How did Katee Sackhoff feel about becoming Battlestar Galactica's rebooted Starbuck? And what made her so eager to take on the role in the BSG miniseries that premiered 10 years ago this week?

For Blastr's latest interview in our ongoing series of sci-fi origin stories,  we talked with Sackhoff to learn why she took the job -- and more! Click below to learn how she made Starbuck more than "just one of the guys," what makes her love villains, and why if she had a chance to go back and do it all over again, she thinks she wouldn't be quite as successful.

After you've done that, take a look at the first three installments of our ongoing origins series as Robert Kirkman shares what it was like when Walking Dead was born, Neil Gaiman explains the inspiration for Sandman and Samuel L. Jackson tells us how he discovered he was going to be Nick Fury.

And come back next week as we talk to Ronald D. Moore about his first Battlestar Galactica experience ... and more.

This clip, as well as all past and future episodes of BlastrTV, are also available in the Syfy Now app for iPhone and iPad, as well as Syfy's Xbox app and Roku Channel. If you're looking to view this interview in the Blastr app, you can access it in the video section.
