period: Rome

Livia (Alice Henley) was a minor character in Rome, appearing in only three episodes – long enough to ensnare Octavian but not long enough to get the better of Atia who calls her a ‘vicious little trollop’. One feels, however, that if there had been a third season Atia may have come to regret saying: ‘You’re swearing now that some day you will destroy me, but remember that far better women than you have sworn to do the same. Go look for them now.’

Maurizio Silvi was the makeup designer.
