House of Cards – FU has a private word with you

I have a very soft spot for good, well written and well acted villains, and there are few better than Scottish actor Ian Richardson as the Machiavellian Tory politician Francis Urquhart.

It was the way that Ian Richardson would turn to you [The audience] and tell you his thoughts simply made the series.

And who can forget Sir Francis Urquhart famous chat phrase – “You may think that, but I could not possibly comment.” Delivered in that wonderfully dry and slightly bored way.

Its this sort of realism and wickedness that I want to get in my villain’s in my books.
