Kandyse McClure (born March 22, 1980) is an actress, best known for playing Anastasia Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel's television program Battlestar Galactica.



Born Candice McClure[1] in Durban, South Africa,[2] she graduated from West Vancouver Secondary School in 1998. As of 2005 McClure resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.

In 2008, in support of the Babz Chula Lifeline for Artists Society, which was raising money for their friend and fellow Canadian actor Chula's cancer treatment, McClure and her Battlestar Galactica colleague Tahmoh Penikett auctioned off the opportunity to have dinner with both of them in Vancouver.[citation needed]

Acting career

McClure appeared in roles on Fox Family's teen drama Higher Ground[citation needed] (along with Jewel Staite, Hayden Christensen, A.J. Cook), as well as the NBC's Saturday-morning series Just Deal. Her first lead role was with Lou Diamond Phillips in the 1999 telefilm In a Class of His Own, where she portrayed the recurring character of Elizabeth Munroe on Showtime's Jeremiah[citation needed].

McClure later played the role of Sue Snell in the 2002 telefilm remake of Stephen King's Carrie[3]

From 2003 to 2009 she played Anastasia "Dee" Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica. McClure's character, a Petty Officer Second Class in the Colonial Fleet, was not featured in the original 1978 series, but was initially an analogue of Sarah Rush's original series character, Flight Corporal Rigel. McClure was a regular cast member until January 2009.[4]

McClure recently narrated part of an audiobook METAtropolis The Red in the Sky is Our Blood (The Dawn of Uncivilization) by Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear[citation needed].

She completed filming on the movies Broken Kingdom and Cole[citation needed], as well as a TV adaptation of Stephen King's Children of the Corn, which was released in 2009[citation needed].

She co-starred in the TV series Persons Unknown - a psychological drama said to be a cross between The Prisoner, Lost and The Twilight Zone.[5][6] The series was picked up by NBC but not renewed for a second season.

In 2011 she played the girlfriend of Stuart Davis in the indie film Just Be Yourself, a comedy short about a desperate man who is offered a job to 'just be himself'.[7] She also co-hosts, with Davis, the second season (2012) of the late-night HDNet program Sex, God, Rock 'n' Roll.[8][9]

In 2012, McClure joined the cast of Hemlock Grove.[10]
