Danish production Borgen: Power and Glory locked us on the screen with both its political theme and Borgen: Power and Glory cast! While this 2010 series was very famous in its country, it just met with us on Netflix.
If we need to talk briefly, although it is a limiting approach to see this series only about politics, it should be said: the series develops around the party leader, who surprisingly became the prime minister and became the first female leader of the country. However, this process is widely reflected in the series, including political advisers (Spin Doctor), reporters on television, and daily family life.
Borgen: Power and Glory can be finished quickly with its 1-hour episodes with its realistic and fluent pace. The production, which taught a lot about the Danish political structure, was so popular that it has an 8.5 rating on IMDb.
Let’s get to know Borgen: Power and Glory cast, whose acting we are familiar with but have no idea about their personal lives!
