Jane Badler Returns to V As a New, "More Mature" Diana

When ABC's V returns, the alien invasion series will welcome a very familiar face.

Jane Badler, who starred in the original 1983 miniseries, returns to the world as Diana, the mother of the ruthless leader of the Visitors, Anna (Morena Baccarin). While her character's name is the same, the new Diana is nothing like the Diana of before. (Makes sense: The series is a reboot, not a continuation of the original miniseries.)

In the original, Diana was the sadistic deputy leader of the Visitors who pioneered the mind control experiments on humans. Like the remake's Anna, Diana was not someone to be messed with.

But Diana 2.0 is different in significant ways, Badler says. She's a lot more enigmatic. "At first, I was trying to bring the old Diana into [the new character] even though [the producers] told me that it wasn't that Diana," Badler says. "The more that the character developed, the more it became a separate entity and evolved into a new incarnation. This Diana is a lot more mature."
