We left Mandalorian Bo-Katan – the character she has been playing since 2012, when she began voicing her in the animated series The Clone Wars and to which he then lent his face from 2020 on The Mandalorian – determined to recapture the dark sword to restore honor to the Kryze clan and bring Mandalore – her home planet – back into vogue after the ravages of war.

Bo-Katan will give Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) – the current wielder of the dark sword – a hard time as they, together with the other Mandalorians, set out to revive the legend of their world. “Bo-Katan will show a new side of herself to the audience, in the third season we will see her in a different light” anticipa Sackhoff.

For the past three decades, Katee Sackhoff has been one of the most popular sci-fi leading ladies on television. Since 2004 – the year in which she debuted in the role of Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica – to the dubbing of Bo-Katan in The Clone Wars e Rebels, passing through Another Life. Was it limiting for you to be constantly associated with the genre of science fiction throughout your career?

I’m the one who wanted to be so connected to this world. There are those who have tried to dissuade me from entering this sector. When I arrived in Los Angeles at eighteen, the only roles they gave me were those of the ditzy blonde. But I wanted to be seen differently,recalls Katee Sackhoff. Is the sci-fi genre finally catching up with the times to embrace more female protagonists?

As a child, I dreamed that when I grew up I would be like Bruce Willis in Die Hard, because there were no female role models in action films that I could look up to,” says Sackhoff. His refuge was science fiction and fantasy stories: “In these worlds there were strong and courageous heroines, because these were places that weren’t real – so everything was allowed, even seeing females in roles usually associated with males,”explains the actress.

Today finally the representation in every kind of story is changing for the better, and I’m really happy that more and more people can empathize with authentic representations in the stories that follow,” says Sackhoff, who adds: “There’s still a lot of work to do, that’s clear, and we all have to work hard so that every person can see themselves again on screen”.
