On her character Carrie Mathison on Homeland: "You know, I don't think of her as female," says Danes. "I'm playing a person. I'm playing a person. She's just not defined at all by her sex. She is defined by her ideals, by her patriotism, by her commitment to righting wrongs, by her relationship to her mental condition [but] it's just really beyond the more conventional stereotypes about what it is to be a woman in this world."
