Claire Danes - Claire Danes Had To Readjust To Film

Claire Danes needed to readjust her mindset when she went from film to television acting.

The New York-born actress admits it was a struggle for her to go into TV series 'Homeland' because she had worked in ''so many'' movies in the past.

She said: ''I had to readjust my mindset, having made so many movies, and it's like I've just discovered albums for the first time, having grown up listening to singles.''

The Hollywood A-lister, who won a Golden Globe for her role in the thriller TV series says the move to the small screen was hard, but satisfying.

She said: ''It's a really liberating experience, knowing that you can just take your time, and get so many little nuances, so many of life's complications, across without worrying about whether or not people are getting numb buttocks.''

While Claire's last regular TV gig was in 1994 on the drama 'My So-called Life' - she says more screen actors are now making the switch to TV.

She said: ''There was a time when an actor would think twice about signing up for a TV movie, most seeing it as very much a B-list world ...Now, it's almost the other way around. Agents are all searching for the next Sopranos, the next Wire, Boardwalk Empire or Mildred Pierce. It's hilarious. But it's also, as I say, very liberating.''
