American actress Claire Danes spoke on the Conan O'Brien show last Wednesday about her filming in Israel for the TV show Homeland. Danes stated: "It was wonderful. I loved it," said Danes of Israel. "And the big surprise is that Tel Aviv is like a party town. Kind of the most intense party town I've ever been to. And I realize because it is very stressful there. It's rather fraught and people are kind of tense and they need to blow off some stream. And they do. The bars are hopping." The TV show Homeland is an American version of the Israeli TV show Hatufim.
