'Battlestar Galactica' Cylon Tricia Helfer ignites 'Burn Notice'

Tricia The finality of the series' approaching end is taking shape.

Tricia Helfer, who pulled the strings behind Gaius Baltar (James Callis) as Cylon 'Number Six' (or just Six) on "Battlestar Galactica," will continue to pull strings as she takes on the role of Carla in USA's "Burn Notice."

Up until this point, Carla had been a faceless voice on threatening phone calls to the show's main character, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan). She'll apparently have a more visual and active role as she hands out assignments for him to take care of.

Helfer has been actively preparing for life after "Battlestar," also signing a talent holding deal with Fox. For one of FHM's sexiest women, linking up with the #1 new series on cable (for 2007) is not a bad way to stay on screen.
