Claire Danes Says Filming 'A Kid Like Jake' Was 'Wonderful Relief' from 'Homeland' - Watch Trailer!

Claire Danes rocks a floral dress as she strikes a pose backstage at Day Two of the 2018 Vulture Festival presented By AT&T at Milk Studios on Sunday (May 20) in New York City.

The 39-year-old actress was joined by her A Kid Like Jake co-star Jim Parsons, director Silas Howard, and writer Daniel Pearle, who also wrote the play the film is based on.

A Kid Like Jake explores the difficulties two parents (Claire and Jim) face while dealing with the prospect of sending their gender-questioning 4-year-old to kindergarten.

“We work really intensely on our respective television gigs, but it’s also a really wonderful relief to experiment with a different style of storytelling and a different character,” Claire expressed about taking a break from her Homeland character. “I mean I love my Carrie, but we need some time apart.”
