Claire Danes loves that President Barack Obama is a fan of her show “Homeland.”

“No pressure,” the actress said backstage after her win for lead actress in a drama series at Sunday’s Emmy Awards. “It’s way cool that he is a fan. It speaks to the relevancy of the show and it’s hugely validating.

Obama has said the Showtime series about a Marine returning home after being held as a POW, and who is now suspected by a CIA agent as working for al Qaeda, is his favorite.
