The latest in Homeland’s series of videos following the actors and actresses describing their roles within the drama has hit the Internet today, and follows actor Damian Lewis discussing the evolution of Nick Brody. Lewis explains Brody’s past as a marine who was a prisoner of war for eight years and who was indoctrinated in his captors' belief in Islam.
The video gives us moments with Brody during his incarceration when he is bearded and dirty and highlights him as a character who eventually finds religion as a salvation and becomes a mentor to a young boy named Issa, who later dies. It’s the latter that has provided many of Brody’s complicated relationships and decision-making processes throughout the series. As Lewis points out, he didn’t want to play a marine who simply becomes a turncoat, and Brody’s character, like most of the characters in Homeland, is extremely complicated and well-drawn.
The interview preview also gets into Brody’s relationship with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in the drama. Lewis says the two clung together in Season 2, having determined they shared the characteristics of two “broken-winged birds.” Most of the stuff in the interview talks about the character leading up to Season 3, but Lewis does say we won’t see Brody as a congressman or marine in the new season and that there will be plenty of twists and turns. Honestly, that isn’t really enough information to truly tide me over before the new series premiere, but on the bright side, there isn’t all that long to wait for Season 3. The new season premieres on Showtime on Sunday, September 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
Just about a week ago, Showtime premiered two other videos told from the perspectives of Danes and Mandy Patinkin, who play Carrie and Saul in the series. Here’s Danes’ big interview leading into Season 3.
Despite these videos, unless you were one of the people who caught the leaked Season 3 premiere episode of Homeland, we don’t know a ton about the direction of the new season of the drama. The subscription cable network has released some posters for the new season and the first full trailer, which is wildly emotional. All of these things have given us some puzzle pieces we can attempt to work out before the new episodes begin airing, but it might just be easier to tune in to the subscription cable channel when Homeland hits the network at the end of the month.
