Homeland star Claire Danes has revealed there is a little part of her that is "unsure" Brody has really been killed off. 

35-year-old Claire Danes, who stars as CIA agent Carrie in Homeland, had admitted that the reality of Brody's (Damian Lewis) departure from the show will only sink in when she begins filming the next season of the show.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar Danes said: "I'm going to miss him. A lot of people, even my friends, were saying, 'Is he really dead?

"And it's absurd, but I think there's a part of me that is also a little unsure. I'll really start to believe it when we're filming and he's not there.

"That's going to be hard and sad. I loved working with him and he carried half the weight of the show. So I'm a little bit daunted about what that means for me."
