‘Battlestar’ Actress Gets Fanmail From High School Pals

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff is using fanmail to connect with her old high school buddies.

Sackhoff plays the outspoken, impulsive Starbuck on the hit Sci-Fi series, and says that over the years, old high school friends have tried to contact her via Battlestar fanmail, which is often surprising.

She explains, “I’ll get mail from people I went to high school with [in Oregon] saying, ‘Hi, Katee. We still live in the same house. You should come by sometime.’ It’s pretty funny that old friends of mine try to get a hold of me through my publicist. I’m like, ‘Just call my parents, you idiots!’”

Besides fanmail from her old school pals, Sackhoff is used to receiving support from various types of fans – not just sci- fi geeks.

She says, “Battlestar Galactica is a show that relies on reality and human conditions. The sci-fi part of it is just a setting, not the entire show, so anyone can relate.”

The fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica is now airing Fridays on Sci-Fi.
