       Danes is ready to take on a new role, she says. But more than anything, when she thinks about life after years of location hopping (as well as Berlin, Homeland has filmed in North Carolina and Tel Aviv; Hannibal, Dancy’s previous show, shot in Toronto), she is looking forward to nesting and establishing routines. That involves moving into the West Village townhouse that she and Dancy have been renovating “forever”, and play dates for Cyrus. 

    There is now time to reflect on what her perfect day would be: breakfast with Cyrus and Dancy, a walk to The Whitney Museum, a ramble on the High Line, a raspberry-vanilla shaved ice, a nap with Cyrus, rounded out by an evening with The Litwits.

    As for Carrie, will she ever get the quiet life she thinks she wants, book club and all? “I don’t know. She’s not a quiet person,” says Danes. “But I would like a little bit of happiness for the old broad.” Season 5 of Homeland is on Showtime now

    “It’s RARE to find a story that is driven by a FEMALE character. We tend to be CONDUITS for the leading man”

    As desperate as Homeland fans are for each new episode, they are also wary of the show’s inevitable end – as is Danes. “I’m very motivated to make it as excellent and complete a series as we can. That’s the
    hope,” she says. “I know I’m going to feel bereft.” She is all too aware that characters like Carrie don’t come along often, let alone characters apt to yield two Emmys, two Golden Globes, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “It’s rare to find a story that is driven by a female character,” she says.
    “We tend to be conduits for
    change in the leading role, who is a man.” She is “thrilled” that equal pay is entering public discussion: “It’s not just about opportunity, it’s about financial parity.”
