Claire Danes is deep in the trenches of Homeland filming, with three more episodes of season 3 to shoot, and while it’s not clear exactly what Carrie and Co. at the CIA are up to this year, it’s safe to say it’s going to be intense.
In addition, Danes is currently prepping for the Emmy Awards, where she’s up for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama (she won last year). But she still found time to shoot an Emmy-themed ad for Audi, which will premiere during the telecast (the exclusive photo above is from the ad shoot — puppies!). “It’s really kind of goofy and playful,” Danes told EW about the Audi ad. “I’ve been doing Homeland for three years now and it’s pretty intense,” she laughed. “The stakes are preposterously, ridiculously high. So I was looking forward to just goofing off for a few days and having some fun.”
And fun is not really a word anyone would use to describe Carrie Mathison — regardless of what the future holds. Danes may be close to the end of season 3, but that doesn’t mean she has any clue where her storyline is headed next. “I don’t even bother to fantasize about what it’s going to be or cultivate a hope for what Carrie might be in the coming season because I know I’m going to be so overwhelmed by [the writers'] infinitely better ideas [laughs].”
While Danes might not yet have a season 4 plan, EW did get her to tease some season 3 intel (bad for a CIA agent, great for TV viewers!) about the latest in Carrie and Brody’s relationship, why Saul and Carrie may be on the outs, and the moment she’s most proud of from season 2 of Showtime’s drama.
