Original 'V' star joins ABC's new 'V'
Jane Badler will play the mother of Morena Baccarin's character
ABC has announced that Badler will play Diana, mother to Morena Baccarin's Anna on the second-year sci-fi drama, making her first appearance in the yet-to-be-announced fall premiere.
Badler is best known as hamster-devoring V-leader Diana in the original '80s miniseries and subsequent TV series. She's also known, in certain circles, as a former Miss New Hampshire.
ABC proudly boasts that "V" delivered time period improvement in two slots last year, even winning its slots among men 18-34 and men 18-49. The show was also nominated for a special effects Emmy.
