‘Galactica’ Actress Needs Her Starbucks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Katee Sackhoff plays an out of this world character on Battlestar Galactica, but she’s amazed that she gets recognized the most at one of the most down-to-Earth places – Starbucks.

This is probably due to the fact that Sackhoff plays a character named Starbuck on the show and, while she hasn’t gotten any free coffee out of the gig, she has gotten a lot of attention.

She says baristas instantly recognize her and often write her character’s name on her order without even letting on that they know who she is.

For example, Sackhoff says “I’ll hear a ‘Iced latte for Starbuck’ and realize it’s me.”

But it’s not just the mocha makers who know who she is – average java Joes notice her too.

Says Sackhoff: “I was in line the other day and I heard a guy on his phone to his friend being like ‘Dude, I’m behind Starbuck at Starbucks.’ I eventually went up to him at the sugar stand and was like ‘Hey dude’ and we talked.”

The third season of Battlestar Galactica starts Friday (Oct. 6) on the Sci Fi Channel.
