BSGM: Riding a motorcycle is still seen by many as a predominantly male pastime, as fervent bikers how did you get to be bike-curious?
Katee: I’ve always been an adrenalin junky of sorts… although the irony is that I’m pretty much scared of my own shadow!
I always dated guys who rode because I was so intimidated with the whole weight of the bike and wanted to still “ride” if you will, because I enjoyed the freedom of it. Then when Tricia and I found out her husband and my fiancé actually knew each other and both rode, we challenged each other to get our licenses.
BSGM: What, to you personally, has been the most rewarding thing about starting the Acting Outlaws?
Katee: The comradery of it all, the humbling feeling of people coming together for the common good. Taking time out to help those you’ve never met. It’s really a beautiful thing. To me, there’s no true wholeness to this life we get if you only live for yourself.

Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer are back for another Acting Outlaws charity calendar. With their ‘semi’-naked calendar they hope to raise funds for their Acting Outlaws charity which raises awareness for all sorts of social issues. One is the aftermath of the BP oil spill. Their preferred method of raising attention is through charity bike rides.
Well, another year has past so lets summarize what the two sci-fi actresses have been up to.
Katee Sackhoff has of course graced us with another season of Longmire in which she plays the rather towny sheriff’s deputy ‘Vic’ Moretti. Last August we also saw her in the latest Riddick movie as the conflicted lesbian bounty hunter Stahl. Rumors persisted on the internet that she had been given a role in the latest Star Wars movie, but she debunked these. Instead she hinted at another big project.
Tricia Helfer continues her career of making guest appearances on TV-shows, the latest of which was for Community. She also has several noteworthy voice-acting roles such as for StarCraft 2 and Ultimate Spiderman. With the apparent discontinuation of Tron Uprising her role as ‘The Grid’ seems at an end.
As for the charity calendar, you can buy it at redbubble.com for 39.78, the photos of the photo can also be bought separately framed for 140.00. I am sure the annual calendar is well within the means of most visitors so do buy one! Last years calendar can also be bought as a 2014 calendar, so if you haven’t got that one yet you can have two!

Katee Sackhoff Talks ACTING OUTLAWS with Tricia Helfer, RIDDICK and Why It’s Rated R, the All-Female EXPENDABLES Movie, and More
Known as the Acting Outlaws, actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer (who both worked on Battlestar Galactica together) participate in a variety of charity events, in an effort to raise money and awareness for causes they feel strongly about. With a merchandise store (at www.ActingOutlaws.org) that includes various t-shirts and a documentary of the motorcycle ride they took from Los Angeles to Louisiana, they now have a 2013 calendar that features 12 months of exclusive photos of the women in classy and provocative poses.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Katee Sackhoff talked about how the Acting Outlaws came about, what made them decide to do their first-ever calendar, where her interest in and love for motorcycles started, and more. She also talked about returning to her A&E drama series Longmire for Season 2, which starts shooting again in the middle of March, her experience making the next Riddick film with Vin Diesel, for which she had a nude scene that she needed to get her father’s permission for first, that she’s seen bits and pieces of the film while recording ADR and said that it’s bloody but that the R rating is definitely more for the language, how she’s attached to do the all-female Expendables movie with Gina Carano and that she’s excited about all of the women that they’re talking to for roles in it, and what it was like to work with Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) on the horror film Oculus. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
katee-sackhoff-acting-outlawsCollider: Where did the name Acting Outlaws come from?
KATEE SACKHOFF: Actually, Mark Derwin came up with the name. He was on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, which is now finished [shooting]. He’s Tricia Helfer’s husband’s best friend. She’s known Mark for 15 years, and we all ride motorcycles together. It just was something where we were trying to figure out a gang name because we wanted to start a motorcycle club, so our motorcycle club name was the Acting Outlaws Motorcycle Club. We were the AOMC. So, when we were trying to come up with a name for the company, it made sense to steal the name from the motorcycle club because the motorcycle club consists of seven people, two of which are our significant others. We actually really wanted to have a motorcycle club, and then we realized how much work it was. You actually have to take your name and your patch to the organizations of motorcycle clubs and get it approved. You sit there with the Hell’s Angels, and all these big, bad motorcycle guys, and you’re like, “We’re a bunch of actors who want to call ourselves the Acting Outlaws Motorcycle Club. Is that okay?” So, we opted to not actually be a motorcycle club, even though we still call ourselves a gang.
How did the idea for this calendar, with you and Tricia Helfer, come about?
SACKHOFF: We had been approached, a couple years ago, to do a calendar together. The company that approached us wanted to retain ownership and Tricia and I were like, “If there’s actually a market out there for this, then we should do it on our own.” I was like, “I don’t want to take naked pictures of myself. I don’t see myself that way.” Tricia comes from a modeling background, so for her, she was like, “It’s not that big of a deal.” I was like, “I don’t know if I really want to do this,” and she was like, “Okay, then let’s do it ourselves and do it for a good cause. That way, we’ll be able to get something out of it and the fans will get something out of it and amfAR will get something out of it.” So, it all worked out. To sit there and say you have a calendar makes us a little selfish to think that people would want it, but it’s for charity. Tricia and I have really found our calling, in that we love being together and we love riding our motorcycles. We tried to figure out a way to incorporate doing good, at the same time, and it just fit and worked out. This is the second thing that we’ve done to raise money for a charity, and we love it. It’s fun!

For 2013, we welcome two VIP guests to the Tulip Ride: The Acting Outlaws!
The Acting Outlaws are Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer. They met on the set of the hit SyFy series Battlestar Galactica where they formed a lifelong friendship based in part on their shared love of motorcycling and helping to make the world a better place through charity work. Together, they are “On a quest to do our part to protect the earth and all its inhabitants, we sought a way to marry our love of the open road with our love of humanity.”
