Claire Danes Brings Son Cyrus to ‘Homeland’s’ Set
Break out the scrapbook — it’s baby’s first set visit!
Claire Danes brought her six-month-old baby boy, Cyrus, along for a day of filming the third season of her hit TV drama Homeland in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday.
Taking a breather between shots, Danes, 34, doted on and kissed her chubby-cheeked little man, who is her first child with husband Hugh Dancy, 38. Later, the little one laid in the arms of a pal as Danes dedicated some time to an embroidery project.
When the cameras were rolling, Danes was back in character as Homeland’s Carrie Mathison, the bipolar but brilliant CIA agent who’s committed her life to fighting terrorism. The critically acclaimed Showtime series took home three Golden Globes earlier this year, including a second best actress in a drama series trophy for Danes.
In her acceptance speech, she thanked her then-newborn son, who was in utero throughout the filming of Homeland’s second season.
“I have to thank our son Cyrus, who’s upstairs with my parents,” she gushed. “Thank you for joining me throughout this whole process and being so game in fighting this war against terrorism.”
