How Kevin Spacey vanished off the face of the earth…

When the new series of US political drama House Of Cards was screened earlier this month, it received an unusually lacklustre reception. The much-acclaimed show, now in its sixth season, had been a cornerstone of Netflix’s annual schedule, with tens of millions around the world gripped by the malevolent scheming of its central character, President Frank Underwood, portrayed to eerie perfection by actor Kevin Spacey.

In 2005, architect Ahmed Saleem deferred his dreams and settled for opening the world’s first underwater restaurant, Ithaa, at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort. At Ithaa, diners can eat five-star cuisine, five meters under the Indian Ocean, watching sharks and blue tangs swim past as they dine under an acrylic canopy. It’s an architectural marvel that would be the highlight of many designers’ resumes, but not for Mr. Saleem, as he is known around the resort.

Steve Carell: “The Office” Couldn’t Be Made In Today’s Political Climate

Some had even called for it to be brought back on the air.
