Morena Baccarin stars in "Homeland" on Showtime as Jessica Brody, Sgt. Nick Brody's (Damian Lewis) intrepid and complicated wife.

Morena Baccarin has gained recent success and recognition for her lead role in ABC's "V." In this 2009 remake of the 1980s miniseries, she stars as Anna, the leader of a cult of aliens known as the Visitors.

In 2009, Baccarin made her off-Broadway debut in Theresa Rebeck's television satire, "Our House," directed by Michael Mayer and written by Theresa Rebeck, at Playwrights Horizons in New York City where she played a news reporter whose affair with a television executive lands her a gig as the host of a hit reality show.

In April 2006, it was announced that Baccarin would be reprising her role as adult Adria in the movie "Stargate: The Ark of Truth." A recurring villain in the tenth season of "Stargate SG-1," Adria first appeared in season 10 episode, "Counterstrike."



In February 2005, Baccarin provided the voice for Black Canary in multiple episodes of the animated series "Justice League Unlimited." In 2006, she guest starred in two episodes of the hit television series, "The O.C." Baccarin also appeared in an unaired pilot episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," playing Carmen, a male-to-female transsexual. Although the episode never aired on television, it was used in the pitch to FX executives and can be viewed on the show's DVD's of Seasons 1 & 2.

Her first movie role came in 2001 in the improvised fashion world comedy "Perfume." Following that, she landed a lead part in film festival hit, "Way Off Broadway" (2001). Shortly before moving to Los Angeles, Baccarin appeared with Natalie Portman, and understudied for her role, in the acclaimed Central Park production of "The Seagull." Joss Whedon's science fiction drama "Firefly" was Baccarin's first television show, and she later reprised her role in the 2005 big-screen adaptation "Serenity," a continuation of the cancelled series. Other television work includes recurring roles on "Kitchen Confidential," "How I Met Your Mother," "Las Vegas," and starring in the cable series "Heartland."

Born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in New York, Morena Baccarin is the daughter of Brazilian stage actress Vera Setta and Brazilian Record TV News Coordinator, Fernando Baccarin. She moved to Greenwich Village at the age of 7, and later studied theater at the prestigious Julliard School.
