Carrie Mathison is getting a new man.
Yes, the powers that be are making sure that Claire Danes’ Homeland heroine has something pretty to look during the show’s upcoming Berlin-set fifth season.
Enter German-born actor Alexander Fehling (Young Goethe in Love). He will play a new love interest for Carrie, who will be on a self-imposed exile in Europe when the action resumes this fall (two years will have transpired since the fourth season finale, btw). His lawyer-character will be one of five – five! – new additions to the cast, though (War of the Worlds’ Miranda Otto also will be on hand, FYI, as the CIA’s station chief in the German capital).
