“Homeland” star Claire Danes covers the november 2013 issue of Interview magazine in Christian Dior photographed by Fabien Baron and styled by Karl Templer.
And we are LOVING IT. What a FABULOUS way to style her looks.
On working in television: “I’d actually only done one series before Homeland—and I was 14 when I did it, and we only made 19 episodes—so Homeland has really been my first time aging with a character and experiencing her develop and change. I know that this is not an uncommon story, but I got excited again about television from watching The Wire. That show blew me away; I just could not believe how enormous and layered this world was that they’d created, and how deeply I could delve into it. It was just so thrilling to watch a show like that as an audience member that I became interested in getting involved in something like that on the other side, as a performer. But working on Homeland has been very rewarding. I really enjoy the relationship that an actor has with a team of writers on a show like ours. It’s a very intimate process. You really have to work in tandem.”
On her character Carrie: “She is intuitive, and it’s the paradox of the show that she’s in a clandestine service and in a world of evasion and indirectness and secrecy, but she herself is an incredibly candid, honest, rigorous person. I mean, it’s preposterous at times, but it’s fun because the stakes are always so impossibly high. It’s like jumping on a trampoline—there’s just a lot going on—and those scenes give you a lot of power and license to go wherever you need to go. We have set our own rules, though, as far as what we will do and won’t do, and we’re very careful about them. We know where the lines are and we don’t want to stray too far outside of them.”

Now we want her to play a coked-out model in the late ’70s. We’re thinking she shouldn’t try to rock that gold eyeshadow in real life, though.
