Sackhoff has had roles in films such as Halloween: Resurrection, and in television, including the series The Education of Max Bickford and guest appearances on American programs such as ER and Cold Case. She plays the female lead in the action/scifi movie The Last Sentinel, the psychological thriller White Noise: The Light, and the Lifetime movie Once Upon a Dream.
In Battlestar Galactica, she was cast as Kara "Starbuck" Thrace, a Captain in the Colonial Fleet. In the original Battlestar Galactica, the Starbuck character was a man, portrayed by Dirk Benedict. Creator Ronald D. Moore's decision to change the character's gender for the contemporary remake was controversial with fans of the original series.
