As bike-cop Cory McNamara, Paula Trickey spent a good portion of each day on wheels, something she was accustomed to even before landing the role.  “I used to compete in 50 mile bike races,” says Trickey.  “I’ve always been very active and very athletic, so this role is perfect for me.”


Raised in Tulsa, OK, Trickey earned the title of Miss Oklahoma in the 1985 Teen All-American Pageant.  Following high school, Trickey moved to Dallas where she studied acting before moving to Los Angeles where she appeared in a series of notable “Don’t Drink & Drive” public service announcements with Aretha Franklin.


“Pacific Blue” represents Trickey’s second starring role on a television series, the first being NBC’s “Tradewinds.”  She had recurring roles on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” “Renegade,” and “High Tide.”  Trickey guest-starred in such series as “Silk Stalkings,” “Who’s the Boss,” “Step by Step,” “Civil Wars,” “Home Free,” “Designing Women,” “One West Waikiki,” and HBO’s “Sessions.”

Her feature film work includes a starring role in “A Kiss Goodnight” and co-starring roles in “Mr. Saturday Night,” “Black Scorpion,” and “Lovecrimes.”
