'Battlestar Galactica': Starbuck speaks!

In anticipation of the April 4 season premiere of Battlestar Galactica, let us take a moment of silence to mourn the (impending) passing of this frakking genius show, as it begins its 20-episode march to its final episode and, we hope, Earth.

[ silence ]

Moment’s over! Now for some Starbuck-ian fun. Last week, I got the chance to catch some time with actress Katee Sackhoff, a.k.a. Capt. Kara Thrace, a.k.a. Starbuck, a.k.a. the most kick-ass female character since a certain teenage vampire slayer moved to Sunnydale (IMHO, anyhow). We holed up inside a spookily atmospheric warehouse as she took a breather from the photo shoot for this week’s EW feature story on Katee, and at this point, I should ask those who have not fully caught up with the show to calmly and quietly scroll to the next PopWatch item lest they endure even the whiff of a spoiler. This includes you, Mom and Dad. Ya gone?  Really? Promise? Okay. In part one of our three-part interview, I interrogated Sackhoff on what’s what with the new season, the apparent resurrection of her character and what it’s like for the cast now that so many of them are suddenly Cylons. Enjoy!

    i heart bsg! my boyfriend introduced it to my last winter on dvd, and i fell in l-o-v-e with the amazing writing, complex characters and top notch acting.
    so sad to lose a show after only discovering it!

    Buffy and Bristow paved the way for this character but nobody could embody her like Katee Sackhoff. She is one of the most ferociously, terrifyingly scary and visceral actors of her generation. It’s about time she got some feature spotlight! Well done!

    “Let’s go make babies!” Wow. She’s awesome. Cannot wait for the new season.
    In other news, Katee looks AMAZING with that long blond hair!

    I know it’s not very “Starbuck”, but she looks awesome with that hair…she should keep it!

  • Carli

    Only one question…why not the cover?

  • Daisy Buchanan

    Good Lord this is the best show on TV. (And she’s so pretty!)

  • Jen

    I worship Katee and Starbuck in the worst way. Why not the cover indeed? That photo shoot is GORGEOUS!

    I am so excited about the new season. I have gotten my share of friends into it by making them watch my DVDs. Now I can have a posse watch the final season with me.

    I love the new Starbuck tons more than the old (and the “dude” starbuck had been one of my favorite characters of all time), so her return’s exciting. That said, Starbuck “died” in the original series too. In fact, MOST of what happened in the original series has happened in the new one. It was just usually less thought out.
    I gotta say, I’m super psyched about this season’s “what makes one a human” theme that keeps popping up, especially since it means my tv crush Boomer might get more screentime.
