Roselyn Sanchez On Filming New Movie 'Act of Valor'

Roselyn Sanchez may be a happy new mom in real life--she gave birth to daughter Sebella Rose on Jan. 4--but starting Feb. 24 she showcases her darkest film role yet, as a kidnapped undercover CIA agent in the thriller Act of Valor.

This wasn't a traditional role for me, which is why I was drawn to it. I play a CIA agent and I get kidnapped, beaten and raped in the film, so it was very intense. When I was in the moment, I thought, "Oh my God, what did I get myself into?"
