Through seven seasons, the Showtime drama Homeland has taken Claire Danes’s character, former CIA agent Carrie Mathison, all over the world and into the deepest depths of her own psyche. It’s been a great role for Danes, one that has earned her five Emmy nominations and two wins. As the show prepares to wrap up with its eighth season, Danes told us she gives a lot of credit to the show’s producers and writers, who keep finding ways to develop her character in ways she never even imagined.
