So far, she has won bookend Genie Awards for both "Best Actress" in In Praise of Older Women (1978) and "Supporting Actress" in We All Fall Down (2000). Helen has always courted controversy, none more so than for her sexually-charged role in the afore-mentioned film, In Praise of Older Women (1978), and for her later performance in Desert Hearts (1985), which featured a torrid lesbian love scene that is still considered one of the most erotic in movie history.

Helen Shaver in Der Herrscher des Central Parks (1985)

In Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996), her character, Kate 'White' Reilly, is supposed to be a former Playboy centerfold model for October 1974. The actual Playmate for October 1974 was Ester Cordet, a dark-skinned black-haired Panamanian whose appearance is very much different from the blonde Ms. Shaver's.
