Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Claire's feature, visit MaireClaire.com and pick up a copy on newsstand today(January10th). 

On Homeland:
My goal is always to do something that feels just beyond my reach, and Homeland continues to do that. Every season, they find new ways to scare me. The show is like a diamond that fell from the sky. I'll always feel slightly bludgeoned by it, but in the best way possible.

On holding out for meaningful parts, which meant not working for two years: 
It was a nightmare. I was in such agony. I had been so stimulated and energized, and I felt really robust and capable and eager. But I couldn't go back to the ingénue role or the limited secretary-type roles. I wanted to play someone who would move the story forward.

On her initial thoughts after reading the Homeland script: 
Carrie's so audacious and effectual and unaccommodating, and all these things that I'm not. I was nervous. I felt like, This is going to be a workout, and will I be able to sustain that?"

On realizing acting was her passion and pursuing it: 
My parents really empathized with our desire to express ourselves and I was so forceful and sure and annoying about it. I really insisted.
