On nudity
Nudity to me is not taboo. I feel privileged to be one of this elite Playboy group. Besides, we all have the same parts.

Playing Number Six in 2004's "Battlestar Galactica" TV series
"I grew up with three sisters on a farm in Alberta," says Tricia. "I hauled grain and cultivated the field. We didn't have a television, and I think the only movies we saw were Star Trek and Star Wars. I'm not a chick-flick kind of gal." Tricia intended to study animal psychol­ogy and play volleyball in college, but one fateful day, at the age of 17, she was spotted in a movie-ticket line by a scout. Soon after, she moved to New York and began a successful 10-year modeling career, during which time she studied act­ing. Her big TV break came with a role on CSI: Crime Scene Investiga­tion as a body-dysmorphic model who tries to cut off her face with manicure tools. She has since starred in Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Charlie's Angels (she played Farrah Fawcett, naturally) and opposite Dennis Hopper in Memory on the big screen. The more success she has, the more she finds herself wonder­ing how all this happened. "I never thought when I was a little farm girl in Canada that I'd be a model and an actor," she says.
