Morena Baccarin has a thing for sci-fi. Currently portraying the leader of a hostile alien race on ABC’s “V,” Baccarin previously boasted roles in space-opera cult favorite “Firefly” and “Stargate SG-1.” Before landing any of these parts, however, the Brazillian-born Baccarin trained in Julliard’s renowned theatre program, befriending fellow classmate “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” actor Glenn Howerton, alongside whom she would later appear in the show’s unaired pilot episode.
A word from Morena: “She’s the nurturer, and the heart of the crew. They call her an ambassador. She bridges the gap between worlds.”
