Clare Danes

Claire Danes, who won for best actress in a TV drama for her role as an unstable CIA agent in Showtime’s "Homeland," said, "It's very unusual that I get to take a character like this on. She's so layered, so dynamic. As an actor, I certainly got a workout this season. They asked me to do more than I've ever been asked to do. As an American, when I started learning about the CIA and the people within that world, I was really struck by their patriotism. It's something I've taken for granted."
