Starbuck

Just wanted to save this quote from Katee Sackhoff that really has some great insight into the character of Starbuck:

Katee Sackhoff discusses Starbuck’s ultimate fate with the National Ledger:

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.”
