Katee Sackhoff, Actress
Katee Sackhoff is known to all Battlestar Galactica fans as their beloved Starbuck! Katee and the gang returned to TV this past Friday (read TwoCents review of the premiere) to start off this final season of the show.
Katee was able to find some time to speak with our Head Writer, Jon Gus, recently and here are Katee's Two Cents & Five Answers. Enjoy.
TwoCents: Hi Katee. Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with us this morning.
TwoCents: Ron Moore (show creator) has said that he’s not interested in doing a Battlestar feature film. Do you think you could change his mind and if so would you be interested in doing that film?
Katee Sackhoff: No, I wouldn’t want to change his mind. I think he’s right.
TC: Okay, there’s nothing…
KS: Yeah, you know, he said it best at the PCA (Paley Festival), I don’t know if you were there but or got that but what he said was that what would end up happening is that you would have to focus on, you know, one or two characters and, you know, what’s so brilliant is that it's been a four year movie and the time to tell these stories about each person individually and really have you become invested in those characters and to do a two hour movie or a one and a half hour movie I think takes away from that what we’ve been able to do for so long, you know, it really does take away. I mean, I don’t, you know, how do you pick which two characters and when you pick those two characters are you going to flip off the other 17 main characters on the show, like how do you define, you know, what to do.
I think he’s right, you know, plus at the same time, you know, as a performer -- excuse me, sorry, sorry, I’m downstairs in the lobby here -- I think that, you know, I don’t know, plus like whatever I was going to say is that when I even actually am done with the show, I’m done with the show. I - you know, as much as I love the job or don’t love the job the last thing I want to do is come back and do it again, when I’ve already done it. Granted, you know, talk to me in five years if I haven’t worked. We'll see. But, you know, as of right now I have no desire to do it - to do a movie.
