Damian Lewis confesses he’ll ‘miss Brody’ as ‘Homeland’ season 4 films

Fans may have been divided on the Homeland season 3 finale and the demise of Brody. Star Damian Lewis may also be a bit saddened by the exclusion of the popular character.

Damian Lewis Brody Showtime Homeland season 3“I’d known for some time that this would be Brody’s last season, so I was well prepared. Still it was such an enjoyable job that I’ll miss Brody,” Lewis says in the July 3 interview with Hunger TV.

On what’s next, Lewis says he’s out of the loop, but confident in the creators. “I have no idea where they’ll take Homeland next, but I bet it will be brilliant. Some people have said that the end of season three felt like a series finale.”

Lewis contrasts Europe with America, noting it’s a “very conservative place,” and discusses how the show tries to use real themes.

“It has been part of the great success of the show. The writers have brilliantly picked current political stories – the obvious example being terrorism, something that is with us now for the foreseeable future. The idea that an upstanding American hero, who happens to be a marine, might change his ideology was a bold story outline to choose. It challenges Americans with the idea that one of your own might turn against you.”

Lewis briefs fans on what he missed out on while filming Homeland, primarily in North Carolina.

“When filming Homeland, I spent most of my time in Charlotte, North Carolina. It’s a very large and spread-out place where you rely heavily on cars. I missed the clamour of London; it’s a much more condensed city where you can exercise your senses. I love getting out of cars and getting on the tube. I also missed riding my bicycle, and of course, going to the pub.”

Damian stars in Werner Herzog’s Gertrude Bell biopic titled Queen of the Desert and a drama titled The Silent Storm opposite Andrea Riseborough. Lewis co-stars in a new story centering on Shakespeare titled Bill (opening in February 2015) and thriller with Ewan McGregor called Our Kind of Traitor.
