After sweeping the dramatic acting categories at the Emmys on Sunday, "Homeland" stars Damian Lewis and Claire Danes are planning to celebrate in a very special way.
"We're going to go away to a romantic island together, just for the weekend," Lewis kidded backstage after picking up his gold statue. "When that baby is a ginger, you guys are going to have a field day."
On a more serious note he added, "The show succeeds in being a thrill ride ... it turns out that people like to feel anxious and get their pulses racing on a Sunday night. It's politically current and that grounds it in a reality -- and people are responding to it for that reason."
