Actor Kevin Spacey, star of the nine-time Emmy-nominated Netflix series House of Cards, has been making a lot of headlines over the past few days for a speech he gave at the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival last week.
The whole speech has been made available on the official YouTube channel for the festival, so here you go. It’s about 45 minutes long, but it’s Kevin Spacey talking, so totally worth it.
He says that his role on House of Cards is probably the only reason he was asked to speak, but come on, Kevin. Your’e Kevin Spacey.
“From his unique perspective as a director, producer and actor working across the world on stage and screen, mainstream networks and the internet, Kevin Spacey considers the changes sweeping across our industry and the opportunities for innovation and creativity for those who live to tell stories and engage audiences,” the festival says in the video description.
And his thoughts about the industry are precisely why the talk has been in the headlines. The industry is watching the Netflix approach closely as it makes history in television consumption.
