Sackhoff on the flak she's gotten for her strong, sexy Starbuck: Frack it
By MELANIE McFARLAND
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER TELEVISION CRITIC
If you've never met Katee Sackhoff, the woman who brings "Battlestar Galactica's" Capt. Kara Thrace (aka Starbuck) to life, you probably picture her as some kind of amazon, 6 feet tall and ready to rumble.
Away from the set, the Northwest native has a delicate physique, a bright smile and, when she dropped by a TV critics' cocktail party last week, favors fashion more in the style of Audrey Hepburn than her alter-ego's flight suits.
We chatted with her about what it means to be Starbuck, how fans and the guy who previously held the role have reacted, and what's in store for her character as "Battlestar Galactica," airing Friday nights at 10 on Sci Fi, flies toward the end of its second season. (Please be aware that this Q&A contains minor spoilage.)
