She Blinks to Conquer -- Morena Baccarin of 'V'

By Kate O'Hare on November 10, 2009

ABC's remake of "V" hit big in the ratings when it premiered [Nov. 3rd] and also stirred up a bit of controversy, with some claiming it's a veiled (or not so veiled, depending whom you ask) criticism of the current administration, and others claiming it's just a show about disguised aliens coming to Earth and promising hope, change and universal healthcare in exchange for unquestioning devotion.

... Whatever you think the show is really about, one thing's for sure -- it's really a TV show, and it got really good ratings, which is really good news for star Morena Baccarin, who plays Anna, the beguiling alien leader.

Here are the highlights of a brief chat we had after the "V" premiere:

Q: What did you think when you realized "V" was a hit?
A: Wow, holy sh-t. I think it's great. It's a little bit surprising, but at the same time not, because people are really excited about it, and we are very excited about it...

Amanda Tapping Launches Charity Website and Gives Sanctuary Spoilers

by Jenna Busch

Posted: November 12, 2009

Just when you thought sci-fi legend Amanda Tapping couldn't get any cooler...for eleven years, she starred as Lt. Colonel Samantha Carter in Stargate SG-1. Colonel Sam also appeared in twenty five episodes of Stargate Atlantis. She's guest starred on Stargate Universe. And she's currently starring in one of my favorites, Sanctuary. If you're not watching it, and you should be, Tapping plays Dr. Helen Magnus, a hundred-and-fifty-seven-year-old English scientist who runs a sanctuary for non-human creatures (vampires, mermaids ... the kind you don't see in zoos). The show is largely filmed in front of a green screen and was the first North American show to use the RED camera exclusively.

Tapping has just started a charity called “Sanctuary for Kids,” which will raise money for smaller charities, the ones that have suffered the most during this economic mess we find ourselves in. They'll be auctioning off a Sanctuary set visit, props from the show and a Skype chat with Tapping and the show's creator Damian Kindler. Tapping tells us that she knows how generous sci-fi fans can be, and that she knows they'll be willing to help out. Tapping also gave us some great info on what's coming up on the show, whether or not she'll be appearing on another episode of Ghost Hunters and reuniting with SG-1 costar Michael Shanks during his guest appearance on her show. (Check out our exclusive first look at photos from the episode, "Penance" with Shanks [at the link above], and a sneak peek of Friday's episode, "Fragments.")
