House of Cards - Kevin Spacey and Beau Willimon Interview

Kevin, did you base Francis Underwood on anybody, in particular?

KEVIN SPACEY: No. If you go back to the origins of this series, it started with Richard III. Michael Dobbs wrote the book House of Cards, which is what they based the original British series on. He wrote this book as a kind of revenge, after he had a falling out with the government and left. I remember the series. My mother loved it, when it was airing here, in the United States. It was brilliantly done. When we started talking about doing it, the idea was that it would adapt well for the United States. Everything that I would have needed, as an actor, to find out who this man is, and quite frankly, there’s a lot about him that I still don’t know because we have a long road to go, was in the scripts. Working Beau Willimon, David Fincher, Robin [Wright] and this cast has been the most thrilling, extraordinary part of this experience. We have developed this together.
