Baccarin was born in Rio de Janeiro and educated in New York at the LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts and the Juilliard School, where she starred in a number of plays, including Mary Stuart, The Seagull, The Importance of Being Earnest and Love's Labours Lost.
Prior to moving to Los Angeles, she landed a small part in the independent feature Roger Dodger. The experience of working on a film with actors such as Campbell Scott and Isabella Rossellini prompted her to head west where, soon after arrival in L.A., she came to the attention of Joss Whedon, who cast her in Firefly. She subsequently became a regular on the FOX series Still Life.
