RoleEmily Hollander

Leah Cairns (born June 2, 1974 in North Vancouver, British Columbia) is a Canadian actress known for her parts as Emily Hollander on "Kyle XY", Lt. Margaret 'Racetrack' Edmondson on Sci-Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica", Jenna on the Canadian hitseries "Godiva's", and starring next to Al Pacino in the movie "88 Minutes".

Leah Cairns grew up in Kamloops, BC, with dreams of becoming a professional dancer, which were dashed when she broke her back in a car accident at 16. When her dance team went to an international competition in her graduating year, rather than sit and mope at home, she headed off to Costa Rica, starting an eight-year backpacking odyssey that took her to 36 countries. She happened into an improvisation class at an ashram in India. A Canadian actress who saw her on stage suggested that she try acting upon returning to Canada. She did, as a hobby at first, but soon turned it into her profession.
