Who is Katee Sackhoff?

The Net Worth of Katee Sackhoff

How rich is Katee Sackhoff? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is at $4 million, earned through a successful career in acting. Aside from her television work, she’s also had lead roles in films and has also tried her hand at voice acting. As she continues her career, it is expected that her net worth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Acting Beginnings

While Katee was born in Portland, she grew up with a brother in nearby St. Helens. Her mother worked as a teacher while her father was a land developer. She eventually attended Sunset High School, during which time she was planning to pursue a career in swimming; however, a knee injury stopped her from continuing the sport. She then decided to start practicing yoga, and subsequently found an interest in acting. She matriculated from Sunset High in 1998.

She had her first acting opportunity in the Lifetime original movie entitled “Fifteen and Pregnant”, in which she played a teenager with a baby. This opportunity would convince her to move to Hollywood after high school to pursue a career in acting. She eventually got a recurring role in the MTV show “Undressed”, then a supporting role in “The Education of Max Bickford”. She made her major film debut in “My First Mister”, and was then cast in the 2002 slasher film “Halloween: Resurrection”.

Battlestar Galactica and Prominence

Sackhoff would have her most notable role to date in the mini-series “Battletar Galactica”, which eventually generated enough demand for a follow-up television series. For her performance as Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, she would win a Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television partly as the series was noted for the development the writers made in terms of her character. After the end of the series, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and underwent surgery to remove her thyroid, but did not need any further radiation treatment, and by 2009 the sickness was already in remission.

She soon returned to acting, in the supernatural film “White Noise: the Light”, followed by another Lifetime film entitled “How I Married My High School Crush”. Aside from her lead and supporting roles, she has also made guest appearances in various popular television shows, including “Cold Case”, “Law & Order”, and “ER”. She has also tried her hand at voice acting work, for the video game “Halo 3”, and for the animated films “Spider-Man: Edge of Time”, and “Batman: Year One”. During the fifth season of the show “Nip/Tuck”, she was subsequently cast in the role of Dr. Theodora Rowe, but was replaced the following season due to scheduling conflicts.

In 2012, she became the lead of the Netflix show entitled “Longmire” opposite Robert Taylor in the title role, which is based on the “Walt Longmire Mysteries” series of novels written by Craig Johnson, and ran for five years.

Also in 2012 she made a big screen appearance in the film “Riddick”, playing the mercenary Dahl, and later she had a voice role in the video game “Call of Duty: Black Ops III”, which she also did motion work for. One of her most recent projects is the CW series “The Flash” in which she plays the recurring role of Amunet/Blacksmith.

Personal Life

For her personal life, it is known that Sackhoff has been dating fellow actor Karl Urban since 2014.

1I was addicted to the original "Star Trek" when I was growing up, because of my dad. We grew up in St. Helens, Oregon and we weren't allowed to watch a lot of TV. I don't think we even had more than three channels, so it was basically watch Dynasty (1981) with my mom, watch Star Trek (1966) with my dad, or watch the mating rituals of beavers on OPB [Oregon Public Broadcasting]. So my brother and I watched "Star Trek".
