Claire Danes discusses ‘Homeland’ season 3, Brody on the run and visiting Langley

Claire Danes is the middle of Homeland filming, with three more episodes of season 3 to shoot, and while it’s not clear exactly what Carrie, Brody and the CIA are up to this year, it’s safe to say it’s going to be intense.

Talking with EW Danes has to address the rumor that Damian Lewis is not in the first two episodes.

Claire Danes Showtime Homeland photo“In the beginning of this show, as you would imagine, they are physically separated. He’s on the run and Carrie’s been tracking his course but isn’t entirely sure where he is at any given moment. She, along with the other people in the CIA, is held on trial. The organization is under serious investigation and is on the verge of maybe ceasing to exist; very vulnerable to being shut down entirely. So she and Saul are having to defend it and keep it alive, which is very stressful. And [Saul and Carrie] aren’t as simpatico as they have been in the past. … Saul has amazing stuff this season, and up until this point, he’s only been presented as utterly sympathetic and kind, and we see a much more complex portrait of him here. That’s great, because he’s such a rich character.”

The Terminator 3 star discussed the cast’s visit to Langley.

“We had a field trip. … It was great. My roommate from college actually works at the CIA, so she was able to actually pop down from her office and join us. It was just wild to find ourselves in that context [Laughs], just flashing back to who we were as freshmen. No way would we have anticipated we would find ourselves in that moment. So that was neat to share with her.”

She praises Saul and the intensity of the show, so check out the full interview here

Homeland‘s third season premieres September 29.
