I just came across a new interview of Claire for Entertainment Tonight, which was released about a week ago as part of their series about this year’s Primetime Emmy contenders. You can read it below.

Never a stranger to tackling hot-button topics and explosive political situations, the Showtime drama Homeland found itself in the middle of a real-life plot twist so good it was impossible to ignore — the 2016 presidential election and its cultural and political aftermath.

While in the middle of the series’ sixth season, showrunner Alex Gansa began writing new scripts and retrofitting scenes into already shot episodes that reflected America’s current political climate, placing a greater burden on the series’ star, Claire Danes, in her role as Carrie Mathison.

“The onus is on the writers to make the show as relevant and reflective of what’s happening as possible. I’m interpreting their work, so it’s fun for me,” Danes tells ET, explaining that it’s the actor’s responsibility to be flexible and responsive to the ever-changing nature of their work. “That’s true of television in general; you’re airing as you’re filming, as you’re writing. It’s all happening simultaneously. You have to rely on your experience and your reflexes and your technique, but also your intuition. I think you just have to do it and pray that it’s working.”

Claire and her Homeland co-star Mandy Patinkin have recently talked to Deadline about the additional resonance the show has taken on post-Trump, and their hopes for the series as it heads into its final two seasons. A new portrait was released with their interview, and you will find it in our photo gallery.

What were your first impressions when you read the scripts for Season 6?

Claire Danes: It’s interesting, because the writers started trying to anticipate what the outcome would be on Election Day, and what fate would be determined. They did an extraordinary job of creating a format that would sustain us throughout this period. We were waiting, and at the midway point [of production], Trump was elected, and suddenly, the themes became very clear, and they pursued that. I think the season just collected momentum and strength as it went along. I marvel at their ability to surf these phenomena as they’re occurring, almost in real time.

I imagine a good deal of the arc must have been outlined before you began shooting the season.

Danes: Yeah, they have a pretty sound sense of how we’re going to start, but invariably, they get outpaced by filming, and they end up writing as we film. It’s a high wire act.

Mandy Patinkin: They stay fairly flexible, and it is fluid. They certainly have a clear structure, where Claire would be working, the nature of her job, and defending this young man, and what would happen to the young man. But then, as the world around us changed very quickly, they went with the world, not with previous conceptions…

Danes: …Adapted to that tack.

Patinkin: Yeah. I like that way of not having everything in front of us.

A new portrait and a quote of Claire were released by Variety earlier today! They’re part of the promotion for their series Variety: Actors on Actors, in which Claire has appeared before. She’ll be talking to another actress or actor from the Drama category, but at this point I have no idea who that will be. Our galley has been updated with the new image, and we’ll let you know if anything else comes out!

“When Trump was elected the themes of the season became a lot more clear. I don’t think any of us were happy with that particular result. [But] we understood where our country was going and what we needed to
comment on.”
