Francois Arnaud: (About the audition process for his role of Cesare Borgia) I first read the script and then I auditioned on tape and then met Neil Jordan in London and then tested with Jeremy Irons in London. It was a bit of a long process, but you expect it to be for such a big part. But the audition process was really fascinating actually. Yeah, with Neil Jordan not giving me any directions really, but just asking me what I thought of the character and where I wanted to go with it and being very open. It was great to get that level of trust from such a wonderful director.
