She was born Candice McClure[4] in Durban, South Africa.[5] She is of Cape Coloured descent.

McClure graduated from West Vancouver Secondary School in 1998.[citation needed]


Acting career

McClure's first television appearance was a lead role with Lou Diamond Phillips in the 1999 telefilm In a Class of His Own that was followed by the Fox Family teen drama Higher Ground (together with Jewel Staite, Hayden Christensen, and A.J. Cook) and the NBC Saturday-morning series Just Deal, both of which premiered in 2000. The year 2000 was also the time period when McClure played a recurring role in the Canadian drama television series Da Vinci’s Inquest.[6]

In 2002, McClure portrayed the recurring character of Elizabeth Munroe on Showtime's Jeremiah, alongside Luke Perry and Malcolm-Jamal Warner.[6] Also in that year, the actress played the role of Sue Snell in the telefilm remake of Stephen King's novel Carrie.[7]

From 2003 to 2009, McClure played the character of Anastasia "Dee" Dualla on the Sci Fi Channel series Battlestar Galactica. McClure's character, a Petty Officer Second Class in the Colonial Fleet, was not featured in the original 1978 series, but was initially an analogue of Sarah Rush's original series character Flight Corporal Rigel. McClure was a regular cast member of the series until January 2009.[8]

McClure then appeared in a 2009 television adaptation of King's Children of the Corn[9] and the Carl Bessai feature film from the same year Cole.[10] In 2010 the television series Persons Unknown, in which McClure co-starred, premiered,[11] but the series was not renewed for a second season after it was initially picked up by NBC.[12]

In 2011 McClure played the girlfriend of Stuart Davis in the independent short film Just Be Yourself, a comedy about a desperate man who is offered a job to "just be himself."[13][14] McClure then joined Davis again in 2011 to co-host the second season of the late-night HDNet program Sex, God, Rock 'n' Roll.[15] In 2012 McClure joined the cast of Netflix original series Hemlock Grove (premiered in January 2013[9])[16] and completed the feature film Broken Kingdom (alongside Rachael Leigh Cook).[9][unreliable source?] McClure has also appeared in other television programs, such as Whistler, Andromeda, Jake 2.0, Smallville, and Reaper.[6]

On 2 February 2016 Heritage Canada featured Viola Desmond in the 82nd Heritage Minute,[17] to mark the beginning of Black History Month. The video was filmed on location in High River, Alberta in June 2015. It features Kandyse McClure as Viola Desmond.[18] Civil rights activist Viola Desmond, often described as the Rosa Parks of Canada, was an entrepreneur who challenged segregation in Nova Scotia in the 1940s.

Personal life

As of 2013, McClure continues to work with the non-profit organization CARE Canada to address poverty in the world's developing regions.[9] As of 2013[update], McClure resides in Vancouver, British Columbia.[9]
