Morena – Reigning Sci-fi Queen

We saw her first as the gorgeous ‘Inara Serra’, a companion in the world of tv’s Firefly, a role she would also play out in the movie version – Serenity. She dressed glamourously, piloted a shuttle and won the hearts of many admirers.

We then saw her as ‘Adria’, a genetically advanced human, in 5 episodes of the 10th season of Stargate : SG1 and in the movie Stargate : The Ark of Truth.

And now we see her as ‘Anna’ in the much discussed remake of the 1980’s cult classic alien invasion series – V. Morena plays the role of the alien visitors High Commander who assures mankind that the Visitors have come in peace and want to trade their technology, including the cure for many diseases, for certain minerals that their society needs. Needless to say, their intentions are not what they seem and I’m waiting to watch the luscious Brazilian born babe in this role.

V’s pilot episode debuted on American & Canadian television on the 3rd of this month. Not sure as to when it’s going to star showing in India – I would bet on AXN getting the rights and not Star World – but I hope they do get it soon.

Arsenal 4 AZ Alkmaar 1

After a convincing 4-1 victory over AZ Alkmaar the Gunners need just a single point from their two remaining fixtures to qualify from Group H. Arsenal ran out 4-1 winners over reigning Dutch champions AZ in a vintage display of fluid passing and ruthless finishing. Captain Cesc Fabregas helped himself to two goals but, despite being pleased with his team’s performance, was quick to point out that they are still yet to qualify.

Samir Nasri, making his first Champions League appearance of the season, doubled Arsenal’s advantage on the stroke of half time. Abou Diaby capped an all-action individual performance by putting the finishing touch on a vintage Arsenal move to make it 4-0 on 72 minutes. There was still time for AZ to grab a controversial consolation ten minutes later, with Jeremain Lens breaking free of the Arsenal defence and beating Manuel Almunia when it looked like the recently re-instated goalkeeper could have done better. The result leaves Arsenal in a commanding position in Group E, needing just a point from their remaining two fixtures to secure passage to the knock-out stages.
