Katee Sackhoff, most of the world’s pretend girlfriend, is vying for a role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Batman film as well as looking to land a role in Star Wars: Episode VII and a chance to play Wonder Woman. Big dreams indeed Sackhoff!
In a recent interview with Total Film, she said,
“I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn.”
Like most of us, Star Wars has played a huge part in our lives growing up. Sackhoff spoke about how much the franchise means to her and how she would LOVE a role in the reboot.
“Star Wars meant everything to me growing up. Star Wars was, I mean, it was the first time I remember seeing three movies that all kind of went together. It was just an amazing final understanding of what a trilogy was…I was absolutely obsessed, I mean I wanted to be… The sad thing is, I never wanted to be Princess Leia, I always wanted to be Han Solo! [laughs] I’ve never really been drawn to these female roles, but I think that The Clone Wars was so much fun for me to play, I mean a warrior….If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies. I think that they’re fantastic, I think that he’s a great choice, and I’m excited to see what happens in that world.”
Sackhoff later mentioned her desire to play Wonder Woman and how she had auditioned for the part back in 2011 in David E. Kelly’s failed pilot.
“I’d love to play Wonder Woman. I remember auditioning for the Wonder Woman television show and being told that I wasn’t the Wonder Woman type, but if I wanted to play the best friend, I could audition for that. And I remember thinking to myself, ‘You obviously haven’t seen my work!”
