Check out these six things you never knew about Tricia Helfer!

  • I know how to weld. Not good, mind you, but I know how.
  • I have 4 artificial discs in my back.
  • I have never skied or snowboarded. I know, shocking for someone who grew up near the Canadian Rockies!
  • When I get home from set after a night shoot, I have a bourbon before going to bed.
  • After a good day’s ride on my motorbike, I absolutely crave and must have … chips and salsa.
  • I quite often swear like a trucker.
