Early Life and Education

Katee Sackhoff, now at the age of 44, was born on April 8, 1980, in Portland, Oregon. Raised alongside her brother Erick by her mother Mary. Her mother, Mary, held the role of an English-as-second-language (ESL) program coordinator, while her father, Dennis, was involved in land development.

Completing her education at Sunset High School in Beaverton in 1998, Sackhoff initially aimed for a career in swimming. However, an injury to her right knee during high school shifted her focus. She turned to yoga, a practice she still engages in today, and developed an interest in acting.

Personal Life

Between 2014 and 2018, Sackhoff maintained a relationship with New Zealand actor Karl Urban. However, in 2018, while in Vancouver, British Columbia, she crossed paths with actor Robin Gadsby. The couple tied the knot in early October 2021 and now share a daughter.


Upon reaching 17 years old, Sackhoff relocated to Los Angeles to pursue her acting aspirations. Her introduction to the industry came through a role in the Lifetime movie Fifteen and Pregnant, starring alongside Kirsten Dunst.

This initial experience ignited her passion for acting, prompting her to venture into Hollywood after completing high school.

Early in her career, she landed recurring roles in MTV’s Undressed as Annie and in The Education of Max Bickford as Nell Bickford. Transitioning to the silver screen, she made her debut in My First Mister before portraying Jenna “Jen” Danzig in Halloween: Resurrection.

However, it was her portrayal of Kara “Starbuck” Thrace in the miniseries and subsequent TV series Battlestar Galactica that propelled Sackhoff to fame.

Her performance earned her the prestigious Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television in 2006. The depth she brought to the character intrigued the writers, leading to further exploration of Starbuck’s complexities.

Executive producer Ron Moore commended Sackhoff’s magnetic presence, while producer David Eick highlighted her ability to convey vulnerability and strength simultaneously, allowing the character to evolve dynamically.

Drawing inspiration from Linda Hamilton‘s portrayal of Sarah Connor in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sackhoff emphasized the importance of embodying both physical prowess and emotional depth in her role as Starbuck.

However, amidst her rising career, Sackhoff faced a personal challenge when diagnosed with thyroid cancer towards the end of filming Battlestar Galactica. Despite this setback, she underwent successful surgery and achieved remission by February 2009, requiring no further radiation treatments.

In 2007, Sackhoff embraced the role of the malevolent cyborg Sarah Corvus in the NBC series Bionic Woman, garnering further acclaim for her ability to balance strength with vulnerability.

Beyond television, she showcased her versatility in films like the action/sci-fi The Last Sentinel and the supernatural thriller White Noise: The Light.
