Claire Danes to return to series TV

By Alexandra Heilbron on September 14, 2011 | 6 Comments

After winning an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance in the TV movie Temple Grandin earlier this year, Claire Danes has decided to return to series TV. Danes actually got her start in the TV series My So-Called Life in 1994, and won her first Golden Globe for her portrayal of angsty teen Angela Chase in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed show. Since then she’s steered clear of television work, instead appearing in dozens of feature films, including Romeo + Juliet opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, but she’s been most awarded for her television work. She’ll play CIA officer Carrie Anderson in the new Showtime series Homeland, which debuts October 2nd and co-stars Damian Lewis of Band of Brothers.

    But hey, lots of movie actors are going to TV. See Ben Bratt or Glenn Close or Kiera Sedgwick, etc..
    She’s decent.

    She’s okay. I love her husband (Hugh Dancy) though. He’s amazing.

    First saw her in My So-Called Life and she was so good. She was excellent playing Temple Grandin too. She’s very versatile.
