Simone Bailly is a Canadian actress. She is known for her roles on the series The L Word, Smallville, and Battlestar Galactica, among other works.
She has stated:
[“Blood & Treasure” is] my first role where I get to play Chinese (which I am, half-Chinese) so that was a big deal for me. I usually play so many other races including Caucasian, so it was great to finally represent that part of my heritage.
