Claire Danes: First Choice Actress for 'Homeland'!

Claire Danes gets a breath of fresh air as she heads out on Wednesday (May 15) in New York City.

It was recently announced that the 34-year-old Homeland actress’ co-star Morena Baccarin is expecting her first child with her husband Austin Chick!

“There were some names from the studio that were older, and good actresses, but for [Homeland co-creator] Alex Gansa, his first choice was always Claire,” Homeland casting director Junie Lowry-Johnson told New York Magazine. Her face is expressive, but she also really knows how to be blank sometimes. She knows how to act like she did in Temple Grandin. She has a real gift for portraying these interior conditions.”
