Katee Sackhoff discusses Starbuck’s ultimate fate with the National Ledger:
[Sackhoff] says if she has her way, her wild and fierce character, Starbuck, will go out in a blaze of glory in the final season of "Battlestar."
"I keep telling them, 'Kill me again,'" says Sackhoff, whose character apparently died at the end of last season but will be mysteriously back when the Peabody Award-winning drama returns mid-season for its own swan song.
The actress earned a Saturn Award for her portrayal of the intense, worlds-weary fighter pilot, Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, on "BG." After all these years of playing her, Sackhoff feels adamantly that her character just wouldn't fit with a happy ending. "That's just who she is. She's happy and comfortable with her sadness. She's had such a hard life, whenever she is happy it doesn't feel good to her. And she's so scared she's going to lose it she pushes it away before it can go anywhere. It's sad, but at least she knows who she is." Sackhoff says she's let her wishes be known to "Battlestar Galactica" executive producer David Eick. "In the last episode, I want them to have me sacrifice myself for everyone, because the only way this woman would be happy is if she was gone when there was nothing else to fight for. That's the only thing that would have this woman be at peace."
Artist & Livejournalist Grant Gould (gdg) has just shared his nice collection of Starbuck art. The rest of Grant's art is also posted at this site - including his viper pilot pinup cards.
