Get on Up: Tricia Helfer Stars in Syfy’s ‘Ascension’


Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”) is set to star in Syfy’s new original event series “Ascension.” Created by executive producer and showrunner Philip Levens (“Smallville”), the six-hour drama tells the story of people sent by the US government into space to populate a new world.

The synopsis reads:

In 1963 the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women, and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world.

Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

Helfer plays Viondra Denniger, the beautiful and conniving, very dangerous, wife of the Ascension’s captain, a status that allows her to have great power and privilege over everyone as the ship’s Chief Steward. “Ascension” is slated to premiere in November.
