SLYTHERIN: “In the Garden of Eden, Eve showed more courage than Adam…when the serpent offered the forbidden fruit, she knew that there was something better than paradise.” -Tom Fontana (Cesare Borgia: Borgia: The Serpent Rises)
But surely it is good to marry, Cesare? As the pope’s daughter, you will have every prince of Europe vying for your hand. They may care very little for your heart. Perhaps I should do as you have done, brother, take Holy Orders. Give my heart to God. That might be the safer option, my love.
You know, I’ve always wanted to play such great characters from literature having grown up reading a lot of these books. I guess it was just karma that the opportunity to play these fantastic roles all came at once.
