Gauis Octavian (played in HBO's Rome by actors Max Pirkis and Simon Woods) is born to one of the most powerful families in Rome, he is the only son and youngest child of Atia of the Julii. His father dies when he was young and he was subsequently brought up by his mother and sister Octavia. Very intelligent and well read Octavian is a young man whose formidable mind marks him out even among the upper classes in Rome. His astute understanding of those around him makes him observant and lethally sharp in guessing the motives and intent of others. He is, however cold and distant. He also displays a cynicism which is more than likely a product of exposure to his amoral mother and the morally corrosive nature of Roman politics. He does however occasionaly display his insecurities such as self-doubt in front of his sister and Titus Pullo, with whom he admits his mediocre skills in physical combat.

Octavian was a great crafty politician and a admirable leader, yet at the same time cruel and cold. He's a mix of the best and worst of Roman character.

In Deus Impeditio Esuritori Nullus, when Atia has returned from Egypt and slaps Octavian, he tells her she can have her villa. What does he say about Octavia? I keep repeating it but i can't make out if he's saying "And Octavia as well" or "Is Octavia well?". Sorry for asking such a stupid question but it has been bugging me. I love that scene so much though, brilliant acting. Poor Atia, but i love how she says "Crush Anthony and his Queen" and her expression. I love Polly Walker.
