Critics Pick TV’s Most Kickass Action Heroes — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick TV’s Most Kickass Action Heroes — IndieWire Survey:

From Ben Travers of Indiewire:

As much as I’d like to single out the heroic efforts of Jared Harris as Lane Pryce, my honest answer has to be Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison. Every mission is personal to the CIA, turned ex-CIA, turned-CIA-again agent, and not just because of her romantic entanglements with various team members or targets. She’s such a beacon of patriotism I’m pretty sure she only drinks red, white, and blue wines. (Presumably, her white wine turns blue when she mixes in her meds.) But Carrie gets the job done, and watching Danes go full-boar into every scene helps make them all gripping. You can feel every ounce of passion through her performance, and that’s what makes for great action: when the stakes are high, and you know it.
