The second part of Katee Sackhoff’s Battlestar Galactica question and answer session (with BSG cast-mate Tricia Helfer) was put online and it contains an interesting mention of a scene from 24 season 8:
It’s interesting, because in the character that I play now on 24, it’s like I envy what I had too [as Starbuck on Battlestar Galactica]. Because now, my character steals the gun and then Freddie Prinze Jr. gets to shoot it! I was like, “Why did you have me steal the gun if I wasn’t gonna shoot the f**king thing?” (laughs)
Playing a computer analyst at CTU doesn’t exactly provide tons of opportunities for action scenes, but we’re hoping that Katee gets a chance to show what she’s capable of with a gun at least once during the season. With Mary Lynn Rajskub getting a chance to briefly become Rambo Chloe in a season 4 episode, it’s only fair.
