One look at Katee Sackhoff’s Starbuck and fans everywhere forgot all about that other guy who played the character. Sackhoff’s rough and ready portrayal of hotshot pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace was stealing scenes on the critically acclaimed Battlestar Galactica from her first episode, turning heads and winning a Saturn award along the way.
The actress known for fighting evil robots on Galactica became one herself when she played the villain in NBC’s update of the classic Bionic Woman series. Her following TV credits include a 4 episode turn on Nip/Tuck, as “Teddy Rowe”, a 3 episode stint on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, as “Detective Frankie Reed”, and starring as a series regular on 24, as “Dana Walsh.”
Sackhoff has been sharpening her vocal cords and comedic chops on shows like The SuperHero Squad Show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and most recently lent her voice to the ever-humorous Robot Chicken.
She can also be seen on USA’s western drama Longmire, and you’ll find Sackhoff on the big screen playing “Dahl” along side Karl Urban and Vin Diesel in the newest Chronicles of Riddick installment.
Sackhoff can currently be seen on the hit show, The Mandalorian.
