About this human library book

Grace Park is a Vancouver-raised actor best known for her death-defying roles on television dramas like Battlestar Galactica and Hawaii Five-0.

She has also had roles in The Cleaner, Edgemont and CBC TV's series The Border. She has played a teenage lesbian Christian, a strong-willed humanoid Cylon, and a rookie cop who also holds her own on a mostly male team.

Her role in the cult hit Battlestar Galactica established her as a strong female icon in the male-dominated worlds of sci-fi and geek culture.

Park was born in Los Angeles, but moved to Vancouver when she was almost two years old. She is an alumna of the University of British Columbia, where she earned a psychology degree.

Park is of Korean descent.
