When the fourth season of the Showtime series “Homeland” began Oct. 5, Blugold alumni and friends may have recognized a familiar face among its cast.

Laila Robins, a 1981 UW-Eau Claire music graduate and successful film, television and theater actress, signed on to the Emmy Award-winning series in June. She plays Martha Boyd, U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, joining series regulars Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend.

This season of the CIA spy thriller is being filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
