Jamie Bamber and Tricia Helfer may be enemies on Battlestar Galactica, but they’re buddies in real life because both are concerned about saving animals. For Jamie Bamber, it’s saving the black bears of Canada from being hunted, killed and turned into furry hats, and Tricia Helfer wants to save cats. Because, er, apparently people are hunting, killing, and eating cats. I’m not sure about the last part, but I’m pretty sure about the first two. Probably.
Anyhoo, both actors recently did ads for PETA. Helfer’s was last year, and for some reason the former model turned actress who usually shows up wearing as little clothes as possible in her photoshoots decided to keep all of her clothes on for her PETA ad. Bamber was less shy, and shed all (well, all that we could see anyway) for his campaign. Look, Tricia, if you’re going to be stingy about the skin, I don’t know if I want to save your cats. There, I said it.
By the by, Tricia Helfer’s cat is named “Mister Nix”. Coincidence? I think not! Call me, Tricia!
