"I got my SAG card doing the first ever commercial for Dasani bottled water. I thought I only got the part because of my red hair but then the commercial was shot in black and white and I realized I got the part could I could sell the s--- out of overpriced bottled water." — Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family, nominee for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
Consider her Lost and found! As cultural anthropologist Charlotte Lewis on the dearly departed mind-bending ABC drama, Rebecca Mader was done in by a gushing nosebleed following too much time travel. Now, Mader is back from the dead to play the equally mysterious Victoria Morrow on No Ordinary Family in an arc of episodes that kicks off tonight at 8/7c on ABC. We asked the fiery gal for the scoop about her new alter ego.

It's hard to imagine the father from My Three Sons in a mess like this. TV's newest widowed dad, Dexter Morgan, has left his kids at home to get the goods on a suspect he thinks may be a murderer. If that's true, Dex will probably have to kill the guy, just as he's offed 60-odd other psychos since the Showtime series began in 2006. Of course, Dexter himself might be the next casualty if he keeps the kids and their new nanny waiting much longer.
"It's definitely not easy balancing single fatherhood with the sort of affliction Dexter has," Michael C. Hall says with wry amusement on the set in Los Angeles, where Season 5 finds his character dealing with the aftermath of his wife Rita's death. In case you missed the most jaw-dropping twist in Dexter history, here's what went down in last season's finale...
How poetic for Julie Benz that just two days after she retires one alter ego — Rita was buried in Dexter's September 26 premiere — the actress will debut her new character on No Ordinary Family. And not just any character, but a scientist named Stephanie who suddenly develops superspeed.
Most kids would love to have superpowers, but not No Ordinary Family's Daphne.
On the new ABC series, each member of the Powell family magically obtains a special power during a vacation gone awry. Mom Stephanie (Julie Benz) gets super-speed since she's always working or on the move. Dad Jim (Michael Chiklis) is a police sketch artist who becomes insanely strong. Brother JJ (Jimmy Bennett), who struggles to get good grades, becomes a genius. And Daphne (Kay Panabaker) can read people's minds.
Michael C. Hall
While Michael C. Hall has survived his own life-or-death battle with cancer, his serial-killing character on Dexter will be attempting to pick up the pieces of his life after the savage murder of his wife, Rita (Julie Benz). TVGuide.com spoke with the 39-year-old actor to discuss his health and what Dexter will have to contend with in the new season.
