'Battlestar Galactica' favorite surfs to CBS' 'Hawaii Five-0'
Grace Park joins Alex O'Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim in the CBS pilot
According to The Hollywood Reporter
, Park will play Kono Kalakaulau, the niece of squad member Chin Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim
). The character is described as a champion surfer who gets recruited by Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin
) to join his elite branch of the Hawaii State Police.
You perhaps know Park from her long run as Lt. Sharon Valerii (and a variety of permutations) on Sci Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica
." Audiences most recently saw Park in her regular role on "The Cleaner," which aired for two seasons on A&E.
As the trade paper notes, this has been a fine spring already for the ladies of "Battlestar." As soon as she escapes from "24," Katee Sackhoff will do a drama pilot for ABC, while Tricia Helfer has a regular role on the upcoming second season of TNT's "Dark Blue."
