Tough Gal Dahl From ‘Riddick’ Talks Taking Out Meat and Taking Down Men

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

There’s one person that the muscle-bound men in Riddick won’t mess with: Dahl, the experienced bounty hunter who is one seriously tough tigress. And there’s one thing that Katee Sackhoff, who plays Dahl, won’t mess with: meat. This überstrong gal gets her power from plants. “[The director] was adamant that he wanted me to look like I could kill any one of these men [in the film],” she said, “and they were all over 6-feet tall and I’m only 5’5″.” Katee upped her calories and her workouts, and when Dahl declares, early on in the film, “I don’t f*** guys. But occasionally, I f*** ’em up,” she leaves no doubt that she can.
