Showtime’s newest series, The Borgias, carries the tagline “Sex, Power, Murder. Amen.” As one might predict, the show boasts healthy servings of each, offering up a stark, violent depiction of Italy’s original crime family. It’s a hell of a story and likely another ratings win for Showtime, but as experts in the field of attractive females, the sex part is what really interests us. As such, we’ve combed the show for… um… talent, and come up with a list of the hottest women The Borgias has to offer.
One of the show’s youngest cast members, Holliday Grainger is an up-and-coming actress with big talent and looks to boot.
Dutch-born actress Lotte Verbeek is the centerpiece of The Borgias. Her character, a stunning Italian noblewoman who enters an illicit sexual relationship with the Pope, is sure to keep viewers’ eyes trained on their screens.
With a face like hers, Ruta Gedmintas is sure to turn a few heads in her role as the alluring would-be mistress of a young Borgia heir.
Eighties sex symbol Joanne Whalley has been an established name in the acting business for years now, but her role on The Borgias will remind fans why she came to fame in the first place. Hint: Her looks are only part of the reason.
The Entourage favorite is back again, this time playing an as-of-yet unidentified role in The Borgias. When that role starts, there’s no doubt that Emmanuelle Chriqui will steal the show. She might give it back afterward, but we’re okay with her taking over for a while.
Though her role in The Borgias is small and comprised of just a few lines in a handful of episodes, Mickey Sumner still holds a place as one of the show’s resident babes.
