A queer geek icon thanks to her role as cocky fighter pilot Starbuck on the cult Syfy series Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff is still kicking ass, now as Vic, a Wyoming deputy, on the A&E western Longmire, which returns May 27 for a second season. Back to deep space this fall in the action flick Riddick, the 33-year-old motorcyclist opens up about her dream to do rom-coms and dress like a hooker...

... Q: You’ve played tough, butch gals in Battlestar, Bionic Woman, 24, Longmire, and the upcoming Riddick. Is America not ready to see you all dolled up in a rom-com?

Katee Sackhoff: "I joke all the time that I needed to secure an audience first before going in a completely different direction. Playing tough characters just comes easy for me. It’s not who I am in real life, so I love going to work and pretending to be something I’m not. I love all the action and confidence. But when I finally go do a rom-com, I hope my fans will support me."

Q: Do you get jealous when you watch Katherine Heigl movies?

Katee Sackhoff: "I do! It’s crazy. My fiancĂ© actually did a movie with Katherine, and every night he came home from work I’d be like, “I’m dying to do a romantic comedy!” I read YA novels constantly, so I really want to be in a young adult rom-com, but I worry that I’m aging into the parent role, which is a little scary..."

Longmire season two premieres Monday, May 27, 2013 on A&E TV at 10/9C. CLICK HERE TO VIEW A VIDEO SNEAK PEEK OF 'UNQUIET MIND'
