When did you first get the bug to direct?
I’d been thinking about it for the last 15 years. When you’re on the set as an actor, you imagine yourself being in the director’s shoes — all actors do that. A lot of times you bite your tongue because you know when something just isn’t going to work.
But the thing that really got you motivated was hearing that Kevin Spacey was going to direct an episode?
Yeah, I perked up my ears when I heard that. I was like, “Hey, wait a minute. I want to do one, too!” Surprisingly, [showrunner Beau Willimon] was very welcoming to the idea. There really wasn’t any resistance.
Some new screencaps have been updated to the Robin Wright Web Gallery from season 1 of House of Cards.

Robin Wright, the Dallas-born star of House of Cards and Forrest Gump, will speak at the Triumph for Teens Luncheon on May 7 at the Omni Dallas Hotel.
The event, which will raise money for the substance abuse treatment programs at Phoenix House Texas, is being chaired by retired Judge John Creuzot, who founded Dallas County’s first drug court.
“Young adults and teens today face very real and significant pressure to use and abuse drugs and alcohol, not just recreationally but for coping methods as well,” said Doug Reed, president and regional director of Phoenix House Texas. “Phoenix House is a source of hope, education, treatment and recovery for teens and their families who need our help addressing their abuse and addiction.”
Wright works to fight campus alcohol abuse and hazing and will address teen substance abuse as well as highlights of her career in her remarks. She’s a Golden Globe winner whose movies also include The Princess Bride, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and She’s So Lovely.
I’ve added to the Robin Wright Web Gallery with photos from the last 2 events she attended.

When President Barack Obama met Claire Underwood amazing things happened.
President Obama has made it no secret that he’s a fan of Netflix’s House of Cards, but he really stepped up his fanboy nature when he met Robin Wright at the Correspondents Dinner.
“I met President Obama and Michelle at the Correspondents Dinner… and before he even shook my hand—of course I was shaking like a leaf, I was so nervous—he leaned in and said, ‘I just want you to know, I’m not as bad as Francis.’ He needed me to know that,” Wright told press at a Netflix event on Monday.
Wright said Obama reiterated that fact three times. “He said, ‘I’m not as bad, but she on the other hand, is more like you,'” Wright said Obama was referring to Michelle Obama. “She and I kind of winked, she completely agreed.”
