On expecting her first child:
“I am not going to be pregnant on the show.”
On Joe Biden”s interest in the series:
“Apparently, in his Monday morning security meetings, Vice President Biden will talk about the show, how realistic it is. I was floored by that-here are the leaders of our nation talking about our show!”
On “Homeland”s” Success:
“You pinch yourself for a long time. Every time our season comes out, I kind of feel like, “Okay- this is the one that everybody”s going to hate. This is where we go to, like, being the show that everybody doesn”t like…” And then it doesn”t seem to happen.”
On her frequent nude scenes:
“I had my boundaries, and I had to have a conversation with myself about where I wanted to be true to the material and also to myself. There were things that I wouldn”t do and certain levels of nudity that I was not comfortable with, and I was really blunt with them about it.”
On her past struggles:
“Being different is something that eventually helps you and singles you out. I remember seeing a squirrel for the first time in school and not knowing how to say it in English, saying it in Portuguese, and everybody kind of looking at me really strangely. It rocks your world. Moving countries is a huge, traumatic experience, but at the same time it made me really adaptable and really fearless.”
