NEW - 05/23/11 - Visited with MORENA BACCARIN at the Big Apple Wizard World Comic Con held in NYC on May 21-22, 2011! MORE PICTURES & VIDEOS uploaded later...keep checking back!
Morena is a petite, exotic-looking woman who grew up in NYC. Her skin is flawless and her smile is captivating. It's no wonder she was able to deceive the humans!
Morena arrived at the convention on Saturday, May 21, 2011 around 1:30pm. She had just finished filming a movie in Montreal the previous day so, even though she was exhausted, she was very well in-tune with the fans' needs. Morena took one look at Baby KJ and said, "Cute and little people get a picture with me. Would you like me to pick you up?" Baby KJ smiled and nodded! [note: all 3 of my children, KJ, Tyler & Anna have seen every episode of "V."]
Most of the fans were from "V" and "Firefly." It was glorious to stand next to her. After the signing, she was whisked upstairs to the Gold Ballroom for her Q&A session. Baby KJ and I had a front & center row seat!
Then Morena acknowledged PROJECT ALICE - the SAVE "V" Campaign which is officially recognized by Warner Brothers!
Some HIGHLIGHTS we learned from MORENA at Wizard World Comic Con 2011:
- Wearing a hat because she’s letting her hair grow out and her hair is in that awkward stage
- Favorite TV show is “The Good Wife.” (ilana’s hatchlings Tyler &Anna are in Season 3 Episode 1!)
- Morena has a small dog named Rudy. She thought he was a mutt but turned out to be royalty. Like the size of a Maltese.
- Grew up in NYC around the corner from Murray’s bagels.
- Watched the original “V” as a little girl. Says one of the differences now is we have better special effects.
- Favorite color is blue.
- Loves to cook. Can make pizza.
- Cannot sing. Refused to sing Happy Birthday if it was someone’s birthday in the audience.
- Just finished a movie in Montreal. Had the most delicious bagel and smoked meat there.
- Doesn’t know if she’s been released from her “V” contract.
- Can speak elementary level Portuguese. Family is from Brazil.
- Gave a shout out to Project Alice! See videos!
- Picked up baby KJ for a hug and said baby KJ hugs like a koala bear.
- Wasn’t able to steal anything from the “V” set because Anna didn’t have anything; everything was green screen.
- During the green screen scene where Anna kills Diana, Morena thought she was speaking to a very large room of people, so played the lines very grand. When she saw the finished product, she was surprised that it looked like the people were standing at her feet and there weren’t as many people as she imagined.
- Couldn’t choose which is more of a favorite series, “V” or “Firefly.” (actually, she didn’t want to disappoint anyone.)
- Loves to do yoga.
- Currently reading “The Hunger Games.” Finished reading very large book called “Freedom.” (which Jane Badler also read.)
- Has a fiancé.
- How was it working with kids? It was easier working with the younger kids. That little baby was so cute. But when I was holding her and had to eat the rat, I was thinking how I wouldn’t want to be her [real life] mother right now! With the older "Amy," 4 or 5 years old, they don't quite understand about marks so it was hard to make them understand to stand on the mark when they wanted to go somewhere else.
