Claire Danes must be enjoying the opportunity to really cut loose on set!
The Homeland star usually is playing a CIA officer with bipolar disorder on a pretty intense, dramatic show.
So she's having a great time just being able to goof around in front of the camera.
"It's nice to just goof off and improvise and be a little silly. I'm getting ready for a more substantial reprieve from Homeland, which I love and continue to be inspired by – but it would be nice not to be saving the world for a second."
The commercial is for Audi and it's about her life splitting in two different directions depending on one decision:
Does she get driven somewhere, or drive herself in her own Audi?
"I am leaving set and have to be at an event very soon and all the airports are shut down, so I have to drive a great distance. In one scenario, I'm driven in a town car by a driver and in the other, I drive my own Audi, fuel-efficient diesel car. In the first scenario, everything that could go wrong, does. It's preposterously, amusingly disastrous. In the latter version, the opposite is true. I'm having an insanely delightful experience."
Getting to play with a whole bunch of puppies does sound pretty wonderful!
We'd like to do a commercial like that!
Actually, we just wanna play with real life puppies all the time!
She's one lucky lady!
