Netflix’s House of Cards star Robin Wright has stated she would happily give up acting for good, and instead turn her hand to directing.
The actress stated to Harper’s Bazaar: ”If someone said, ‘You can either act or direct’, without hesitation I would say, ‘Direct’.
“I think once I’d tasted the directing, I didn’t want to go back. That’s all. No different to going ‘Oh I love that restaurant, I don’t want to go back to Denny’s [US fast food chain]’.”
For the new seasons of House Of Cards Wright was at the helm for four episodes and she seems to want to direct more but also wants to do more for equality inside the industry.
“I think my mission statement is: you don’t have to be a bitch to be powerful. I’m trying to stick to that.”
House of Cards season 4 launches on Netflix on Friday (March 4).
