Claire Danes gets star on Hollywood ‘Walk of Fame’
LOS ANGELES, United States—Actress Claire Danes, star of the TV series “Homeland,” received a star on Hollywood’s “Walk of Fame” Thursday.
“This is huge and wonderful,” Danes, who plays CIA officer Carrie Mathison on the show, said during a brief ceremony.
“This is really cool,” she said.
Danes, 36, rose to fame in the 1990s as the teen star of TV show “My So-Called Life,” and hit the big screen with such films as “Romeo + Juliet” and “The Hours.”
She thanked those who had helped her career along, especially her parents, who moved from New York to Los Angeles so their daughter could try her luck at auditions.
Danes said the stars lining iconic Hollywood Boulevard were a “wonderful tradition.”
“There’s so much low and high in what we do. If I’m here it’s because I have made a connection that is real. I was here and you were here with me,” she told her fans.
