"There is a scene in that weekend episode where it was really challenging. It’s kind of this romantic weekend that turns into an interrogation, and it’s really elaborate and layered and way too much was going on, and ultimately, Brody puts a gun to Carrie’s head. And when that happened my adrenaline just spiked and actually my heart was—I couldn’t breathe. And it was good for that take and good for that moment, but then my body took over and the opposite occurred: everything dropped and all of my senses were totally dulled. And I had the whole other half of the day to do the rest of the scene where I was supposed to still be at that pitch and that adrenalized but my body wasn’t allowing me to go there. I think my imagination just got really tripped up, when a gun went to my head I stopped being able to differentiate pretend from reality." —Claire Danes on "The Weekend"
