    Well done! An enjoyable read. I look forward to the other two part.

      Thanks, Jake. Unfortunately, I’m just a red blur in the first two episodes. I think I’ll be seen in Episode 3 Friday.

    What an interesting adventure! Did you get any “behind the scenes” Vatican tours?

      Charlene: No Vatican tours. The Vatican didn’t help the producers one iota. We shot nothing at the Vatican. The Vatican scenes you see were built at Cinecitta.

    I will wait to watch in English in the U.S., but how fun it will be to know a bit about the background and your role. Bravo!

    Thanks. I think I’m in three more scenes — at least, I’m filmed in three. I was left on the cutting room floor unless you count a fuzzy, tall, red image in the background a TV appearance. I should be in one of the first scenes Friday, Episode 3.

    Thank you for taking the time and effort to detail your experience. I thoroughly enjoyed living through your eyes.
    Now, when I re-watch the series, I will be looking for you!
    Maybe you can answer a question: when all the Cardinals are together wearing red, why is one guy all in black?

      Karen: You’ll have to look REAL close to find me. I’m in Episode 1 when Jude Law weaves his way through the ballroom of cardinals. I’m a blur he approaches near the start of the scene.

      Good question on the man in black. We wondered the same thing but Paolo Sorrentino didn’t say too much. We were told the man in black was from India which deserved some special recognition. The extra really was Indian and that robe and turban were extraordinarily hot, he told us. He was the same Indian who tried telling Paolo that he’s a hero to a famous director in India and Paolo cut him off before he could explain. The extra then muttered some profanity in Hindu and took his place on the floor again. (A little behind-the-scenes insight, that.)
