The actor was fired following sexual assault allegations, and the role was written out of the show for this final series. But how does House of Cards manage without the scheming political operator who often broke the fourth wall? Sophie Wilkinson reviews the new series, which sees Frank’s widow, Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright, as the new American President. Actors Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden discuss their gender-swapping roles in a new version of Shakespeare’s Measure For Measure at the Donmar Warehouse in London.
