    Morena Baccarin

    I'm not sure how to do those links, so I guess I'll just have to write it out.
    USA Today had a nice article on Morena Baccarin.

    "Cryptic 'V' Character is alien to Baccarin"

    As the leader of the alien Visitors, Morena Baccarin sports prime time's
    most prominent pixie haircut.
    And don't tell her bosses at ABC, but she has gotten a little sick of it.
    "I want to bleach my hair blond. I'd love to, but they would kill me
    right now if I did that", she says.
    No kidding. The series V, starring Baccarin as Anna, the poker-faced
    president of the extraterrestrial Visitors, has proven to be a hit for ABC.
    The fourth episode airs tonight and the series returns in March.
    Baccarin, 30, is animated and peppy in person. On screen, she's as
    cool as, well, a lizard.
    So she's particularly excited that this week,"You get to see what
    makes Anna tick a little bit. It's fun to be mysterious. I know that
    what Anna is doing and what her agenda is are really important, but
    you can't let on. I have to make her likeable and intriguing to people
    who feel like they shouldn't like her."
    The Los Angeles-based actress, who was born in Brazil but grew up
    in New York, auditioned for the part and landed the job in one day.
    "I read this role and gravitated toward it, which I don't know if that's
    good or bad thing", she says with a laugh.
    Her shorn hair, which she had cut earlier, worked in her favor. "There
    was a tiny bit of debate in the beginning. There was a second there
    where we discussed if she should have long hair. But having her be
    different would be better. I voiced my opinion that she should be
    crisp and clean and precise. The costume designer totally agreed."
    Given that Baccarin played a courtesan in Joss Whedon's series
    Firefly, and it's big-screen adaptation, Serenity, has she been
    crowned the queen of the geeks?
    Sort of.
    "It's been really weird to walk down the street. At the post
    office the other day, a woman said I looked exactly like the alien
    on V. It's so weird to have people recognize you. They look at
    you like you're an alien."

    What makes Baccarin tick

    Punctuality: "I hate being late. It makes me crazy."
    Sushi: "I love it. And shooting in Vancouver is great because
    it has amazing sushi."
    Politics: "I would love to meet President Obama. I think he is
    so charming and smart. It took us no time at all to turn on him.
    Certainly leading the country is a really tough job."
    Vacations: "My boyfriend and I are going to Europe for a
    couple of weeks later this year. We're going to London and
    maybe Spain or Croatia."
    Fans: "It's definitely weird and odd that I can go somewhere
    and be recognized. But I think it's fun."

    Also, the write-up on the fourth episode:

    After a fast fall run, V exits the air tonight with a cliffhanger that
    will have to hold fans until March. As often happens with Start-up
    series, V has been inconsistent the past few weeks, and so has
    viewer response. But if you're a fan, don't let that pattern overly
    concern you. Think of this string of episodes as a miniseries
    prologue, with the real show kicking off come spring. That's
    plenty of time for the writers, and the network, to reconsider
    any unpromising paths.

    Baccarin makes one fascinating Anna to watch. She seems so calm, collected, and beautiful in her portrayal of Anna, but you can always feel the underlying deceit and treachery bubbling beneath the surface, and you never know exactly what she's plotting until it happens, which makes for one incredible villainess.

    Some aliens get to have long hair. Others not. It's a hair tragedy in her case but I guess is makes sense because the close cropped look makes her face more snappish, like for when her teeth come out.

    Where was she? In Brazil promoting the show? I understand that Warner Brothers has a fairly big presence in Latin America with their network and that many of the shows they produce in the US they take to their stations in Central and South America. They usually pay for the production of the show and sell them to the US networks at a fraction of the price that it would cost them to make it themselves while WB makes quite a bit of money from DVD and internet sales and from their Latin American stations. This might be a good sign that the show is returning.

    Yes, she was in Brazil last week at the Warner channel press conference. It lasted about 40 minutes, and I asked her what about her favorite shows on TV (I know... that was the most random question ever. hahaha) She said she liked BBT, Dexter, Family Guy and Modern Family.

    She is so amazing and beautiful! I really hope I get the chance to meet her at Dragoncon in Sept. It would make my whole year very happy.

    Hello people

    My name is Sergei and I am from Germany. I am a big fan of -2009 V and look at the consequences on ABC. The actress Morena Baccarin, I find it simply divine. To date, female actress I have seen the play, your role so excellent. What I found is more Rescherschen Baccarin the woman in real life man and a madman in this sense unique. What interest me if there any official side of it where we can send your questions or even personally. Since I am from Germany that is easy to follow for me as a fan to fly to Los Angeles for her work. Recently it has an appearance in Milan, Italy is planning a show in Germany when the series is presented. Furthermore, I wanted to say that it is a class forum and you get new info.

    Send a message to: Wicked Lois (Clara know) you Baccarin Women Personally. ?

    Thank you

    PS:Please excuse me for my bad English.

    Yours sincerely,
    Sergei

    Oh, lucky you, Clara! Those pics are fabulous.

    I'd love to hear Morena speaking Portuguese, considering it's her native language. Julliard really did beat the Brazil out of her accent.
