Katee Sackhoff: “so much fun to work with” Kiefer Sutherland

You had a nice run on the series 24. What was it like working on that show and working with Kiefer Sutherland?
It was great working on that show. 24 came at a perfect time for me because of health reasons, I needed to stay in Los Angeles and it came at a great time as well because after Battlestar, I didn’t have the recognition that I needed as far as my face in households on a regular basis on network television.

Cable didn’t provide that at the time; we were 5 years before other networks were starting to have massive success. Battlestar was the first show on a cable provider that actually broke ground. We were five years too early to be recognized by any awards, but we were the best show on television for 6 years in my opinion and I think there are a lot of people that would agree with that.

Working with Kiefer was amazing and fantastic. He’s so much fun to work with on a daily basis and do things with because he gives you everything he’s got.

Were you ever stressed out on the set of 24?
Only the night shoot stuff. If you think about it, you are doing a show that takes place in 24 hours; six of those hours are completely at night. So, there were some nights where you literally worked yourself into a night shooting schedule for about four weeks and you were tired.
