Lorena Gale (born 9 May 1958 in Montreal, Quebec) is an award-winning Canadiana actress, director, and writer.

Gale has been active in stage, movie, and television acting since the 1980s. Gale is a wife, mother and author of two award-winning plays, Angélique and Je me souviens.

Recently, Gale has acted in several A-list movies, including Fantastic Four, The Chronicles of Riddick, and The Exorcism of Emily Rose. She has also appeared on the small screen in the series Smallville, as well as Battlestar Galactica as the priest, Elosha.

Concerning her role in Battlestar Galactica, Gale has said that she most enjoyed the woman-to-woman scenes with Mary McDonnell (Laura Roslin). Also, she herself (not her character) feels sorry for the Cylons because they want so desperately to belong to something. She believes that there is no such thing as "artificial intelligence", just "intelligence". She enjoys watching the show as a fan. (Podcast)


"Canadian Society has become too multiracial that racism, true systemic and institutionalized racism, is constantly being challenged. I have always believed that Canada has the potential to be a Utopian Society. Sadly, we are too influenced by our American cousins." --Gale [1]
