Biography

Perhaps best known for playing the role of presidential aide Tory Foster on the acclaimed science fiction series Battlestar Galactica, Indian-Canadian actress Rekha Sharma began pursuing an acting career as she entered her twenties. Her first big break came with a recurring role (as Dr. Beverly Shankar) on the sci-fi series Dark Angel in 2001, and she soon followed this with a recurring role on another sci-fi show, playing Dr. Harden on Smallville. In 2006, she landed her part on Battlestar Galactica, another sci-fi series, and the drama's feverishly devoted fan base brought her a new legion of devotees. She stuck with the show, but also continued to pursue other projects, such as 2007's Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. Sharma would go on to appear on the alien invasion series V. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
