According to Comic Book Resources on Friday, Katee Sackoff, known for her current role in the film "Oculus", spoke about her character portrayal in "Longmire" as well as her career that extended beyond the popular "Battlestar Galactica" series. At this point, "Longmire" is currently in production on its third season and the sci-fi celebrity joins another space co-star, Tricia Helfer, in a special motorcycle interest group known as Acting Outlaws.

Sackoff spoke about response to fans in regards to life beyond "Battlestar Galactica" and her role as Starbuck in the film. Apparently, she hadn't really had to contend with defending her stance or even working to keep the legacy of the modern drama of a science fiction show. Apparently, since that show she had continuous work without any kind of lag time between jobs. Sackhoff is seems to be fine with fans happy enough to have enjoyed the work she's done even though that time has come and gone.

The actress also talked about how since she's played the role of Starbuck that she's taken less of the stereotypical Hollywood roles for actresses and that Sackhoff seems to be leaning towards more of the "tough gal" characters. According to Sackhoff, "Well, you’ve really got to look for those parts. And I've been lucky enough that I’ve been working consistently since I was 17, and I’ve saved my money. So the decisions I make now aren't based on financial stability".

So one would gather that at one point in her life, Sackhoff basically couldn't afford to be picky about her roles in order to keep the lights on, but now due to her success she's able to pick and choose the roles that are rather difficult to find these days. "Longmire" is such an example of a role where she plays Vic Moretti, a five year former Philadelphia police officer in the homicide division and the recent addition to the cast. Moretti seems to have this playfulness between herself and Longmire that leads to a deeper connection that allows her to be his rather trusted deputy.

She also doesn't mind the more obscure roles in films such as "Oculus" which is currently in theaters now.
