Kevin Spacey says his House of Cards character could be more equipped than the real-life US President.

He plays the ruthless Frank Underwood in the Netflix series.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert - he said he's surprised that a lot of their storylines have actually happened in real-life too but he joked that "I do believe we have better writers".

He also added that he's surprised how many of the House of Cards storylines turn out to be real-life events.

"At some point between when we shot the season and before it drops, three or four or five things that we have dealt with on the show happen in the real world", he said

"And we go 'OK, everyone is going to assume we stole it from the headlines', but in fact, we did it first".
