Claire Danes was born in Manhattan, New York. She is the daughter of Carla (Hall), a day-care provider and artist, and Christopher Danes, a computer consultant and photographer. She has an older brother, Asa. Her paternal grandfather, Gibson Andrew Danes, was a Dean of the Yale School of Art and Architecture, and Claire has English, German, Scottish, Irish, and Austrian ancestry. She is married to actor Hugh Dancy, with whom she has a son called Cyrus.

Claire was educated at Dalton School, New York, The New York City Lab School for Collaborative Studies, The Professional Performing Arts School and graduated from Lycée Français de Los Angeles. From 1998, she attended Yale University, studying psychology, but dropped out after two years to concentrate on her acting career. Her letter of recommendation was written by director Oliver Stone, with whom she had worked with in the film ‘U Turn’ (1997).

Claire first came to major public attention when she was cast as leading character Angela Chase in ‘My So-Called Life’ (1994). She won an Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe award for her performance on the show. A successful film career followed, including the role of “Juliet”, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Romeo + Juliet’ (1996). She was also James Cameron’s first choice for Rose DeWitt Bukater in ‘Titanic’, but turned the role down due to having starred with Leonardo DiCaprio in a film the year before. She continued acting in a variety of projects, such as ‘The Hours’ (2002), ‘Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines’ (2003) and ‘Stardust’ (2007).

In 2010, she appeared in the HBO production ‘Temple Grandin’ (2010), playing the title character. She received huge critical acclaim for the role, which won her an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Claire is currently starring in Showtime’s hit television series ‘Homeland’, in which she plays Carrie Mathison, a former CIA agent who struggles with bipolar disorder. ‘Homeland’ has already been renewed for a total of 8 seasons, and Claire has already been nominated for over 20 awards for her performance as Carrie, having won multiple Primetime Emmy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Satellite Awards and more.
