After Kandyse McClure finished high school, becoming an actress was the furthest thing from her mind. She was considering a medical career until she found herself auditioning for a play as a favor to one of her mother's acquaintances -- and McClure hasn't looked back.

Born March 22, 1980, in Durban, South Africa, McClure has moved briskly up the Hollywood ladder, starting with the made-for-cable drama In a Class of His Own (1999). The next year she was cast opposite Hayden Christensen in the short-lived series "Higher Ground" and later garnered growing attention with her portrayal of the haughty Sue Snell in the TV remake of Carrie (2002).

But thanks to a four-season stint on "Battlestar Galactica" (2004-09), McClure is most recognizable as Lt. Anastasia Dualla, the vessel's lone female officer. In 2012, McClure was tapped to play an animal behaviorist in the Netflix original series "Hemlock Grove."
