Claire Danes' secret 'belly double' is revealed

Homeland actress Claire Danes finds ingenious ways not to look pregnant on screen

Pregnancy used to put a great many actresses out of work, but that won’t happen to Claire Danes. Damian Lewis, her co-star in Homeland, discloses that she and the special effects boys on the series have just found an ingenious way around her condition.

“We’re going to have to use CGI to flatten her belly occasionally,” Lewis admits. He says, too, that she has a “belly double”. “A very nice lady, who turns up occasionally to reshoot some of Claire’s scenes,” he adds, matter-of- factly.

Claire, who is due her baby last this year, referred to her actor husband Hugh Dancy as "my husband, my love, my life, my baby daddy" at the Emmy awards last Sunday where she won best actress for her role in series one of Homeland.

Homeland returns to RTE2 tonight at 9 pm
