There are some people who the camera just loves. Perhaps that's why many models make the leap to acting.
Canadian Tricia Helfer won Ford Models' "Supermodel of the World" contest in 1992 and went on to model for Ralph Lauren, Versace, Chanel and Giorgio Armani while also appearing on the covers of Elle, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and Vogue magazines. Her big breakthrough when it came to acting was when she was cast to play the humanoid Cylon Number Six in the re-imagined "Battlestar Galactica" television series in 2004.
