Tricia, originally from Alberta, Canada, grew up on a farm until, as a teenager, she was discovered by an agent who convinced her to begin modeling. As a model, Tricia appeared in ad campaigns for some the biggest companies in the world and appeared on the covers of some of the most well known publications as well. In 2002 she retired from modeling and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. Tricia’s transition into acting was immediate and she quickly landed a role on the television series Battlestar Galactica portraying the humanoid Cylon model Number Six. She received praise for her acting on the show, most notably for her ability in performing varying versions of the same character — each with its own unique storyline. She has since gone on to star in shows such as Burn Notice, Two and a Half Men, Chuck and is currently starring in Jerry Bruckheimer’s TNT drama, Dark Blue. Tricia’s contributions to animal charities are well-known and she also joined Katee for the Los Angeles AIDS Walk as well as participated in the Kiehl’s LifeRide 2010 for amfAR.
