McClure at the 2013 WonderCon
March 22, 1980
Durban, South Africa
Kandyse McClure (born March 22, 1980) is a South African-born Canadian actress. She is best known for playing Anastasia Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel's television program Battlestar Galactica. As of 2013, she stars as Dr. Clementine Chasseur on the Netflix original series Hemlock Grove.
McLure first television appearance was a lead role with Lou Diamond Phillips in the 1999 telefilm In a Class of His Own that was followed by the Fox Family teen drama Higher Ground (together with Jewel Staite, Hayden Christensen, and A.J. Cook) and the NBC Saturday-morning series Just Deal, both of which premiered in 2000. The year 2000 was also the time period when McClure played a recurring role in the Canadian drama television series Da Vinci’s Inquest.
In 2002, McClure portrayed the recurring character of Elizabeth Munroe on Showtime's Jeremiah, alongside Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Also in that year, the actress played the role of Sue Snell in the telefilm remake of Stephen King's novel Carrie.
From 2003 to 2009, McClure played the character of Anastasia "Dee" Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel series 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 of the series until January 2009.
In 2011 McClure played the girlfriend of Stuart Davis in the independent short film Just Be Yourself, a comedy about a desperate man who is offered a job to "just be himself." McClure then joined Davis again in 2011 to co-host the second season of the late-night HDNet program Sex, God, Rock 'n' Roll. In 2012 McClure joined the cast of Netflix original series Hemlock Grove (premiered in January 2013) and completed the feature film Broken Kingdom (alongside Rachel Leigh Cook). McClure has also appeared in other television programs, such as Whistler, Andromeda, Jake 2.0, Smallville, and Reaper.
In 2008, in support of the Babz Chula Lifeline for Artists Society that was raising money for the cancer treatment of Babz Chula, a friend and fellow Canadian actor, McClure and her Battlestar Galactica colleague Tahmoh Penikett awarded a dinner opportunity, with both of them in Vancouver, to the highest bidder in an auction. As of 2013, McClure continues to work with the non-profit organization CARE Canada to address poverty in the world's developing regions.
