Producers and core cast members take a field trip to Washington, D.C. every year to connect with key players in the intelligence and national security community. Those meetings help set the tone and the storyline for the Showtime drama that has been remarkably — sometimes eerily — prescient about developments in the war on terror over its five seasons to date.
This year, part of “Homeland’s” fact-finding mission was a visit to the National September 11 Memorial Museum, erected on the site in lower Manhattan where the World Trade Center towers once stood.
“Homeland” showrunner Alex Gansa, exec producer Howard Gordon and star Mandy Patinkin brought family members and a few friends along for the Oct. 5 tour led by museum president and CEO Joe Daniels. The close-up look at twisted steel girders and other artifacts from the devastation was a searing experience for the group, as

She continued to act as she grew, including appearing as the young Jane Eyre in a 1934 adaptation of the novel. Darling also made a name for herself on Broadway, starring in the debut of Rodgers and Hammerstein musical classic "Carousel" in 1945, in which she originated the role of Carrie Pipperidge.
In the 1970s, Darling moved to Dublin, Ireland,
How did you meet Rodgers and Hammerstein?
I was very young; I had just graduated high school and was on my way to become a veterinarian. Animals were the light of my life. But I was born singing — it was a gift. I had studied some acting and dancing at the Pittsburgh Playhouse during the summer. So I went to an audition in New York with my parents on vacation. A pianist I’d worked with at the playhouse told me a casting director for Rodgers and Hammerstein was having open auditions. I didn’t even know who Rodgers and Hammerstein were — I was that green.
I take it the audition went well.
