At the age of six, Katee started participating in
dance classes as well as drama classes. She later
went on to star in many of her high school's productions.
Taking her acting a step further, Katee made her way
to the small screen when she took on the role of a
teenage mother in the Lifetime original movie Fifteen
and Pregnant with Kirsten Dunst. She later followed
up with the role of Mary in the USA original movie
Hefner: Unauthorized. In 2000, Katee appeared as a
full-fledged cast member of the Fox Family Channel
series The Fearing Mind, in which she played Lenore,
the daughter of horror author Bill Fearing. In 2001,
Katee won the role of Jenna Danzig in the eighth movie
of the Halloween series, Halloween: Resurrection.
Katee also successfully landed the role of Nell Bickford
on the CBS series The Education of Max Bickford, in
which she played the daughter of the title character,
played by Richard Dreyfuss. Winning her breaktrough
role as the tough-talking Starbuck on the Sci-Fi Channel
miniseries “Battlestar Galactica” (2003)
wasn’t exactly easy at the start for Katee Sackhoff.
Although the new incarnation of “Galactica”
was met with a fair amount of skepticism when it debuted,
new and old fans alike have come to embrace the show
as one of the best sci-fi shows to grace the airwaves,
thanks in no small part to Sackhoff, who managed to
be both tough and vulnerable, bringing an extra dimension
to a critical character in the thrilling space saga.
Gilles Nuytens: You
have a contract for 5 years with Galactica I believe,
but there are rumors about you not coming back in
season 4. I assume that is false rumor?
Katee Sackhoff: I cannot answer that
question due to confidentiality. All I can say is
that when I read ep. 16. I was shocked to say the
Nuytens: You had
long hair during all your life but you had to cut
it for the show, how did you react when you learned
that you had to cut it and how was it to get it back,
even if it was a wig, in the last episode of season
Katee Sackhoff: I know this sounds
so ridiculous... but I cried when they cut it. Grace
and I were sharing a room at boot camp and I got up
in the middle of the night to see if I could still
put it back in these twisty bobby pin things I used
to do. I barely could with so much hairspray I couldn't
stand too close to flame! Lol It was great to have
it back for a little while in season 2 and 3. All
I will say is I will never cut it again for Battlestar...
Gilles Nuytens: Are
you happy with the character developement of Starbuck
Katee Sackhoff: I'm thrilled with
my character. However I did feel under used in season
3. I kept getting phone calls from people asking if
the producers were mad at me. Trust me at one point
my mind went to that assumption.
Gilles Nuytens: Season
3 is very dark, at least from what we have seen so
far, do you already know what direction the show is
going to take next year?
Katee Sackhoff: I have not given
Battlestar a thought for awhile. Focusing on feature
Gilles Nuytens: You
said in another interview that you would love to play
as yourself in "The Office", have you been
approached about it since then?
Katee Sackhoff: No. Would still love
to. I'm such a fan of the show.
Gilles Nuytens: Kara
has been drawing mysterious symbols we can see in
"The Eye Of Jupiter", some believe she is
the choosen one or even one of the Final Five! What
are your feelings about it?
Katee Sackhoff: I'd like to say I
have some feelings about it. I love where the writers
have taken Kara and I trust they have done what's
right and most interesting for the show.
Gilles Nuytens: After
3 seasons, has the show changed your life in any way?
Katee Sackhoff: Not really. I had
a guy break into my house and had to move. Does that
count. That's a change for the bad though.
Gilles Nuytens: We
have seen a very complicated relationship between
the "anders-kara-lee-dualla" characters,
is that a storyline you enjoyed doing because of all
the various 'love triangles'?
Katee Sackhoff: I actually hate the
triangle. I think it's ridiculous. I wish she would
just be with one of them and call it a day. Haha.
But then that wouldn't be dramatic now would it.
Nuytens: These characters
don't seem to know exactly what they want, they break
up, they get back together, they fight and the next
minute they kiss, is that going to be solved once
for all anytime soon?
Katee Sackhoff: Again I say Ridiculous...
Gilles Nuytens: You
watched a lot of Star Trek during your school years,
are you still fan of the franchise?
Katee Sackhoff: I haven't watched
Star trek in Years. Sorry!
Gilles Nuytens: Outside
of Galactica and "White Noise 2", what have
you worked on recently?
Katee Sackhoff: I am doing a movie
called "Be careful what you wish for".
For Lifetime channel. I have 2 or 3 big jobs I don't
want to jinx and can't tell you about yet. Probably
Gilles Nuytens: I
think you are a fan of the Indiana Jones movies and
you mentionned once that you would love to play in
a new one, now that there are plans for a fourth movie,
have you been approached at all?
Katee Sackhoff: NOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Gilles Nuytens: Since
that incident with Dirk Benedict, you are not really
as we can say in good terms with him, have you solved
the problem with him finally? If not, would you like
Katee Sackhoff: I have not one problem
with Dirk Benedict.
Gilles Nuytens: What
was the funniest situation you found yourself in during
the shooting of Galactica?
Katee Sackhoff: Every sex scene is
always without a doubt terribly funny.
Gilles Nuytens: With
one word for each, how would you describe each of
your co-stars from Galactica?
Michael H. - Free spirit
Nicki- Sweetest thing ever. (oops more than
Michael T- Under-rated
Callum- Most intrigueing man I've ever met.
(There I go again sorry.)
Gilles Nuytens: If
you were not an actress, what would you have liked
Katee Sackhoff: Living in Mexico
taking rich people scuba diving.
