Invasion of the body doubles.
Claire Danes knew she had a big task in front of her when she announced her baby bump would NOT throw off the schedule of Homeland.
And now we know why.
Here's what a source said:
"She has a belly-double now. A very nice lady who turns up occasionally to reshoot some of Claire's scenes. She's called Meredith and I've got to know her quite well… (Danes is) doing unbelievable well with the pregnancy, although she's showing considerably now. She's extremely apologetic about the timing - which, obviously, isn't ideal - but as we all know, you don't time these things, do you? She didn't want the story to be compromised, so you won't suddenly see her character Carrie sitting behind a desk and typing with her belly hidden or anything like that."
Smart move from the show runners in thinking ahead!!
We're obviously thrilled that Danes has inherited the baby bump, but obviously it might cause some friction for a television show - especially now with the expectations facing the new season.
We think they'll pull through. After all, there's no place like home…land.
