  Biography  

 career
At 16, Doig enrolled in a modelling course and was immediately offered representation by an agent. She did commercials and model work before dropping out of high school during her final year to pursue an acting career. She worked on stage productions of Romeo and Juliet and Arsenic and Old Lace while auditioning for film and television roles including the role of Anne Lindsay in Highlander: The Series. Her first acting role was in The Hidden Room and her first movie role was in Jungleground opposite Roddy Piper. Her first significant role, however, was on William Shatner's series TekWar. Doig played "Cowgirl", a specialist in tracking and obtaining information from the net. She said, "I walked out of the audition absolutely convinced I had blown it, and then my agent called to tell me I got the part. I was leaping around my parents' house and screaming at the top of my lungs. I knew then I'd chosen the right profession and I've never looked back since."

Doig landed the role of Tina Backus on the short-lived series CI5: The New Professionals in 1998. In 2000 Doig was in another Roddenberry series, Andromeda. She portrayed the artificial intelligence of the title ship in dual roles - as seen on viewscreens or holograms, and a separate android avatar called Rommie. In 2002, Doig was the female lead in the horror film Jason X. Doig also appeared in several episodes for the ninth and tenth seasons of Stargate SG-1 in a recurring role as Dr. Carolyn Lam. She also had a recurring role as college professor Wendy Paulson in the second season of The 4400 and most recently has had a recurring role as an alien physician in the remake of V.
