The actress said she’s ready to let go of her character, Carrie Mathison, counterterrorism expert with bipolar disorder who has endured a great deal through the years.
“She’s a lot, this Carrie freakin’ Mathison,” Danes said. “I’ll be ready for a reprieve from that.”
Danes also shared some personal news.
“I am pregnant,” she told Stern. “I am deep into my second trimester.”
It will be a second child for Danes and her husband, actor Hugh Dancy.
