently she voiced Boodikka, a member of the Green Lantern Corps, in Green Lantern: First Flight.  Later this fall when you’re playing Halo 3: ODST listen for her,  she’ll be voicing a character named Dare in that upcoming 360 exclusive.

There are certainly no signs that she’s shying away from her Sci-Fi, video game, and comic book loving fan base, and we appreciate her all the more for that.

Oh yeah, as you can see, she isn’t hard on the eyes either.
