Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, Batt said: “What attracted me to Agrippa the most was I enjoyed we had this incredibly hardened battle-ready successful general who also must have been a fiercely intelligent man, designing certain infrastructure in Rome, helping to build the pantheon and sewage systems in Rome.
“He was just a very very powerful figure who did not once make a grab for power himself and I thought that must of been very interesting at the time.”

“He didn’t treat her as, most women were, a second class citizen, he taught her about politics and diplomacy and the reasonability of duty and he treated her as an equal and has an unquestionable love for his child and I found that incredibly interesting in this huge epic story there is a humanity in it and that is the kind of thing, as an audience member, I find intriguing.”
