Claire + Danes
Claire + Danes = great smell. In other words, Claire Danes smells great. Ever since her breakthrough in Romeo + Juliet, where she was only 18 years old, she seemed like a girl with an excellent odor. Even after 8 seasons of Homeland, shot mostly in the Middle East, she still seems like a perfect casting for the tango girl in Scent of a Woman. What is Claire's secret? And most important, what does Claire smell like? This could be answered only by Hugh Dancy, Claire's husband and the guy who played Will Graham in the TV show Hannibal. In Hannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter is messing with Graham's head. So to truly understand what Claire actually smells like, we should get into Hugh Dancy's head.
Hugh Dancy is mostly known for working with the amazing Danish actor who played Hannibal in Hannibal. So we should check out all the people who have worked alongside great Danes along the years, and form a timeline. That's what Carrie from Homeland would do in this situation. Let's just call each co-worker "Claris".
Hans Christian Andersen's Claris
King Diamond's Claris
King Diamond's Claris are, according to The BNR Metal Pages, the guitarists Hank Shermann and Michael Denner. They all formed together the Danish metal band Mercyful Fate and their first big album, Melissa, came out 1983. Maybe this Melissa girl is Claris? Sounds just like molasses.
Lars Ulrich's Claris
Lars von Trier's Claris
So we have shit, molasses, roses & snow. This is so obvious. These are the main characters in As Good as It Gets. Jack Nicholson is shit, Cuba is molasses, Greg Kinnear is roses because he is gay, and Helen Hunt is Snow White. This is what Claire fucking smells like. As Good as It Gets.
And Hannibal had Claris.
And Claris had her Hannibal.
And no, I have nothing better to do with my time.
