One of our hottest woman in Sci-Fi, and forever a Geek favourite, Katee Sackhoff would love be in Star Wars or play Harley Quinn, and she’s prepared to give her first-born if she has to. In an interview with TotalFilm she expressed her desire to play a role, even if it is a rock, in one of the new Star Wars movies:
“I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn.”
“Star Wars meant everything to me growing up. Star Warswas, I mean, it was the first time I remember seeing three movies that all kind of went together. It was just an amazing final understanding of what a trilogy was…I was absolutely obsessed, I mean I wanted to be… The sad thing is, I never wanted to be Princess Leia, I always wanted to be Han Solo! [laughs] I’ve never really been drawn to these female roles, but I think that The Clone Wars was so much fun for me to play, I mean a warrior….If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies. I think that they’re fantastic, I think that he’s a great choice, and I’m excited to see what happens in that world.”
Sackhoff also talks about wanting to play Wonder Woman, and what it was like for her auditioning for the TV series,
“I’d love to play Wonder Woman. I remember auditioning for the Wonder Woman television show and being told that I wasn’t the Wonder Woman type, but if I wanted to play the best friend, I could audition for that. And I remember thinking to myself, ‘You obviously haven’t seen my work!”
They must not have seen her work! As you all know the role of Wonder Woman has been filled by Gal Gadot in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, and it doesn’t look like Sackhoff will ever get the chance. But who knows what will happen with Harley Quinn or Star Wars? Either one of those would be great if it happened.
