Jeremy Irons Article from The Globe and Mail – The Borgias

The Globe and Mail has published a new article about The Borgias, starring Jeremy Irons as Rodrigo Borgias. Here is a small excerpt from the article and a quote by Jeremy Irons.  The full article is available here.

At the head of the family is Rodrigo Borgia, later Pope Alexander VI, the first pope to openly acknowledge his illegitimate children. (He especially favoured the useless Juan: You could say he put all his ego in one bastard.) As wily as he is licentious, Borgia was once described by Alexandre Dumas as “the most perfect incarnation of the devil that perhaps ever existed.”
“Well, yes,” says Jeremy Irons, who plays Rodrigo, with a not entirely pious smile. “But history belongs to the winners, doesn’t it? And the Borgias had many enemies, because they were Spanish interlopers.”
