Katee Sackhoff in Battlestar Galactica: Ronald D. Moore, the creator of the popular 2004 reboot of the 1970s space saga, said he decided to make Starbuck a woman in order to skirt any Han Solo-esque associations. ”Making Starbuck a woman was a way of avoiding what I felt would be ’rogue pilot with a heart of gold’ cliche.” Moore also said he thought Kara Thrace allowed him to break new narrative ground. “The whole notion of women in the [U.S.] military is a relatively new idea,” he said. Women’s studies professor Sue Brennan, who used Battlestar Galactica for a course called “Gender, Race and Sexuality in Pop Culture” at Ohio State University, told Wired the swap was a controversial one. ”There was all this outrage: ‘How dare they change this very masculine renegade character. How can they translate Starbuck into a female character?‘ But the show has clearly proven that they can. Kara Thrace’s competence is maybe questioned as far as her disregard for authority but never because of her gender.” Sackhoff’s cigar-chomping, hard-drinking Starbuck has been hailed as one of the most popular and layered TV characters of the early aughts.
We’ve updated the Katee Sackhoff Web Gallery with some missing event photos from this last month Katee attended.

Katee Sackhoff, whose credits include “Oculus,” “Riddick” and “Battlestar Galactica,” is to star in the supernatural horror film “Don’t Knock Twice,” directed by Caradog James and being sold in Cannes by Content Media.
In the vein of “Candyman” meets “The Ring,” “Don’t Knock Twice” is based on an urban legend. To save her estranged daughter, a guilt-ridden mother must uncover the terrifying truth behind the urban legend of a vengeful, demonic witch.
James (“The Machine,” “Little White Lies”) is directing “Don’t Knock Twice” from a script by Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, who co-wrote “Howl.”
The film is being produced by Red & Black Films’ John Giwa-Amu (“The Machine,” “The Call Up”) and Seymour Films’ Claire Moorsom. Content’s president of film, Jamie Carmichael, serves as executive producer. Principal photography will commence in July in the U.K. “Don’t Knock” Twice is financed by Altara, Ffilm Cymru Wales and Content Media.
f you happen to be a die-hard fan of Battlestar Galactica — well, the phenomenally popular 2004 reimagining of the classic sci-fi television series, that is — and live in Arizona, its safe to say you’re anxiously counting the hours until Memorial Day weekend rolls around.
That’s no frakkin’ hyperbole, since that’s the date of this year’s Phoenix Comicon and the weekend you’ll get to meet a few of the stars of the Battlestar Galactica revivial. And, as of this morning, that will include actress Katee Sackhoff.
Comicon’s staff announced this morning online that the actress who wasted scores of Cylons on the show as Viper pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace will appear at a special guest at this year’s event, which is scheduled to take place from Thursday, May 27, to Sunday, May 31, at the Phoenix Convention Center.
Organizers had previously announced that Sackhoff’s fellow Battlestar cast-members Mary McDonnell, who played President Laura Roslin, and noted character actor Edward James Olmos (a.k.a. Admiral William Adama) will also appear at Phoenix Comicon 2015.
For those who aren’t particularly familiair with the critically lauded BSG revival that aired from 2005 until 2009 on cable channel now known as Syfy, Thrace was one of the show’s more prominent — and complex — characters. An outspoken and rebelious hellraiser who oftern butted heads with other characters when she wasn’t serving as a badass pilot of the show’s trademark Viper starfighters (who Sackhoff stated was “the best pilot…EVER”), Thrace was quite the fearless warrior. Hell, she even faced down the grim reaper and (spoiler alert) returned from the dead after getting offed
Although no details concerning any potential Q&A sessions with Thrace or her BSG co-stars has been revealed by Comicon organizers as of this writing, its almost certain that all three will team up for a panel devoted to the show.

you’ve seen the tweets and photos this last couple of week’s but now we have official news of Katee joining the cast of “Girl Flu.”
EXCLUSIVE: Katee Sackhoff has been set to join Jade Pettyjohn, Jeremy Sisto, Heather Matarazzo, Judy Reyes and Isaiah Mustafa in the indie dramedy Girl Flu. Directed by Dorie Barton, Girl Flu focuses on Bird (Pettyjohn), a 12-year-old in crisis. After moving from the San Fernando Valley to Echo Park, the young girl experiences the worst week of her life as she: gets her first period; and is abandoned by her immature and stoner mother (Sackhoff) while learning she will never be able to go back home to the Valley. The film is currently in production in Los Angeles and produced by David K. Wilson and Jay Lowi through their Free Chicken Films production banner. Rich Hull and Paul Schiff are executive producing. Katherine Brown is co-producer.
Longmire fans’ dedication to saving their show has paid off. Following several weeks of negotiations, I’ve learned that Netflix has closed a deal for a 10-episode fourth season of the drama series to premiere in 2015 on Netflix’s platforms in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The news comes less than three months after LongmirNetflix Logoe‘s surprise cancellation by A&E after three seasons. It triggered one of the biggest outpourings of fan support ever for an axed TV series. The cast of the show, led by Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff, is under deals for Season 4. That doesn’t necessarily mean that absolutely everyone will return — Season 3 ended in a cliffhanger, with characters’ lives in the balance, and a hear an exit is likely. More about the plot of Season 4 in a moment.
