Homeland Star Claire Danes Spotted in Cape Town Shooting for Season Four
Award-winning American actress, Claire Danes has been spotted in Cape Town, South Africa, where shooting for Season Four of Homeland has begun. The hugely successful show’s lead actress, she’s been seen on set, lunching out, shopping, and doing yoga, by a number of fans that were eager to blow the cover of the beautiful blonde who plays a bi-polar CIA agent in the popular Showtime drama series.
Claire Danes, who is traveling with her two-year-old son Cyrus, is married to British actor Hugh Dancy who does not appear to be accompanying her at this stage. Last Monday she was seen having lunch at Harbour House, an iconic seafood restaurant in the picturesque Kalk Bay working harbor in False Bay. The following day, a radio DJ, Seano Loots saw her on the escalator he was using in a mall in Sea Point on the Atlantic Coast. He reported that she had her little boy with her and was clearly heading into Checkers, a very ordinary supermarket chain store. He maintained that she gave him a typical Carrie Mathison (her screen name) look that indicated she thought someone was following her! She also gave him half a smile. The same day several people tweeted that they had seen her in a yoga class in Cape Town.
Filming also began last week, and both Claire Danes and co-actor, Rupert Friend, who plays the part of elite CIA “black-ops” agent Peter Quinn, were seen at Cape Town International Airport in a lounge that had been set to look like one in Pakistan. This is in keeping with the reported storyline for Season Four that takes Carrie Mathison and her colleagues to a highly volatile CIA station in the Middle East. Clearly the area is genuinely dangerous, which is why they are shooting in Cape Town.
