Grace Park co-starred on the critically acclaimed SCI FI series Battlestar Galactica, playing not one but two leading roles. Her performance in the season one cliffhanger garnered her a place in TV Guide's "100 Most Memorable Moments in TV History." The series received a Peabody Award in 2006 and has remained a critics' darling, rated one of television's best shows by Rolling Stone, TV Guide, The New York Times Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and Newsday. Although the series concluded after four seasons in March of 2009, fans of Park can look forward to Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, which is scheduled to air November 2009 as a two-hour event. Consisting of newly filmed material and a compilation of clips from the TV show and miniseries, it will reveal the Cylons' plan.
Born in Los Angeles and raised in Canada, Park received a degree in psychology from the University of British Columbia before turning her attention to film and television.
