Helfer Heats Up ‘Burn Notice’

April 24, 2008 3:21 PM

Helfer“Battlestar Galactica’s” Tricia Helfer will be joining the cast of USA Network’s “Burn Notice.” She’ll be playing the role of Carla, who until now has been known to fans only as a voice who left Michael Westen, played by Jeffrey Donovan, mysteriously vague, threatening phone messages.

Ms. Helfer's addition to the cast comes a few weeks after she signed a one-year talent holding deal with Fox Television. Fox Television Studios produces "Burn Notice."

Ms. Helfer is also one of FHM Magazine’s Sexiest Women this year, according to NBC Universal’s press release announcing her addition to the cast.

With such a claim, curiosity led the Daily Blink to a Google Image search. This is one of the many red-hot photos that came up.


Very sexy indeed. It’s no surprise Ms. Helfer has also graced the pages of Playboy magazine. Surely the fan-boys and -girls everywhere rejoiced.

However, the image above recalls a recent ad campaign for Showtime’s “The Tudors.”

Cable shows are having a bloody good time, wouldn’t you say?
