Claire Danes might be the best actress on TV.
Her role as Carrie Mathison on Showtime’s Homeland has provided her a chance to show off all her talents: she’s brilliant, yet insane; gorgeous, yet frail; composed, yet unstable; and you’re never quite sure when (if?) she has all her marbles. Plus, she cries a lot. Like, non-stop Adele a lot, something Danes has been a pro at ever since the early 1990s, when she appeared in My So-Called Life (Brian > Jordan) and Little Women.
Some very smart people decided to put together a collection of her finest tear-soaked scenes on Tumblr, a series they’ve dubbed “The Claire Danes Cry Face Project.” Their goal: “When Claire Danes cries on film, we document it.” That they have, and for doing so, we’d like to say: HOLLA.
