Subscribe To One Way The Flash Is Different From Katee Sackhoff's Other Projects Updates
The Flash is bringing in a big name in the sci-fi sphere to play a brand new baddie. Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar Galactica and Longmire fame joined the series to play the villainess Amunet Black, and the role has presented some challenges that Sackhoff never had to deal with for her previous projects. She spoke with CinemaBlend about what it's been like to tackle the role of an epic Flash villain, and she said this about getting ready to film as Amunet:
Katee Sackhoff went through minimal hair and makeup routines for her most notable previous roles, but her look as Amunet is a lot more complex. We don't even need to see her in action to understand why she was stuck in the makeup chair for a couple of hours. The very first look at her in all her Amunet glory revealed that a lot of work must go into making her look as amazingly villainous as possible. The lipstick alone looks complicated, not to mention to ponytail. No wonder Sackhoff had to go to work earlier than everybody else! The only person on the series with quite as intense a look might be Killer Frost.
We've known for a while that Amunet will be a recurring villain, so she'll appear for multiple episodes throughout Season 4. Katee Sackhoff will have more days in the makeup chair to prepare to hit the streets of Central City and make life very difficult for Team Flash and the Central City Police Department. That said, Katee Sackhoff went on in our chat to reveal that some changes have happened to Amunet's look since her first appearance, teasing this:
Apparently, Katee Sackhoff's hours in the makeup chair will be part of Amunet's character moving forward. All things considered, it makes sense that Amunet would spend the time to master that makeup and hair. All the best villains have the villain look down. Since her metahuman abilities involve manipulating metal rather than applying mascara and mousse with the wave of a hand, of course she has to spend a couple extra hours to prepare for her crime sprees. While we can be sure that Katee Sackhoff's performance would still be great even if she was in normal clothes and makeup on The Flash, something tells me Amunet might not be quite as menacing if she was simply dressed like Sackhoff's characters on Battlestar Galactica and Longmire.
Katee Sackhoff will make her Flash debut in tonight's episode, while will air at 8 p.m. ET on The CW. Be sure to tune in to see Amunet in action while Barry and Iris are attempting to enjoy their bachelor and bachelorette parties. You can also catch Sackhoff on Netflix when the sixth and final season of Longmire premieres on Netflix.
