Claire Danes claims her earliest memories were from before she could even speak as a young child.
Claire Danes' early memories
Claire Danes can remember being a baby.
The 'Homeland' actress - who is expecting her first child with husband Hugh Dancy - claims to clearly recall being held uncomfortably as an infant and wishing she could speak in order to articulate her discomfort.
She said: ''I have two very early memories and both were before I could speak.
''The first was being held by a friend of my parents - and they obviously weren't familiar with holding babies.
''They were holding me in an awkward way and I remember thinking it was very frustrating because I couldn't communicate with them to say how I wanted to be held.
''Around the same time, I also remember trying all sorts of methods to get my message across to my mum, and she was just as frustrated as I was because she didn't understand me.
''I remember thinking that this was a drag and things would be more efficient when I could talk.''
Claire felt ''trapped'' by her inability to articulate herself properly.
She added in an interview with Grazia magazine: ''I felt very trapped by the limitations of being a young person.''
People don't usually remember events until the ages of around three or four.
