Kevin Spacey has revealed he and co-star Robin Wright are often getting things wrong on the set of 'House of Cards' and he would love to put together a blooper reel of all the footage

Kevin Spacey wants to make a 'House of Cards' blooper reel.

The 55-year-old actor confessed he and co-star Robin Wright have so much fun making the Netflix original series that they're constantly filming new takes and have hours worth of footage of them messing around on set.

Speaking at the world premiere of the third season of the show at London's Empire Leicester Square, he told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah, we have a great time. We haven't done a blooper reel but I think we should at some point because there's a lot of them. There's probably thirteen hours of blooper reel."

The 'American Beauty' star spoke about playing US President Frank Spencer in the hit political drama and admitted he enjoys having no idea what his character is going to do next.

Asked if he enjoys playing a man with no morals, he said: "I disagree. He doesn't have your morals or your rules but he's got his own and the great thing is that there's a lot I don't know about him.

"That's sort of the fun, is showing up every day and seeing where the story's going, where the script's going and what gets revealed about him. It's more interesting what I don't know than what I do know."

Spacey also revealed his on-stage experience prepared him for the way in which Frank speaks directly to the camera during the show, in the same way actor Matthew Broderick did in 1987 film 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'.

He explained: "Well, I have the experience in the theatre of having done 'Richard III' and actually many people may not know what that refers to is that Shakespeare created direct address.

"I know some people think Ferris Bueller created direct express but he did not ... So that's when you turn to the audience and share what the character's going to do, sort of making them your co-conspirators."

'House of Cards' season three is available to watch on Netflix now.
