“V” star Morena Baccarin back in action

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Last season, “V” fans at Comic-Con and elsewhere kept asking the show’s stunning, sexy head alien, Morena Baccarin, whether her Anna character was going to eat a rat — something that those bad folks from outer space have been seen doing on the sci fi cult favorite. Now, with “V” production back in full swing for a November return, the Rio de Janeiro-born actress says, “It turns out I am. It’s done in a very different way than before. It’s pretty gross. It was a long, hard day at work.”

Certainly this highly-anticipated bit was done via movie magic.

“A certain part of it was, but I still had to handle a huge rat all day,” she says.

Fortunately, Baccarin was still fresh from her production hiatus when the rat business went down. She spent much of her time traveling to promote “V” in Europe and in Latin America.

“I went back to Rio and to Sao Paulo. I got to spend time with my family and be there while the show was airing. To be known in my homeland — it was incredible,” she relates. The Brazilians showed her “a reaction of pride. It was the sweetest thing I ever experienced. I did a talk show there that I grew up watching. It was so surreal and wonderful,” adds the beauty, whose mother is Brazilian actress Vera Setta, and whose father, Fernando Baccarin, is in TV news.

She certainly had the chance to brush up on her Portuguese. “I do speak it. I don’t know about flawlessly. I don’t speak it that often anymore,” she says.

Baccarin also enjoyed the European leg of her promo trek. “In Barcelona and other cities, suddenly there were locals following me everywhere. We’re a Number 1 rated show in Europe.”
