After one of the final auditions for the Starbuck role, Katee Sackhoff told her mother she was going to get the part. She added, " 'But there was this girl that I tested against that if they don't cast her as Boomer, they're crazy.' So that's what ended up happening. And I was really happy when I found out that they did cast [Grace Park] as Boomer. I think it worked out for the best."
