Director Michael Cuesta had originally considered actor Rupert Friend when casting the lead role of Sherlock Holmes for the pilot for CBS’s Elementary in the spring of 2012. “He would have been an edgier, darker Sherlock,” Cuesta recalls. The director was taken with the actor and told the casting director, “Sorry, but I’m gonna have to cast this guy in Homeland,” which would film just a few months later.
"[Carrie and Quinn] put themselves through the mill in the name of something greater than them. Those people are quite rare and I think they find each other, they recognize each other and they stick together." - Rupert Friend
