Mandy Patinkin called his “Homeland” co-star Claire Danes his teacher at an event in her honor. The Tony nominated actor also discussed his role on the show in an on line interview.

Danes was honored at a gala which she attended to help raise funds for New York’s P.S. 122. The school is where the actress had her first performance at the age of six.

Patinkin was also in attendance and said of working with Danes, “It was glorious from the very first second, I just loved it. There was chemistry immediately. She was riveting. All I had to do was just listen to her.”

Meanwhile the actor spoke with Gold Derby editor Daniel Montgomery about his Emmy-nominated role in the hit Showtime series “Homeland.”

Patinkin said, “It’s impossible to participate on any level in ‘Homeland’ either as an actor or a viewer and not have it affect you. If you’re paying attention to the world, you’re living in the storylines of ‘Homeland.’”

On not getting an Emmy he said, “I don’t want to campaign for an award. I love going to work. I love doing the work. Awards are complicated. Of course, it’s wonderful if we get awards, it’s good for business, it’s good for the way you feel, but I also want to feel good if there’s no award, if there’s no nomination. I want us all to feel good about how lucky we are that we get to do this work we love – who gets to do that in the world? Not a lot of people.”
