'Battlestar Galactica': Starbuck speaks!

Posted on

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!
