On her "Homeland" character Carrie Mathison:
"She has struggled with some memory loss. Her brain is slightly dulled. But she has achieved some stasis , which had probably become desirable."
On filming the first season of "Homeland" in the Middle East:
"The tension was palpable but I didn't ever feel particularly threatened. It has been a lot more fun and cosmopolitan than I had anticipated. The night life is incredibly alive and there is an extremeley positive and generous spirit towards us, quite at odds with what some might have imagined."
On enjoying her time in Tel Aviv:
"I went to the beach a couple times and to Jaffa, the old port city of Tel Aviv."
