Tracy pursued a full-time acting career and studied at the Herbert Berghoff Studio and the Wynn Hanmann Studio. Her first role came in the television movie Twirl with Heather Locklear and soon after she was cast in her first series, The Renegades, opposite Patrick Swayze. She also starred as Charlton Heston's daughter, Monica Colby, in the popular series The Colbys and reprised her role later on Dynasty.
Coming off a successful year displaying her comedic talent as Catherine "Cat" Grant, the Daily Planet's laser-tongued society columnist on ABC's Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, Tracy joined the cast of Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years as Amanda Carpenter, playing the character with an explosive mixture of passion and danger. Tracy's versatility as an actress continued to show in her work as she starred in Galaxy Beat, a wacky off-beat comedy with Gregory Harrison, played a Cardassian scientist in an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and starred as an immortal in a recurring role on Highlander: The Series. In one of the highest rated TV movies of 1996, Tracy held her own as attorney Anita Smithfield opposite Larry Hagman's J.R. in Dallas: J.R. Returns and reprised the role several years later in Dallas: War of the Ewings.
Tracy is also well-known for her lead role as Captain Elizabeth Lochley, a career military officer, in the award-winning international hit series Babylon 5, in which she starred alongside Bruce Boxleitner, Jerry Doyle and Mira Furlan.
Her feature film credits include Dangerous Toys with Bentley Mitchum, Dead Space with Billy Dee Williams, Toy Soldiers with Tim Robbins, Watchers (the film adaptation of Dean Koontz' best seller), the lead role of Evelyn opposite Maxwell Caulfield in Dangerous Company, and Timebomb co-starring Michael Biehn and Patsy Kensit.
On stage Tracy starred in The Sicilian Bachelor, which enjoyed a six month run at the Tiffany Theatre. She won critical acclaim for her dynamic performance and received the Daily News coveted "Marquis Award" for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy.
In addition to her film, television and stage work, Tracy takes on other projects that she believes in. This was made evident when she teamed up with Black Entertainment Television's populat talk show Other Voices host, Bev Smith, to host the video Rape is Not An Option. The video makes a convincing case for rape prevention, providing several highly effective, common-sense self-defense techniques which require no special skills. Rape is Not An Option was "Highly Recommended" in both Library Journal and Video Rating Guide.
Known for her athletic prowess, Tracy was a natural to star in two workout videos. In Tough Stuff, which she also produced, she leads a plyometric workout with friends Marcus Allen, former world champion boxer Carlos Palomino and pro-beach volleyball player Randy Stoklos. The second video, Mind Your Body on ABC Home Video, combines a high energy workout with Tracy's motivational coaching.
Tracy's passion for languages, the arts and travel are a balancing counterpoint to her continuing commitment to physical fitness and to acting. Most recently Tracy has starred in the Babylon 5 TV movies River of Souls and A Call to Arms, the Canadian TV series The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne, and reprised her role as Captain Lochley in the Babylon 5 spinoff series Crusade.
