‘Homeland’ star Claire Danes reveals love of techno music and Berlin’s Berghain club – watch

Actress tells Ellen DeGeneres how she attended a fetish party at the famed club

Actress Claire Danes recently appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show where she revealed that she’s a big fan of techno music.

The Homeland star, who rose to fame in the 1990s with cult TV show My So-Called Life, told Ellen that she “had a real aversion to” techno music at first but that the city of Berlin – where the fifth season of Homeland will be set – altered her opinion.

“I thought that heavy metal and techno were the two genres of music that I just had no tolerance for, right?” Danes said. “You’ll go to Berlin, you might change your mind. You get sucked in.”


Of the city’s famed Berghain night club, she continued: “It’s amazing; it’s the best place on Earth. I was so scared when I first went in. Really, I had acute anxiety because I didn’t know what to expect. But it’s a blast and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.”

Danes also revealed that she once attended a fetish party at the club.

Season Five of Homeland is set to premiere on US network Showtime on October 4. In the UK, the show airs on Channel 4.

Danes, who has won two Emmys and two Golden Globes for her performance as Carrie Mathison, will once again be joined by Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson and Rupert Friend as Peter Quinn.
