Posted by on 7 November 2009 with Comments Off on yahoo! tv blog: the buzz on v’s morena baccarin

Thanks to Amber for sending me the link to this. Morena’s portrayal of Anna on V seems to be generating a lot of buzz. Yahoo! TV‘s Claudine Zap wrote a lovely article about her, so be sure to check it out. Here’s a preview.

Even if you didn’t watch the season opener, you may recognize Morena Baccarin from the promos for the show: She’s the enormous serene head projected on a hovering spacecraft with a message to earthlings: “We mean no harm.”

But don’t you believe it. What you can believe is this: The actress is scoring out-of-this-world searches on the Web. Lookups on the rising star soared up an astronomical 4,580% in one-day searches on Yahoo!, making the “V” headliner one of the top five searches on the Web. The buzz is paying off: A whopping 13.9 million viewers tuned in, making it one of the highest-rated new shows this season.

First of all, apologies for the gallery down time (I was in class and couldn’t address the issue until now). In better news, however, I have added more stills from episode three of “V”.

Some awesome news for you guys!

So much for those promises of peace. V destroyed the competition last night.

The drama’s long-awaited arrival drew nearly 14 million viewers, making it the second most-watched series premiere of the season (behind NCIS: LA’s 18.7 million).

Although NCIS grabbed the total viewers crown (19.4 million), V easily walked off with the night’s highest adult 18-49 numbers. In fact, V marked ABC’s best 18-49 performance in the time period in three years.

Did you watch? Will you keep watching?

Sci-Fi Wire sat down with Morena, Elizabeth Mitchell and Joel Gretsch on the Vancouver set of “V”. They talk about their characters, compare Anna and Diana and talk about the terrorism aspect of the show. Again, the video only seems to work in Internet Explorer, so Firefox users may want to switch browsers temporarily.

Access Hollywood has declared Morena their “rising star” and also conducted a short interview with her about the premiere of “V”.

“I was unaware of the other people they were seeing,” she said of the casting process, which reportedly initially had the actress placed into the “no” pile. “I knew they were seeing a lot of people for the role, but I had heard of the original and I had seen it when I was little in Brazil and I thought it was really exciting that they were remaking it. When I read the pilot, I immediately thought I knew what I wanted to do with the role. When I went into the audition, it felt really right.”

Also right was the boyish (yet delicate) haircut Morena already had, a look which has suited just a handful of celebrity faces over time – Audrey Hepburn, a young Mia Farrow, Halle Berry and Jean Seberg, whose picture Morena took to the hairdressers.

The article can be found here.
