‘Homeland’s’ Quran controversy with Morena Baccarin


[SPOILER] According to The Huffington Post, there was a scene in “Homeland” Season 2 where Nicholas Brody’s (Damian Lewis) wife Jessica (Morena Baccarin) throws the Holy Quran on the floor in a fit of rage. The scene created a lot of controversy and the actress even received hate tweets for going ahead with the scene.

The show has been criticised by many for its problematic depiction of Islam since its 2011 debut. It has never been a stranger to controversy.

“People forget that you're just expressing what's given to you to read on the script. Of course you take some responsibility for actually doing it, but it's a story,” Baccarin told HuffPost Live.
Baccarin is also starring in the latest Marvel film “Deadpool” that has Ryan Reynolds as the anti-hero. She did say that there were times during filming certain “Homeland” scenes where she knew there would be a strong backlash from viewers, particularly those scenes that hit “close to him,” as she put.
