Claire Danes needed break from Homeland

Homeland actress Claire Danes has revealed how she needed to take a much needed break from her CIA agent character Carrie during the time between season one ending and season two beginning. Claire claims that there was such a psychological demand to the character that she was pleased of the time away from her.

Danes explained to The New York Times, “It's been nice to have a reprieve. I feel I put her in the fridge for a few months, next to the vodka. I was a little nervous about being able to access her straight away again, but no, there she is, right next to the vodka. I like her a lot. She means well and she is kind of a superhero. So it is fun to put my crazy Carrie cape on again.”

Claire admitted that, while playing Carrie is rather demanding, she really enjoys being a part of Homeland, as the show gives her more professional satisfaction that anything she has ever done in the past.

She added, “I do get more pleasure from this than almost anything else… I love words. It is physical. It is intellectual. It's psychological. It's like, I get both to ice skate and fly a trapeze, and who wouldn't want to do that?”

Homeland season two is set to premiere in the US on September 30 at 10pm ET/PT on Showtime.
