Emmys: Salute to Henry Bromell’s Legacy

Win for 'Homeland' seg is fitting closer to distinguished career

Emmy voters gave a final nod to veteran scribe Henry Bromell in selected his “Q&A” episode of “Homeland” for the drama writing trophy.

Bromell died in March at the age of 65 of a heart condition, just as production was beginning on the third season of “Homeland.” His widow, Sarah Bromell, accepted his award and noted how hard he and the “Homeland” crew worked on the episode that was pivotal for season two as it encompassed the first open confrontation between Claire Danes’ Carrie Mathison and Damian Lewis’ Nicholas Brody.

“It was like a little movie and it was really difficult to figure out how to do it,” Bromell said. “They found a really beautiful solution to the problem and a turning point. It was a huge puzzle piece in the whole season.”

Bromell noted that “Homeland” was a fitting closer to her husband’s career, which included stints on such prestige shows as “Homicide,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “Northern Exposure.” His father had been a CIA station chief overseas, and he had deep interest in foreign affairs as a result.

Danes, accepting her second straight award for lead drama actress, remembered Bromell in her remarks.

“He was a brilliant person and so kind, and we continue to think of him every day as we work on the show he helped define,” she said.
