Stripped: Tricia Helfer Went From Battlestar Galactica To Playboy

A 63-year young bad girl stuck in the free spirit mode of her youth. When she’s not nude horseback riding, she writes for Filthy Gorgeous Media. Her bad girl expertise on all things filthy comes from her years of exploring swinger clubs with her late girlfriend, Bella, and small-bit roles in erotic films.

At Filthy Gorgeous Media, we celebrate a woman’s right to use her body any way she wants to, which is why we are advocates for porn stars and any woman willing to take her clothes off on camera. Many people stereotype these people as trashy, emotionally “broken”, or women who choose to bare it all for the camera because they had to. In order to break down the stereotypes of these women, the FGM staff has collected some evidence that disproves these theories and enforces a more positive view. Stripped is all about stripping away a perceived perception of a woman in order to reveal who she really is.

Stripped: Tricia Helfer Went From Battlestar Galactica To Playboy

Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer proved that even Cylons look good in their birthday suits when she appeared in the 2007 issue of Playboy. As a Canadian model and actress, Helfer is best known for playing the humanoid Cylon Number Six in Ronald D. Moore’s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series from 2004 to 2009. Although her commonly-seen Battlestar characters of the Number Six copies have platinum blonde hair, the actress is a natural brunette and her talent for acting came after she first experienced success as a model.

Helfer won the 1992 Ford Supermodel of the World award and went on to grace the covers of such magazines as Elle, Amica Italia, and Cosmopolitan UK. As a model for Victoria’s Secret, she had appeared in advertisements for clients including Giorgio Armani, Oil of Olay, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Helfer then started acting in 2002 after taking night classes for a year and a half in New York City. Her big break came in 2004 when, despite her then-relative lack of acting experience, David Eick cast her a Number Six for Battlestar Galatica. “She was great from the first time she auditioned,” said David Eick in an interview, “and I’m glad to say that I managed to convince everyone she was perfect for the part.” According sources, Helfer was originally very confused on how to portray a humanoid robot, so she was told to watch the sci-fi classic, Blade Runner, to get a better perspective.

After Battlestar Galactica wrapped up in 2009, Helfer went on to guest star in a multitude of TV shows, often playing ass-kicking roles on either side of the law. “I like to think I’m a strong female myself, so I’m more drawn to that than to someone meek,” Helfer said during an interview. “I grew up one of four daughters on a farm, so I was driving tractors and fixing machinery. I certainly appreciate a nice pair of high heels and a pretty dress, but I have no problem getting down and dirty. Because I modeled for 10 years, people don’t realize that I’m a tomboy or that I do my own stunts.” However, Helfer prefers to do her own stunt work and because of it, she has four artificial discs in her back and two in her neck from mishaps while doing her own stunts.
