Number Six Goes Green

March 4, 2009

The colour most often associated with the character of Six on Battlestar Galactica has got to be red, for that sexy dress she was wearing when we were first introduced to the character.  Yet the actress who plays her is definitely shifting to green.

The official website says the director and cast will be on hand for a Q & A session after the 7:10pm showing this Friday night, March 6th.  Tricia’s busy working in LA, but there is a chance that Tahmoh will make it up, depending on his schedule.  The writer/director, Mark Leiren-Young, will be on hand for a number of the screenings over the weekend, as well as other guests representing the David Suzuki Foundation, Greenpeace and the Western Canada Wilderness Committee.  I’ve also been told that a portion of all proceeds will go to the Stanley Park Fund.

Keeping with the green theme, Tricia Helfer has spent a lot of time recently in the press talking of her plans to build an eco-friendly home in her native Alberta.  There’s a website up now, called www.triciagreen.com
