STARZ has invited us “to meet the elegant, beautiful and deceptively powerful Clarice Orsini, wife of Lorenzo Medici (played by Elliot Cowan) and part of the ultimate Florentine ‘power couple’ in David S. Goyer’s new STARZ Original Series Da Vinci’s Demons. Lara Pulver (True Blood, Sherlock, Robin Hood), who plays Orsini, compares her character to ‘a modern-day Hillary Clinton or a Wallis Simpson – a powerhouse of a woman who is a devoted wife and mother and yet, a very forward-thinking, intelligent, driven woman’.”
The Plot: Da Vinci’s Demons follows the ‘untold’ story of the world's greatest genius during his turbulent youth in Renaissance Florence. Brilliant and passionate, the twenty-five year old Leonardo da Vinci (played by Tom Riley) is an artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist. The eight-part series is created and penned by David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Man of Steel), who also directed the first two episodes.
We loved Lara Pulver in Sherlock, what do you think Maniacs? Our own Tim Janson will covering the new series, thus giving you a chance to sound off as well.
Da Vinci’s Demons premieres on Friday, April 12th at 10pm ET/PT, only on STARZ.
