Homeland’s Morgan Saylor Talks Movies, Music—and Pies (Allure)

Some girls have all the luck. Some girls have all the pain. At 19, Morgan Saylor has enjoyed plenty of the former and displayed plenty of the latter. Best known for her unsettling portrayal of disaffected teen Dana Brody on Homeland, she stars this month in the indie film Jamie Marks Is Dead, a high-school romance with a dark, supernatural edge. Saylor is retro, but without affectation. She bakes, collects vinyl, and loads actual film in her camera. Kids these days.

What attracted you to this movie and this role? “She’s so confident. She’s so cool. She’s really weird and collects rocks, but she’s sure of herself in these weird ways. And [director] Carter Smith. I’d seen his shorts Bugcrush and Yearbook, which I thought were so well done. He’s very passionate, and he has a crazy-great mind for film and the look and the mood, being such an experienced photographer.”

You also just worked with Kevin Costner on McFarland, a high-school sports drama from Disney. I’m guessing “moody” is not the best adjective for this one. “It’s very, very different. Probably opposite. I play Kevin’s daughter. She’s 14 going on 15. She wears a lot of pink. It’s a family film. It’s fun and makes you smile.”

You may be the only 19-year-old New Yorker who cooks. “For my eighteenth birthday, [Homeland costar] Morena Baccarin gave me The New York Times Cookbook, which is so thick and has everything you could ever imagine. I like to make pies. That’s kind of my new obsession—peach, blueberry, apple, strawberry. I make a really good pumpkin pie with real pumpkin.”

What music do you listen to? “I guess this is old-school. I like records. My favorite is Simon and Garfunkel. Bookends is my favorite album of all time [and] ‘America’ is my favorite song.”

You say you read on the train to and from your Brooklyn apartment. Current titles? “In my backpack right now is Frankenstein. Classic.”

What do you think accounted for all the vitriol against your Homeland character? “I think it’s [because] she’s a teenager, [and] teenagers are annoying. She’s very angsty…poor girl. It was also kind of a distraction from the main plot. Why do we have to watch it? Where’s Brody? I think it’s OK that people have opinions. It’s healthy.”

What’s on your agenda? “I’m going to go to the University of Chicago. I’ve deferred. I took one gap year, and they have just approved a second deferral. Hopefully I’ll be going next fall.”

So back to pies. Crisco or butter? “I tried the Crisco, and I hated it. Hated it! I couldn’t roll it out. I’m a butter girl for my piecrusts.”
