I haven't featured Claire Danes on this blog since way back in January 2007, so now's a perfect time to revisit her.
Originally known for her role in the TV series "My So-Called Life," Claire Danes is now famous for playing Carrie Mathison, a CIA officer, in the Showtime cable channel series "Homeland." In the series, Carrie struggles with bipolar disorder while working to protect the United States from foreign terrorism. The series premiered in 2011 and has been widely acclaimed.
She's also appeared in a few movies since 2007, such as Me and Orson Welles and As Cool As I Am.
