Claire Danes talks ‘Homeland’ season 4, Nimrat Kaur set as Carrie’s ‘nemesis’

While attending the Emmys, Claire Danes spoke briefly about the upcoming season of Homeland, confirming a definite different tone and setting for season 4.

“This is the first season is based in foreign territory … We’re seeing what espionage work is on the ground. It is full of adventure,” the star told E! Onlie during the pre-show red carpet coverage of the Awards ceremony.

The first full trailer for the hit Showtime show reveals Carrie on assignment in Pakistan, face to face with a brutal Muslim force as the CIA tension seems centered around this theme. Actress Nimrat Kaur  described her role this week in an interview which sheds some more light on the season.

“I have no idea that I have scenes with Claire Danes at this point. I play a mysterious person who is her nemesis on the show. Of course, it would be lovely to share screen space with her but every time I ask the writers they have this sweet smile on their faces, so I am not sure,” Nimrat told PTI in an interview.

The actress won international acclaim for playing a lonely housewife in Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox. Nimrat believes Homeland would be her real introduction to the western audience.

Lunchbox was an incredible gift for all of us, mostly for Ritesh and me but I feel ‘Homeland’ would be my real introduction to the western audience because it already has a great viewership and fan following. I feel I have a big responsibility to be as true to the story as possible,” Nimrat said.

 She explained the shooting style and getting the script at the last minute.

“It was completely out of my comfort zone. Everything was up in the air. Normally, I am used to working after doing a lot of rehearsal but we were given the script just before shooting. It felt like I was doing a workshop,” she said.

“A lot also depended on the energy of the day and your equation with your co-star. It was very challenging but I feel it was a good thing to chew on as an actor. They really placed a lot of trust in our ability as performers,” she added.
