“The premiere last night sets up Season 2, just reacquainting you with where the characters are since you last saw them. But by the time you see this week’s episode – let me tell you, by the time I got to the end of the script I was like, ‘No way.’”
“I think audiences were hungry for a show like this because it’s so pertinent to what is going on in the world. Anybody who stays on top of current events has heard about the show’s topics before but, watching Homeland, they are actually transported into the situation and that’s what makes the show so powerful.”
“There’s an online game where the premise is essentially to stop Abu Nazir- and you should see how many people are involved and how excited they are to stop him! I’m like ‘poor Abu, poor me,’ ’cause whether or not you consider Abu Nazir the villain really depends on how you look it. This season you will see much more of his influence in the system.”
The Show has Fans in High Places
“I was very excited to hear that Homeland is one of President Obama’s favorite shows- I don’t think many actors get to experience being part of something so special. I’m still waiting for my invitation to the White House, though.”
It’s More Intense than Season 1
“You are in for a treat because it’s unbelievable how far they’re pushing the limits this season. You’ll see more action and involvement from all the characters, delving deeper into their relationships and really discovering all of their connections and secrets that might answer some of the questions that were created in Season 1. To be very honest, I believe the second season tops the first. It’ll be a lot of fun.”
