Fictional politician, Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey in “House of Cards” died unceremoniously between seasons, but Netflix didn’t want to have such a big TV event go by without some sort of commemoration.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service has put up a real gravestone for Underwood in a cemetery in Gaffney, South Carolina.
The special site opened for fans on Nov. 2 and will stay until Nov. 10 for anybody in the area who wants to take a selfie with Underwood’s grave.
Adding to the the lifelike stunt, Netflix also took out an obituary for Underwood in Friday’s print edition of The Gaffney Ledger, which also noted that he was “buried” beside he’s father Calvin Underwood’s grave in Oakland Cemetery.
In the current and final season of “House of Cards”, Underwood’s wife Claire has taken over the presidency after her husband’s death, reportedly in his sleep. Of course, this being “House of Cards”, the true circumstances of his death become a driving mystery in the season’s plot.
The character was killed on the show after Netflix’s decision last year to fire Spacey following multiple serious allegations of sexual assault and misconduct involving underage boys.
