Claire Danes: 'I Hated Filming Homeland Love Scenes While Pregnant'

Claire Danes has mixed emotions about the second season of her hit show Homeland - because she had to shoot late-night action sequences and love scenes while pregnant with her son Cyrus.

The actress admits she was uncomfortable throughout the shoot and felt even her unborn baby was protesting as she got closer to her due date in December, 2012.

She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "As my baby progressed, the show got more action-packed. At one point, we were shooting in an old sewage factory. I was kidnapped, I was chained to a pipe, it was 4am, I was seven-and-a-half months pregnant, and I was like, 'This sucks'... At one point, the baby was on my sciatic nerve.

"I also had to do love scenes pregnant... At the very end, I was a month-and-a-half shy of popping, and I was doing a romantic scene... and Cyrus was really active. It was late at night, it was after dinner, and (my son) was going crazy in my belly. It was like he was protesting on my husband's behalf or something. That was hard."
