Tricia Helfer is in the media spotlight both for her return to the Syfy cable network on which she will co-star in the television series "Ascension" and her recent statement that she is against cosmetic testing on animals.
She started her career as a model but has become known as one of the most popular science-fiction actresses because of her performance on the television series "Battlestar Galactica". For many men and some women she is the beautiful humanoid Cylon Number Six who they would gladly travel to space to spend time with.
In 2014 she starred in the television series "Killer Women" in which she played a tough, beautiful Texas Ranger who is capturing women who use their feminine wiles to both seduce and kill. The show was a favourite of many on social media and she was very impressive in displaying the different dimensions of her character who could be tough, romantic, and conflicted as she balanced her personal, family and career.
The role brought her to the attention of many primetime television viewers and thus makes her statement against cosmetic testing on animals all the more impactful because she is someone who woman recognize for her attractive looks and her strong roles.
There are some actresses whose words carry 'weight' and will draw attention to issues and her statement urging the government of Canada to stop cosmetic testing on animals is very likely going to resonate with many fans.
She is also a popular topic of conversation because of the news that she will be co-starring with Brian Holt in the limited edition television science fiction series "Ascension". The thought of her in any science-fiction role makes science-fiction fans smile and with her impressive dramatic performance on "Killer Women" fans are already talking about the premiere of this series on November 24.
Tricia Helfer is back in the science-fiction realm and her fans are eagerly awaiting her return.
