The Borgias


Historical drama The Borgias is focused on the House of Borgia and their rise to power at the turn of the 16th century, centering on Rodrigo Borgia (Jeremy Irons), the later Pope Alexander VI, and his family: his illegitimate sons Giovanni (David Oakes), Cesare (François Arnaud) and daughter Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger).

The third season picks up where the second season stopped: the Pope is fighting for his life after being poisened with cantarella while his Cardinals continue to plot at his deathbed. However, not only the Pope’s life is in danger, his enemies are also after his family.

One of the assassins (Andrew Gower) blackmails Lucrezia’s nurse Concetta (Mackenzie Munro) to gain access to the Borgia household and kill all family members. Lucrezia, Cesare and his servant Micheletto (Sean Harris) need to work fast if they want to save everyone…

Andrew appeared in The Borgias season 3 episode 1 “The Face of Death” as Assassin number 1.

Filming of the episode took place in July 2012 in Budapest (Hungary).

Andrew’s episode aired in the USA on 14 April 2013 on Showtime and on 17 June 2013 on Sky Atlantic.
