Claire Danes to quit Homeland after Season 3?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope this is just random gossip or a ploy for her to get a bigger paycheck. I love Homeland. This is from the National Enquirer, but they also blew the lid off the John Edwards story, so you cannot discount them simply because they are a gossip magazine......
Big shocker for ‘Homeland’ fans – Claire Danes is secretly planning to leave the show after next season to be a full-time mom! Even though series execs doubled her salary, Claire wants to stay home with her first child, Cyrus Michael Christopher Dancy, who was born Dec. 17, sources say.
“Claire has finally discovered the one thing she loves more than acting – being a mom!” an insider close to ‘Homeland’ told The Enquirer. “Before Cyrus was born, Claire would never have thought about giving up her role on ‘Homeland’ because she thought she’s be able to juggle her job with being a mom. But now she doesn’t want to leave her son.”
“Claire and Hugh have agreed that he’ll continue working on ‘Hannibal’ [Dancy’s new NBS show], as well as other acting jobs, if she decided to follow through with her plans to leave ‘Homeland’.”
After executives learned Claire might walk, they doubled her salary to $220,000 an episode as an inducement to stay for the upcoming season.
Despite the pay raise, “Claire is having regrets about signing on for another season… it’s very likely the execs will eventually offer Claire another huge pay raise if she’ll agree to stay for Season 4, but she’s still leaning towards leaving. Now that she’s a mom, she’s come to realize that the time with her son is invaluable. Besides that, she’s one of the hottest tickets in Hollywood these days. She knows that she can go back to acting any time she wants.”
