Over at Jewcy, Stephanie Butnick has the scoop on Claire Danes, who, in addition to picking an Emmy last night for her role in the Israeli-inspired show Homeland, also did a fashion shoot for the Times’ oddly-named T Magazine in Tel Aviv.

As it’s been documented on the Twitter machine, Danes is high on the crush list of The Scroll (my mother is not on Twitter, so this is where my Gentile crushes get fawned over).

In the interview, she spoke about her character as well as her first two trips to Israel. Check out the highlights here.
