Saturday Scream Queen: Katee Sackhoff

Born in 1980, actress Katee Sackhoff was a rising television actress with a handful of roles to her name when she shot to sci-fi stardom as the cigar-chomping fighter pilot Starbuck in the remake of "Battlestar Galactica" on the Sci-Fi/Syfy Channel. She played Starbuck for four seasons.

However, her first major role in a television series was in the short-lived horror anthology series "The Fearing Mind". Along the way, Sackhoff has also appeared in a number of horror movies, including the misbegotten "Halloween: Resurrection" and "White Noise 2: The Light".

Sackhoff is currently filming a western series for television, as well as working on three movies in varying stages of production, two of which are horror films: "The Haunting in Georgia" (for which a sequel is already in the works, even before the first one is through post-production) and "Growl", with both tentatively slated for release in 2012.


  1. Oh boy did she ever catch my eye in Halloween Resurrection - smoking hot, and sexy saucy too! Stupid beheading Michael Myers! As a bygone fan of the original, I could never get into the new BSG. But I did enjoy watching Ms. Sackhoff and Dirk Benedict take potshots at each other throughout the new show's run! Fabulous choice, Mr. M!

  2. She also showed up rather oddly, but beautifully in the Big Bang Theory recently as Howard's fantasy girl sitting with him in the bathtub! Howard and the BBT gang, being the sci-fi fanboys would naturally pick her from her role as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica.
