She also wants to play Harley Quinn...
In an interview with Total Film, Katee Sackhoff spoke on her desire to play several different roles in sci-fi and comic book movies. Here are highlights:
On possibly playing Harley Quinn: "I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn."
On auditioning for Wonder Woman in David E. Kelly's pilot in 2011: "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!"
On appearing in Star Wars: "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."
