Adam Price: Because I wanted to do a show about a person being challenged by the biggest job ever. And what is that person willing to sacrifice to get that job and to become very very good at it?
And I thought that men, actually we’ve had 10.000 years of experience of letting down our wives, homes, families, children – sacrificing everything in order to wage wars, and build big companies, and go out into the world and discover new continents. So I thought it would be more painful to watch a woman lose all that. All those traits of humanity, all that, but makes her character rounded and beautiful.
Just watched my first episode of Borgen. Dammit, Denmark. Why you gotta be so intense with your TV shows?
