The actress shoots her hit TV show Homeland on location in Charlotte, North Carolina, while British star Dancy remains at home in New York.
Dancy filmed a recurring role in small screen show The Big C, and Danes admits she often tunes in to the series when she is away.
She tells Britain's S magazine, "When I'm on my own in Charlotte feeling loney and bereft, at least I can keep watching Hugh on The Big C."
The Stardust actress also reveals her husband is a big fan of her show, in which she stars as a CIA agent, and won't let her talk about her work in case she gives away the plot.
She adds, "He won't let me talk about what I was doing at work that day. He says he doesn't want the story spoiled and I'll say, 'But I need to share my experiences with you'."
