“I’ve never worked on something with a budget this big,” says Katee Sackhoff, comparing Mandalorin’s catering budget to Battlestar Galactica’s entire budget.
Katee Sackhoff said that only the catering budget for the “Star Wars” spinoff show consumes the complete budget of “Battlestar Galactica.”
Sackoff, who plays the royal Bo-Katan Kryze in The Mandalorian, shared this with the director of “Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett” Bryce Dallas Howard, during Katee’s podcast “Blah Blah Blah.”
She told Bryce Dallas that “I’ve never worked on something with a budget this big,” Sackhoff said. “Our catering budget is probably the entire budget of ‘Battlestar Galactica.’ Granted, that was 20 years ago.”

The “Battlestar Galactica,” alum who also played the role of pilot Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, further added that she became used to shooting television episodes in a very limited time frame.
“Most episodes of television that I am used to shoot in eight days. It is so fast and you [only] get two to three takes — and that’s it,” Sackhoff said in the episode released Wednesday. “They used to joke and call me the ‘One Take Wonder,’ because I would know exactly what I was gonna do. I would have it all planned, I would know the story. And yes, I would fly by the seat of my pants inside that box, but I knew I had one or two takes to get it perfect and that was it. From every angle, mind you.”
Katee Sackhoff, the voice behind the character “The Clone Wars,” emphasized Howard’s talent at taking benefit of the additional leisurely production timeline.
“The amount of takes you do is like my bread and butter. I think that we got to Take 3 and I was convinced that was it because that’s my experience. We [once] did 38 takes of one scene. That is legitimately the opposite of what I’m used to … I absolutely love it because it gives the ability to find different things inside what I thought,” she said. “And then sometimes, you get so over it, that you give a different performance. You’re like, ‘Oh my God, I didn’t expect that!’ That wouldn’t have come without me completely abandoning everything that I had already done or thought I knew.”
