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."
Examining previous events in the Battlestar Galactica world, this sci-fi drama follows Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber) as he takes over as commander of Battlestar Pegasus, promotes Kendra Shaw (Stephanie Chaves-Jacobsen) to second in command and fights for his ship's survival. Through flashbacks, the film also closely explores the complicated relationship between Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) and Cylon agent Gina (Tricia Helfer).
