Geek Of The Week: Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica

Battlestar Galactica has a lot of street cred as a geeky, smart and fun Sci-fi show. In fact, it seems to attract non-geeks and geeks alike despite being about the end of the world and Cylons. Among the cast is former Victoria's Secret model Tricia Helfer, who plays Number Six, a Cylon that uses her looks as a weapon. "Every move and gesture of this human-form Cylon is smooth and precise," says her online profile. "She claims that God talks to her … and she, in turn, talks to Baltar. While her manifestation in Baltar's mind remains incorporeal, her numerous physical bodies each possess varying personalities and roles within the Cylon hierarchy." If that ain't Geek of the Week worthy, I don't know what is.

Helfer has been on the cover of Elle, Amica Italia and Cosmopolitan UK, and has walked the runways for Christian Dior, Givenchy, Claude Montana, Emanuel Ungaro and other top fashion designers. Geeky is chic, and even a little sexy, no?
