Virginia Hey (1952-06-19) 19 June 1952 (age 63) Sydney, Australia
Hey began her career as a fashion model after being discovered at a bus stop. Hey appeared on several magazine covers and started her acting career in television ads (57 in all), television drama and films in Australia and the UK.
Her film and TV credits include the Warrior Woman in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and General Pushkin's girlfriend in the Bond film The Living Daylights. She is well known for the role of the blue priestess Zotoh Zhaan in Farscape, for which she was nominated for best supporting actress by the Saturn Awards. She left the show early in the third season because she wanted to grow her hair and eyebrows (she had to shave both for the show) and also for health reasons: the blue makeup worn over her head and chest to achieve Zhaan's appearance caused her kidneys to bleed, subsequently causing a decline in her health.
