If you’ve seen the first two episodes of Season 3 of “Homeland” on Showtime, you know big things are happening with one of the show’s female stars.
She tried to kill herself. She’s having sex with someone she met in rehab. She’s clashing with a parent.
No, these aren’t things happening to Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes). She’s got her own troubles. But Dana Brody – teenage daughter of a fugitive the CIA is working to hunt down – has moved further into the spotlight this season, as the plot thickens on the most prominent TV series ever filmed in Charlotte.
Morgan Saylor, who plays Dana, recently wrapped her scenes for the 12-episode run that will conclude in December, after several months of living in the NoDa and Dilworth neighborhoods.
Just two weeks shy of her 19th birthday, the Atlanta native spoke to the Observer Wednesday about her expanded role, her real parents’ reaction to her first on-screen love scene, and her off-camera relationship with her TV mom.
