Francois Arnaud: 'Da Man' Magazine Feature!

Francois Arnaud is picture perfect in a feature for Da Man magazine’s June/July issue, featuring Ryan Kwanten on the cover.

Here is what the 25-year-old The Borgias actor had to share with the mag:

On the challenges of filming his show: “For The Borgias, I had to learn horse-riding and sword-fighting very quickly and look like a pro, who has done that every day for the past 10 years. It was very exciting though, but when you add freezing rain and night shoots [in Hungary], it really helps to put you in a Renaissance atmosphere where everything was much tougher. But, no one wants to be an actor to sit at a desk comfortably all day long.”

On his first day of rehearsals: “Terrifying, I felt like an impostor. I wanted to die and go back into my mom’s womb. And then I changed my mind.”

On the actors he enjoys watching: “There are so many actors that I find compelling to watch. If we talk about actors from the past: I have to say Marlon Brando, especially in A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront. I feel like he had understood something about masculinity that very few have. I could watch Kate Winslet and Juliette Binoche forever. And I’m so happy when I see young actors that inspire me as well: like Tom Hardy, Ryan Gosling, Ben Whishaw and others.”
