Nicki Clyne is a Canadian actress. She played Cally Henderson Tyrol on the Sci-Fi Channel television series Battlestar Galactica.


Clyne is best known for her role as Cally Henderson in the 2003 reimagining of Battlestar Galactica. Like several members of the cast, she was originally cast in a minor, non-recurring role, but, having impressed the showrunners, became a major part of the series until her character's death in season four.[1] In 2018, she appeared with fellow 'Battlestar' alumnus Richard Hatch in the web series Personal Space.[2]

She also featured in two episodes of the podcast Tiki Bar TV,[3] and presented an episode of HypaSpace.[citation needed] She stars alongside Lance Henriksen, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, and AFI's Davey Havok in the "illustrated film" series Godkiller.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Clyne, a member of NXIVM for 13 years, married actress Allison Mack in 2017. The marriage was alleged to have been a sham to evade United States immigration laws, and became public knowledge the following year during legal proceedings on the conspiracy and racketeering charges related to Mack's involvement with NXIVM. It has been reported that Clyne left Battlestar Galactica to be a member of NXIVM full-time.[5][6][7]

According to federal court records of NXIVM's founder Keith Raniere 2019 trial, Clyne was identified by a government witness to be a part of Raniere's "inner circle" or "first-line masters"[8][9][10] but was not charged as a co-conspirator on any of the federal charges that were brought against Raniere or other inner circle members.[11]
