During a roundtable discussion with THR, Homeland star Claire Danes detailed the “unpleasant” nature of filming scenes during her pregnancy.

“I had to do love scenes pregnant. That was really unpleasant,” she recalled during a round table chat with The Hollywood Reporter in the May 21 interview. “[It was] like he was protesting on my husband’s [Hugh Dancy] behalf,” she joked.

Danes does address the death of Brody and the departure of Damian Lewis.

“[Killing him] was supposed to happen in the second season. Then the Carrie-Brody relationship became so captivating for audiences that Showtime wanted to extend it. We had been anticipating the finale for quite a while. We shot the scene [where Brody is hanged] on our final day working in Morocco. It was all very heightened, literally. The crane broke at one point. I still don’t think I’ve really processed it. I go back to work in a month, and I think it’ll occur to me then that he’s really gone. It’ll be a very different environment when we return and Damian, whom I love, isn’t there.”
