Born in the U.S. but raised in Canada, Park started out as a model before breaking into acting in 2000 with a part on the teen-oriented soap Edgemont and a small but memorable turn as a lady-loving stripper in Romeo Must Die. Smart (she speaks a number of languages), athletic and magnetic, she became the dream girl of geeks everywhere when she signed on to the lauded revamp of Battlestar Galactica, playing multiple incarnations of a sexy Cylon. In 2010, she took on another remake when she joined the cast of CBS's reimagined Hawaii Five-0 as Kono Kalakaua. The detective, played in the original series by male actor Zulu, is now a surfing champ, the cousin of Chin Ho Kelly and a recent police-academy grad, recruited to join McGarrett's team.
