In Budapest since June, where he will star in one of the main roles in the American Series "The Borgias," the actor Francois Arnaud is happy to live this unique experience. Below is the phone conversation on his role of Renaissance Prince. On the set of the TV series history “The Borgias,”
Quebec actor François Arnaud is pretty well surrounded.
Jeremy Irons, Colm Feore, through the actress Holliday Grainger he calls "tremendous" and David Oakes, a young English actor full of promise, not to mention the Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), Arnaud is comfortable and happy. And he embodies not Cesare Borgia, Italian Renaissance nobleman and son of Pope who inspired Machiavelli's The Prince?
"The life of the Corleone family portrayed in the movie “The Godfather” is based on that of the Borgias, said the actor also reached by telephone in Budapest, where the series is [on] American tour. My character of Cesare Borgia is equivalent to that of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino). "
Until Christmas, Arnaud will still embody the character of Theo in the TV series “Yamaska” presented to VAT. But, as announced in The Press on 1 June, she was hired for the filming of “The Borgias” was forced to leave Quebec production. Starting in January, William Perreault will become Theo.
In Budapest, Arnaud is immersed in a world completely different from that of Yamaska. It is no longer in Granby in 2010, but in 1492 in Rome. In this year of the discovery of America, Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons) is elected pope and became Alexander VI.
"Rodrigo Borgia is the clan leader,” says the actor. “In the first episode, he rose to the papacy. I am his eldest son, who resembles him most. My father wants me to move up the hierarchy of the church. He wants to make me a Cardinal, [but] I want to be the army chief, a post for my brother Juan (David Oakes). "
The television series will be presented at the beginning of April 2011 on the U.S. television network Showtime. In Canada, we can follow almost the same time on Bravo! and CTV.
Filming the first season ends soon. Arnaud will return to Montreal in early December. On December 14, he can be seen with Celine Bonnier in a public reading of a text by Michel Marc Bouchard to the Great Library. In April, he should participate in the filming of an independent film entitled “I Want to Remove the Head,” [translation] based on the novel by Jonathan Harnois and directed by Hélène Bélanger-Martin.
Filming of The Borgias could last a few seasons. If any, would Arnaud abroad six months per year. "But Quebec and Montreal, it's still my home," he said. I'm open to suggestions! "
