Homeland star to matriculate

By Linda Qiu

Actress Claire Danes may have gone Ivy League, but her Homeland costar Morgan Saylor will join the class of 2018 next fall.

The 19-year-old actress plays Dana Brody, the moody teenage daughter of Marine sergeant-turned-al-Qaeda-operative Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) on the critically acclaimed Showtime thriller.

Saylor told New York magazine yesterday that she deferred enrollment for a year to focus on acting. “But I really would like to go. The urge is, like, eating me more so, especially being in L.A. with all these actor people,” she said.

Saylor plans to “take it slowly” and isn’t committed to completing the full four years, she told BULLETT Media. Danes, who stars on Homeland as bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, also took time off before studying at Yale University for two years.
