Morena Baccarin on the Change in Tone from "Firefly" to "Serenity:" "Its a little darker and, as Nathan [Fillion] likes to say, a little sweatier. A lot more action going on, some more humor, but all in all its a little grittier and it kind of gets under your skin. Its really great."
Morena Baccarin Gets Into the Action: "Yeah, I get to do a little bit of ass kicking, a little, but its nice. A little archery. I think my character is in a very different place when this starts from where the series was, and I end up in a very different place this time as the movie ends. I think we all have a very good transition."
Inara Knows Archery?: "She knows everything. Dont ever underestimate Inara (laughing)."
Morena Baccarin on Her Character's Relationship with Mal: There was a lot of flirting and teasing going on between Inara and Fillion's character, Malcolm Reynolds, in "Firefly." Is that expanded on in "Serenity?" "You know, those two, their relationship, its the 'Moonlighting' thing. Who knows if its ever going to work out. That whole process I dont think is ever going to end."
Morena Baccarin on Sci-Fi Films: "You know what? I like 'Space Odyssey.' I loved 'Star Wars' growing up, the old ones. So I sort of like those movies, but I wasnt a sci-fi addict. Being a part of a sci-fi show was very cool."
Morena Baccarin's Favorite Scene in "Serenity:" "Theres so much that I love. I really like to watch the stuff between Nathan and Chiwetel Ejiofor. They were really great together when theyre facing off. And the way they fight Nathans so dirty and hes so clean and just wiping the sweat off of his brow while Nathans completely overtaken by the fight. I loved watching him."
Morena Baccarin Shares Her Favorite Joss Whedon Memory: "Well in general, I love it when were on set and hes giving us a note and he goes, 'Okay, that was great but can you do it better? Can you try acting?'"
Is "Wonder Woman" in Her Future?: Baccarin has been asked if she's up for the role of "Wonder Woman" ever since it was announced that Joss Whedon was involved with the film. Baccarin said, "I feel bad for Joss because Im sure hes getting bombarded with questions about it. I mean, Im not going to say no to a superhero but its not up to me."
On Sticking to the Script: "Joss is a stickler for his words. Everything I mean every the of and everything."
More Movies or a Return to TV: Baccarin thinks if there's an immediate future for "Firefly"/"Serenity," it'll take place on the big screen rather than the little. "Lets do some movies and then see where it goes," said Baccarin.
Morena Baccarin on "Firefly" Fans: "The fans are responsible for where we are now and its incredibly humbling to be a part of that with them."
On "Serenity" DVD Bonus Material: "Yeah, theyll be a really good blooper reel. Hopefully theyll put the whole version of it. Its pretty funny. We had a blooper reel cut together when we wrapped and there's a lot of Nathan screwing up."
What Fans Most Want to See in "Serenity:" "I think they want to see the characters that they recognize in extraordinary circumstances and they will see that."
What's Next: "Im working on getting a job. And I have a television thing that might possibly work out, but I cant talk about it yet. So well keep our fingers crossed and see what happens."
