Claire Danes shows some leg for GQ UK Magazine’s September 2012 issue, which therefore makes her a much coveted September issue cover girl! Photographed by Simon Emmett, inside the Homeland star talks about her impending motherhood role, and of course Homeland, where she plays troubled but very brilliant CIA agent Carrie Mathison alongside Damien Lewis (who I loved in “Life”).
Claire (33) shares that she is inspired by Carrie’s determination to unearth the truth in the US political thriller – despite her suffering from bipolar disorder:
‘She’s like my kinky superhero alter ego now,’ Claire says. ‘Because as disturbed and troubled as she is, she’s always ****ing right. Which is so nice because I so rarely am.
‘To be honest I never expected [the show] to get picked up so I wasn’t sure what it was going to be like, but it’s fun. It’s like, “Oh, there she is again!” I like her a lot.’
Excitingly, Claire has signed a seven-year contract to remain with Homeland series, fingers crossed Season 2 is as brilliant as Season 1 was although being apart from her husband, Hugh Dancy (lives in their New York spartment), during the filming of the series is hard she says:
‘It sucks. Seven years, it’s a long-ass time. But every year I’m going to have something really compelling to do.’
Great to see Claire on a cover!
