Stephanie Jacobsen plays Kendra Shaw, the lead character in Razor, which focuses on the Battlestar Pegasus.
Stephanie was born in Hong Kong in 1980 and moved to Australia at the age of 12.
Kendra Shaw fits seamlessly into the GALACTICA world. So well in fact that as the movie progresses, you’ll be wishing for ways in which GALACTICA mastermind Ronald D. Moore can integrate her into the show as a series regular. That or spend your time imagining who would win in a girl fight — Shaw or Starbuck?
Stephanie, though a new person on the set, performed pretty well as the movie’s link between the Cain era on Pegasus and the Lee Adama era that follows. She was the focal point of Razor.
Asked how familiar she was with Battlestar before getting the role as Kendra, Jacobsen said “I’m from Sydney, Australia. We get Battlestar Galactica there. I don’t know how up to date it is on Australian screens but basically I was familiar with the concept, with the characters, all the foundations basically, but in terms of storylines and things like that I wasn’t particularly up to date.”
The story of Razor follows Kendra both as a new recruit on Pegasus and also as second-in-command of Pegasus.
