Frank's got big plans in House of Cards return, says Spacey

House Of Cards star Kevin Spacey promised Frank Underwood has big plans as US president at the world premiere of the new series in London.

Spacey and Robin Wright, who play power hungry political couple Frank and Claire Underwood in the hit Netflix show, walked the red carpet in Leicester Square for the charity screening.

The end of season two saw Frank finally achieve his goal of becoming President of the United States after years of planning and scheming to dethrone his predecessor.

But Spacey made it clear his anti-hero will not rest on his laurels in season three.


"I think that people who are driven by power, they want to accomplish things," he said. "So it's not like now he's the president he has nothing else to do.

"We all know how difficult it is to be a president and what kind of demands it has on the individual. So I think that like anyone who has found themselves in that office, getting there is difficult, but once you're there, you want to accomplish things. So there's a lot to do."

Wright admitted she was excited by how popular the show has become.

"It's mind boggling to me. How fantastic that you have a successful piece of material."

All 13 episodes of season three are now available on Netflix.
