Here is what the 34-year-old Homeland actress had to share with the mag:
On her frequent nude scenes: “I had my boundaries, and I had to have a conversation with myself about where I wanted to be true to the material and also to myself. There were things that I wouldn’t do and certain levels of nudity that I was not comfortable with, and I was really blunt with them about it.”
On expecting her first child while filming Homeland: “I am not going to be pregnant on the show.”
On the obstacles she faced growing up helping shape who she is today: “Being different is something that eventually helps you and singles you out. I remember seeing a squirrel for the first time in school and not knowing how to say it in English, saying it in Portuguese, and everybody kind of looking at me really strangely. It rocks your world. Moving countries is a huge, traumatic experience, but at the same time it made me really adaptable and really fearless.”
