Planet Comicon Kansas City, the largest and longest-running comic book convention and pop culture event in the region, is thrilled to announce the addition of Katee Sackhoff to our 20th anniversary lineup of celebrity guests. Sackhoff is best known for playing Lieutenant Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in Battlestar Galactica. Her recent credits include The Flash and Longmire. Katee will be at Planet Comicon on Saturday and Sunday.
Sackhoff’s rough and ready portrayal of hotshot pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace was stealing scenes on the critically acclaimed Battlestar Galactica from her first episode, turning heads and winning a Saturn award along the way. The actress known for fighting evil robots on BSG became one herself when she played the villain in NBC’s update of the classic Bionic Woman series. Her following TV credits include a four-episode turn on Nip/Tuck as Teddy Rowe, a three-episode stint on CSI as Detective Frankie Reed, and starring as a regular on the eighth season of 24 as Dana Walsh and the A&E/Netflix series Longmire as Victoria ‘Vic’ Moretti.
Sackhoff has also been sharpening her vocal talents on shows like The Super Hero Squad Show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, and recently lent her voice to Comedy Central’s ever-humorous and irreverent Robot Chicken, most notably as Bitch Puddin’.
