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 advertisements (57 in all), television drama and films in Australia and the UK.
She appeared in the music video for Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles as a woman being lowered in a giant test tube. The video is remembered best for being the first music video broadcast on MTV in 1981
Her film and television 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 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.
Hey has also appeared in various Australian soap operas including Prisoner (Cell Block H) as Leigh Templar, Neighbours as Beth Travers, E Street as Jennifer St. James, and Pacific Drive as Margaux Hayes.
