“It’s really fun to play Carrie because she’s so unapologetic about striving for the things she wants,” she recently told The Independent. “So often women have to equivocate or put other’s needs before our own and she just doesn’t do that. She’s not defined by her sex, she doesn’t put up with shit. She doesn’t conform to conventional social standards. That’s very liberating.”
Danes won her first Golden Globe in 1994, Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama), for her work on My So-Called Life. She also has Golden Globe wins for Best Actress (Miniseries or Television Film) for Temple Grandin in 2010, as well as in 2012 and 2013 for her role as Carrie Mathison on Homeland.
Danes has also won three Emmy Awards and two Screen Actors Guild Awards.
