Biography

Originally a model who turned to acting in her native Canada, Grace Park quickly rose from unknown commodity to celebrity, thanks to playing Lt. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii on the popular remake of "Battlestar Galactica" (Sci Fi Channel, 2004-09). Prior to her success, she spent five seasons on the Canadian coming-of-age show, "Edgemont" (CBC, 2001-05), which helped establish her as a star on the rise. But it was "Battlestar" that not only propelled her into the spotlight, but turned her into an unwitting sex symbol to sci-fi geeks across the world - a much-ballyhooed 2006 spread in Maxim only helped fuel her newfound status as a cyberspace pinup. Because she was an integral part of the series - particularly in light of playing different variations of a Cylon sleeper agent - Park was allowed to convey her full range, which helped opened doors to other projects, including a leading role on the short-lived drama, "The Cleaner" (A&E, 2008-09) and a recurring part on the Canadian-based procedural "The Border" (CBC Television, 2008-2010). By the time she starred opposite Alex O'Loughlin in the reboot of "Hawaii Five-0" (CBS, 2010- ), Park was well-established as a fine leading actress capable of shining in just about any medium or genre.
