Sometimes in Hollywood, there are stars who become synonymous with their characters that they play in television shows, often even becoming typecast due to such roles. So, considering the fact that Claire Danes has played the role of Carrie Mathison in Homeland for some time now and it seems that she might be getting bored of it.
It is obvious that Claire Danes is a very talented actress and would have no trouble winning a number of roles of her choice but the actress has hinted that she would like to take a break from the role. Claire does not want to become defined by her Homeland role and is looking forward to playing different characters in the future.
Danes told Interview Magazine, "I would really like to play another character to deviate from Carrie for a second, just because I'm starting to think that acting is this, and while this is one of the most fulfilling expressions of acting that I've found, it's not why I do it."
Claire Danes has experienced huge success playing the role of Carrie Mathison in Homeland, managing to pick up two Primetime Emmy Awards along the way. Homeland can be seen on Showtime in the US, while it also airs on Channel 4 in the UK.
We are interested to see what sort of roles Claire Danes is looking for and cannot wait to see what she brings us next.
