Joining the cast of Homeland was a baptism of fire. It was like being the new boy at school. Everybody had made their bonds. Everyone knew whose jokes to laugh at and whose to ignore. I stood behind the monitors looking at Carrie and Brody and all the rest of them I had been watching on TV. And then someone says, “Go on, your turn,” and you have to step into the middle of it in front of millions of cameras. It was daunting as f***.
This changed my life.
