Katee Sackhoff unleashes her warrior spirit


Katee Sackhoff is finally living her childhood dream. As a child, she was an avid fan of Star Wars. She didn’t think she’d have a 15-year partnership with the Star Wars franchise. “I am pinching myself [to believe] that I’m here. If you had told little girl Katee that this would become her life at some point, she wouldn’t have believed you,” the American actor grins as she joins us in a Zoom conversation.

In her 25-year career, which spans several films and television series, Sackhoff has become synonymous with Bo-Katan Kryze from the world of Star Wars. Beginning by lending her voice to the character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) and Star Wars: Rebels (2014), the actor moved on to write the role in the live-action series The Mandalorian in 2019.

With the third season of the series now available in English and Hindi on Disney+ Hotstar, Sackhoff agrees that her warrior persona has had a remarkable journey. “Initially she followed the faction of the Mandalorians fighting for another [goal] of the powers that fought for peace. Bo always thought Mandalorians were warriors, while her sister Satine was a pacifist. But Bo has grown a lot over the years and that has a lot to do with reconciliation.”

In the final season, the character continues her search for the Darksaber. When asked about one aspect she would like to change about her character, the actor laughs: “I wish she took her helmet off more often, or even closed it full time.”
