David Oakes letter to Borgias fans

Actor David Oakes Addresses Fans Trying To #savetheborgias On Facebook Letter

Fans of the cancelled period drama The Borgias, got a very big boost from British actor David Oakes (The Pillars of the Earth), who played Juan Borgia in the first two seasons, on Facebook.

The Showtime series which also starred Jeremy Irons, Francois Arnaud, and Holliday Grainger as the rest of the Borgias family members was cancelled after three seasons.

Audience members are up in arms about Showtime’s decision to end the show without really finishing the story and have started a campaign called Save the Borgias.

They have been incredibly resourceful in trying to get the network’s attention using all the social media avenues at their disposal. They have a website, Twitter and Facebook page up as well as the hashtag #savetheborgias.

Apparently their efforts got at least one of the former cast member’s attention.

David Oakes, who was killed in season two, wrote an open letters to his fans on Facebook addressing the campaign and offering his support even though his character will not return.

Oakes is an avid Twitter user and has been known to acknowledge fans questions in forums and on Facebook. He took part in two fan chats during his run as Juan in the very popular Borgias Fan Wiki website.

There, he patiently answered questions from excited fans who participated in the chat.

The letter addresses the #savetheborgias campaign and wishes the fans heading the effort the best of luck.

David is loved by his followers for his down to earth, humble demeanor and is known for his wit and good humor on Twitter.

Save the borgias campaign for Showtime.
