Actress Claire Danes arrives in Israel


Actress Claire Danes has landed in Israel to film scenes for a new television series based on an Israeli show.

Danes arrived Monday in Israelto film the Fox television series “Patriots,” based on the Israeli series “Kidnapped,” in which Israeli soldiers return after 17 years being held as POWs in Lebanon.

In the American series, Danes plays Carrie Anderson, a bipolar CIA agent who is suspicious of a U.S. Marine who miraculously reappears after being taken prisoner and presumed dead during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Filming began Wednesday in the Arab-Israeli village of Barta’a, near Haifa, which was turned into an authentic Iraqi street, Ynet reported.

Danes will stay in both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Ynet reported.

Last month she won a Golden Globe for best actress in the HBO production of “Temple Grandin.”
