RICHMOND, Va. -- Award-winning actress Claire Danes, who is in Richmond filming season 7 of "Homeland," posted a photo on Instagram Sunday night of herself enjoying a local delicacy: pie.

"An ENTIRELY selfless offering to our crazy bananas amazing crew. I am in endless awe of their skills and stamina," Danes wrote. "And no, of COURSE, I didn’t stick my fat face in every single one of these works of art. #properpie #homelandcrew🙌"

Proper Pie Co. posted on Facebook that the actress "bought a whole mess of pies as an early Thanksgiving thank you" for crew members.

Danes, who apparently joined Instagram earlier this month, has been posting photos of her time in Virginia.

Her second post on the social network shows golden leaves along a wooded drive with the caption "Falling for Richmond" and the hashtag #virginiaisforlovers.
