Claire Un­der­wood

House of Cards (Net­flix series) 2013-present

TV Times - - Interview - (Robin Wright)

Amanda is a huge fan of hit po­lit­i­cal series House of

Cards, es­pe­cially ruth­less politi­cian, Claire un­der­wood.

‘I’m re­ally pleased I started play­ing Con­nie such a long time ago, be­cause I could have been ac­cused of pla­gia­rism if she had come along after Claire – every­one would think I was copy­ing her!’ laughs Amanda.

‘Claire is just very Con­nie: they’re both cold, de­mand­ing, driven and un­de­ni­ably fem­i­nine. I think what used to hap­pen if you had a strong woman on TV was that she al­ways had to deny her sex­u­al­ity and her gen­der to be suc­cess­ful, but that’s not the case with these char­ac­ters. Claire would def­i­nitely give Con­nie a run for her money.’
