In 2010, Helfer booked a series regular role on the ten-episode arc of Jerry Bruckheimer's "Dark Blue," starring opposite Dylan McDermott and went on to do a variety of terrific roles on series such as "Suits," on USA Network, "Key and Peale," "The Librarians," "Community," "Chuck," "Jeremiah" and "Franklin & Bash," among others.

In addition to her vast array of television roles, Tricia starred in the film, "A Beginner's Guide to Endings," with Harvey Keitel, Scott Caan, and JK Simmons and ;ater, went on to star in "Authors Anonymous" with Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting. Next up, is another lead role in thriller, "Isolation" co-starring Luke Malby, a film that will portray the true events of a couple vacationing in the Bahamas. The getaway quickly spirals out of control, forcing the couple into survival mode.

Adding to her impressive resume, Helfer has done prolific voiceover work in mega-hit video game franchises including, playing the roles of Commander Veronica Dare in Halo: ODST, EDI in Mass Effect 2 and 3, Sarah Kerrigan in Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, for which she won the 2010 VGA for Best Performance by a Human Female, as well as in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. She also showcased her voice talent in animated productions, "Green Lantern: First Flight," a Cartoon Network TV movie, on Disney XD's "The Spectacular Spiderman", and on Disney XD's TRON: Uprising.
