Morena Baccarin is about to prove she’s a real warrior…
The 34-year-old Brazilian actress, who earned the first Emmy nomination of her career last year for her supporting role on Showtime’s Homeland, has been cast as the female lead in ABC’s medical pilot Warriors.
The drama project, from writer Chris Keyser, Mandeville Films and Television and ABC Studios, deals with war veterans.
Inspired by the Walter Reed Military Medical Center, Warriors follow the best and brightest active-duty military doctors and nurses as they practice trailblazing medicine.
Baccarin will play Tory, a psychiatrist and expert on PTSD who suffers a mild case herself having just returned from Afghanistan.
This marks Baccarin’s return to ABC, after she starred in the sci-fi drama series V.
