Posted Monday April 23, 2012 3:39 PM GMT

Bringing her charm to the forefront, Claire Danes graces the cover of the May/June 2012 issue of Capitol File magazine.

The 33-year-old actress looked elegant in a Sportmax Trench coat from Max Mara with a rose-gold and diamond pavé necklace by Pomellato for the Jason Bell shot front page while chatting about her hit Showtime series "Homeland" in the accompanying article.

Highlights from Miss Danes' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Capitol File!

On researching her role for Showtime’s 'Homeland':
“I burrowed into a lot of literature. I like nerding out and getting a chance to delve into something I otherwise wouldn’t learn about. I’m not particularly political. But I’m more aware of how many people fight so hard and risk so much. That’s a big deal, and it’s easy to forget or not think about at all.”

On the cast of 'Homeland':
“I adore everybody I work with, but it’s very intense; we’re not whistling while we work... I’m in constant awe of what he [Mandy Patinkin] can do. And if I’m nervous about a scene or I think it’s particularly tricky, I just trust that he’ll see me through. He’s a very strong partner.”

On shooting the show in Charlotte, North Carolina:
“It’s beautiful, and the people are almost unnervingly friendly. They have a kind of graciousness that I really appreciate. [There's] a great fried chicken joint... There’s a lot to be said for the Southern way.”
