Prior to "Battlestar," Sackhoff generally played stereotypical blonde roles in a variety of made-for-television movies, including her debut in the telepic "Fifteen and Pregnant" and feature films like "My First Mister" and "Halloween: Resurrection" But it was her spirited performance as the conflicted and complex Starbuck that made her a pop-culture icon.
