More recently, she has expanded into significant feature film roles, including the female lead in Jason X (2001). Doig landed the role of Tina Backus on the short-lived series CI5: The New Professionals in 1998, and finally burst into the spotlight with her role as the title character on the sci-fi series Andromeda. I knew then I'd chosen the right profession and I've never looked back since.". I was leaping around my parents' house and screaming at the top of my lungs.
Doig recalls the time she heard the news of this role: "I walked out of the audition absolutely convinced I had blown it, and then my agent called to tell me I got the part. Her first significant role was on William Shatner's series TekWar. She worked on stage productions of Romeo and Juliet and Arsenic and Old Lace while auditioning for film and television roles. She did commercials and modelling work, before dropping out of high school during her final year to pursue an acting career.
At the age of sixteen, she enrolled in a modelling course and was immediately picked up by an agent. She was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, where her family held season tickets to their local theatre, and caught the acting bug at the age of nine, after seeing a production of Porgy and Bess. Doig's "exotic" appearance stems from her mixed heritage - Scottish on her father's side, Filipina on her mother's. Doig (born 8 June 1973) is a Canadian actress best known for her role on the science-fiction television series Andromeda.
