Hugh Dancy has confessed he was such a fan of his wife Claire Danes' show Homeland he stopped talking to her in a bid to avoid spoilers.
Claire stars alongside Damien Lewis and David Harewood as CIA agent Carrie Mathison in the hit Channel 4 show and Hugh was hooked on the first series, along with its millions of viewers.
The British actor told Elle magazine: "Claire was still filming in North Carolina while I was watching the first series on telly and I had to say to her, 'Obviously I care about what you do, but you're going to have to stop telling me, because I would rather watch it once a week than actually talk to you'."
The 33-year-old actress has just confirmed she is expecting their first child.
Hugh joked: "Now she's doing the second season, I recognise that I probably need to focus more on our marriage than my own TV viewing!"
