Claire Danes Covers 'Capitol File' May/June 2012

Claire Danes rocks a Sportmax trench coat and Pomellato necklace on the cover of Capitol File‘s May/June issue.

Here’s what the 33-year-old Homeland star had to share:

On researching her role, a CIA officer secretly suffering from bipolar disorder: “I burrowed into a lot of literature. I like nerding out and getting a chance to delve into something I otherwise wouldn’t learn about … I’ve been in therapy forever – I’m an armchair therapist at the very least. More seriously, acting and psychology are not unrelated. They’re both examinations of the human spirits. I’m really curious as to how people work, particularly people with certain conditions that make them different to the rest of us.”

On filming in Charlotte, N.C.: “It’s beautiful and the people are almost unnervingly friendly. They have a kind of graciousness that I really appreciate. [There's also] a great fried chicken joint three blocks from home. There’s a lot to be said for the Southern way.”

On her cast mates: “I adore everybody I work with. But it’s very intense; we’re not whistling while we work. [Co-star Mandy Patinkin is] just dreamy; I’m in constant awe of what he can do. And if I’m nervous about a scene or I think it’s particularly tricky, I just trust that he’ll see me through. He’s a very strong partner.”
