I was pregnant for the second season. And as the season progressed and as my baby progressed, it got… they got more action packed.
There was a lot of running towards the end.
Yeah. I mean at one point we were filming in an old sewage factory. I was kidnapped, I was chained to a pipe. It was 4am. I was 7 and a half months pregnant and I was like…
Claire, how difficult for you was the death of Damian Lewis’ character, Brody, at the end of Homeland's last season?
SARAH PAULSON: Oh, I can’t even talk about that. Not that you’re asking me!
KERI RUSSELL: You ask me, that was the hardest to deal with!
CLAIRE DANES: [Killing him] was supposed to happen in the second season. Then the Carrie-Brody relationship became so captivating for audiences that Showtime wanted to extend it. We had been anticipating the finale for quite a while. We shot the scene [where Brody is hanged] on our final day working in Morocco. It was all very heightened, literally. The crane broke at one point. I still don’t think I’ve really processed it. I go back to work in a month, and I think it’ll occur to me then that he’s really gone. It’ll be a very different environment when we return and Damian, whom I love, isn’t there.
