Helfer can be seen in her fourth season of the Sci-Fi channel's highest-ever rated series Battlestar Galactica, opposite Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell as the beautiful and brilliant Number 6, a Cylon out to destroy the human race that created her. She continued the role in the television movie Battlestar Galactica: Razor.
Helfer's other film credits include the Independent feature Memory, as Stephanie Jacobs, a strikingly beautiful painter and love interest of Billy Zane's Dr. Taylor Biggs. Dennis Hopper and Ann-Margret also star. She played Leila Cole in The Green Chain, a mockumentary; Sasha in the indy Spiral, with David Joel Moore; General Kilian Qatar, in the video game Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars; and the lead role of Ally in the feature film The Genius Club. She also produced and hosted Canada's Next Top Model.
A former Victoria's Secret model, Helfer was born and raised in Alberta, Canada on the family grain farm. Discovered by a model scout, she was sent to New York where she quickly won the Ford Supermodel of the World Contest and signed with Elite Models. While gracing the pages of Elle and Cosmopolitan, her numerous campaigns would include Ralph Lauren, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior.
Helfer discovered her acting ambitions at this time while serving as correspondent to Canada's Ooh La La Fashion Television. Within two years she would move to Los Angeles and take the role of Sarah, the protagonist's love interest, in the two-hour premiere of the Showtime series Jeremiah. She then memorably portrayed a model with the self-destructive desire to cut off her own face on the hit series CSI:; perfectly captured Farrah Fawcett in NBC's MOW Charlie's Angels; and played the leading role of Eva in the feature White Rush.
