Sackhoff: Starbuck Still Troubled

Source: SciFi Wire

Katee Sackhoff, who stars as Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the SCI FI original series Battlestar Galactica, told SCI FI Wire that her character will continue to mature and evolve in the upcoming third season, but that her demons will still haunt her. As season three begins, Starbuck is living on the Cylon-occupied human settlement of New Caprica, where she's married to Anders (Michael Trucco) and dealing with her Cylon captor, Leoben (Callum Keith Rennie), who's got a shocking surprise for her.

"[Starbuck] has evolved, and she's starting to maybe believe in herself a little bit more, but she's still just as tormented by her past," Sackhoff said in an interview. "That's something that unless she sits down and deals with it, it's never going to get better. And it is something that continues to hold her back."

Sackhoff added: "So we've seen her try and deal with things in her past and try and face situations head-on now. ... She's definitely becoming more of a stronger person [in one sense], but she's even more messed up than she was in the beginning. I guess every character kind of is. But Kara is a character who constantly gets kicked down when she tries to improve her life. Usually, she's [behind] her own demise or will be, inevitably, I think." Battlestar Galactica launches its third season with a two-hour premiere on Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
