“ You were anointed by God, blessed by the Sun. But you do not yet possess what really matters: the power!  Without it you will perish and all the France along with you. For the king without a castle is no king at all. And now, you dream of paradise, but you must build it for yourself and let the whole world know Louis the Great has arrived. “

(Versailles, 2015)

“The Greeks knew what glory was. Their buildings were temples for their gods to live in. We will build a new temple, here. A royal tabernacle of the sun. A dwelling place of the divine and of the people, with a great hall of light that will follow the sunrise and shine out to all corners of the globe so they might all see the glory of France.”

(Versailles, 2015)

This scene is great for many reasons. The Queen talks about protection and BAM! Philippe jumps in the carriage! Good job guards!! And it’s funny when you realise that Marie-Thérèse is Spanish. Philippe is really blundering. ^^

“When you do a TV job as long as I do, sometimes, the first thing you want to do immediately afterwards is go on stage. I am fundamentally a stage actor, and that’s where I was trained, and that’s where my love of acting is. Being on stage with a live audience is where I belong! That is where I truly think that I will find myself, and you realise that nothing can beat a live audience, and the butterflies in your stomach when you are about to step on stage.”
