Spacey: Mara is so interesting

Kevin Spacey stars in a US adaptation of the hit miniseries House Of Cards

Kevin Spacey has paid tribute to his "dynamic" House Of Cards co-star Kate Mara.

The actress - sister of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo's Rooney - plays a young reporter in the new political TV drama, in which Kevin stars as the scheming Majority Whip of the US House of Representatives.

"I think she's just dynamic. She's sexy and she's interesting and she's complex," he said of Kate.

"It's a very interesting relationship, you have a woman who is starting out her career with no power, meeting a man who is at the peak of a kind of power and it's interesting to see how that dynamic's going to evolve."

House Of Cards has been adapted by Kevin, The Social Network's David Fincher and writer Beau Willimon from the BBC miniseries of the same name.

When asked how the show differed from other political TV shows, Kevin said: "It's not Homeland, it's not Veep, it is its own thing.

"I think Homeland's brilliant, I love Veep, it's very funny. I think people have always been interested in politics and it's always been great fodder for examining in film and television."

:: House Of Cards can be viewed on Netflix from February 1.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
