In a recent interview with The TV Addict, Tricia Helfer talks about a “mystery pilot” that she is currently in negotiations for.
I’m right in the middle of pilot season right now. It’s my first year in five years of being available because of Battlestar now being finished. I got Battlestar in my first year of acting, so definitely being on a show, it’s amazing to be on a show, you want to be on a show, but it also limits what you can do with your hiatus when you’re shooting 22 episodes a year of a show. Now is really the first pilot season and I’m actually in negotiations right now with a pilot that I’m quite excited about, but it’s a little too early to stake my claim on it yet until everyone has signed on the dotted line. But yes, I’m looking, as one of the callers earlier asked about varying roles and I’m definitely looking for my next project to be something that’s a little bit different. First off, I’ll be playing a human and not a spy. But yes, I’ll be looking for something that varies the roles up.
Winter Is Coming: This isn’t much to go on, but could it be that she is referring to Game of Thrones? Obviously, this being pilot season, there are dozens and dozens of pilots currently casting right now. And one could argue that the role of Cersei isn’t very different from the role of Six. However, it is certainly an interesting rumor.
