Claire talks to InStyle about “Homeland”

Oct 4, 2014 Author: Gabby       Category: Interviews ,Press Archive       Replies: 0

InStyle interviewed Claire during the special “Homeland” screening last month, and the interview has just been released. Read it below:

On her hit show Homeland, which airs its Season 4 premiere episode this Sunday, Oct. 5, on Showtime, three-time Emmy winner and four-time Golden Globe winner Claire Danes is back as whipsmart CIA Case Officer Carrie Mathison. We sat down with the star at the premiere party hosted by Showtime and Fox 21 in New York City and made her dish on everything Homeland:

Your character on the show is a new mom: How has that changed her?
She has a baby, but she hasn’t really assumed her role of motherhood—she’s still traumatized [from last season] by what happened and is not really allowing herself to grieve properly, so she’s running away. And she’s running into work, and she’s kicking ass, but is a little devoid of feeling. She’s very disconnected. She’s alarmingly high functioning. She’s too put together, which is a deviation from what we’ve seen in the past—where she’s been more erratic.

Ultimately, it will be that she has to break and she will become humanized and actually admit to these painful feelings. Right now, not so much. She’ll thaw somehow—but not for a while. That’s her trajectory.

As an erratic yet brilliant bipolar CIA agent in Homeland, Claire Danes portrays her character with emotion and truth. Ajesh Patalay finds the actress equally passionate about her son, marriage and love for her work.

My first sighting of Claire Danes is across the Sant Ambroeus in New York, her choice of restaurant for lunch. I arrive on time on what is already a swelteringly hot day. So when the 35-year-old actress tumbles through the door 15 minutes later, she looks flushed and flustered in the way that anyone might who was running behind schedule and had been pounding the sidewalk in the midday sun.

Behind the scenes of Claire’s Emmy Awards look!

Aug 27, 2014 Author: Gabby       Category: Articles       Replies: 0

As you may be aware do to our previous posts, Claire attended last night’s Emmy Awards, accompanied by her husband Hugh Dancy and wearing a beautiful red Givenchy dress. InStyle has published an article about Claire’s preparations for the event, which includes insights by her makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada, and her hairstylist, Peter Butler. Read it below:

She may have played grunge queen Angela Chase in My So-Called Life, but for tonight’s Emmy Awards, Claire Danes‘s beauty look gave a nod to the more glamorous end of the ’90s. “Claire’s Givenchy dress reminded me of the supermodels at the end of the ’80s and into the early ’90s–Karen Mulder in particular,” her makeup artist Matin tells InStyle exclusively. “She was always perfectly blonde with beautiful lips and eyes, and I’ve been dreaming of doing that look, but in a more modern way.”

Rather than playing up just one area of her face, Matin didn’t skimp on the drama, choosing to emphasize both her eyes and lips against a glowing complexion. “It’s more dramatic than usual, but it’s an ode to those glamorous days of the supermodels,” he adds. Of course, Matin and Danes’s hairstylist Peter Butler had a blast while prepping her for the big event. “Peter and I have been working with her for so many years. Her baby, husband, and parents were around, and it truly felt like being at home,” Matin says. “She was playing really beautiful music, so we were listening to that, chillilng out, and she brought along crafts and trinkets she had picked up in South Africa, so we were opening presents and having a lot of fun.” Keep reading to get a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at how Danes and her glam squad pulled her look together, and to find out how you can recreate it yourself!

Claire talks to City Press

Aug 19, 2014 Author: Gabby       Category: Articles       Replies: 0

Lesley Mofokeng, from the website City Press, had a chance to talk to Claire on the set of “Homeland” this week. She published an article about their conversation earlier today, and you can read it below:

Vuyo Mbuli must be smiling from the grave. The veteran broadcaster, who died last year, will be proud to know that “sharp sharp” – a phrase he was known for – has caught on with Hollywood royalty. Claire Danes, star of the hit TV series, Homeland, which is shooting in Cape Town, says this is her favourite piece of South African slang.

She intends to keep using it when she goes back home to the US.

“‘Sharp sharp’ is my favourite,” she enthused when City Press visited her on the set of the series.

The actress plays Carrie Mathison, a CIA operations officer with bipolar disorder, in the Golden Globe and Emmy-award winning drama.

“Of course, I know about ‘just now’, ‘now now’ and ‘howzit’. One of my best friends lived in Cape Town for two years and our children are around the same age. She kept calling my son ‘boy’ and I thought that was kind of aggressive, but I actually now see why she was doing that. I also like ‘my lady’ and ‘boss’,” she said.

Not only has her stay been a lesson in linguistics, but Danes has indulged in the culinary delights offered by the fairest Cape. “As for food, I’m now officially on a diet because the food has been effing incredible. When I first got here, I was a little overexcited, so I’m taking a pause for a second so I can head back to the culinary offers again.”

“Cape Town has been good to me, I love being here. It’s one of the most beautiful places I have been to on the planet. I travel pretty extensively and it is breathtakingly beautiful. I’ve been doing these trail runs and I can’t believe this is just a casual run at the end of the day – they have these heavenly views.”

“But I’ve been working hard too and spending the majority of my time at the office, so to speak. I’m also aware of the cultures recalibrating after apartheid. But I’m moved by the beauty of the place and the people have been warm.”
