Remy Danton is a former press secretary and protege of Frank Underwood. He is a partner at the law firm of Glendon Hill where his main responsibility is as a Washington lobbyist for SanCorp, a natural gas company.


He convinced Claire Underwood to backstab Frank by offering to help her to move a cargo shipment of water supplies through South sudanese customs in exchange for her help in killing a bill that Peter Russo was sponsoring. He also switched allegiances from SanCorp to Tusk after being approached by Frank to persuade SanCorp to buy out some of Tusk's companies.


He worked for Frank Underwood as his Communications Director for eight years.


Danton is serious and shown to be very concerned about the companies he works for, and seeks to accomplish the companies' main goals. However, he is shown to have a lighter side. Jackie Sharp noted that he is a shameless flirt, to which Danton admits, adding, however, that he just flirts and doesn't care for one-night stands.


  • He was given a watch by Frank Underwood with an inscription of a quote by Winston Churchill: "To improve is to change. To perfect is to change often."
  • Danton was a French revolutionary who was executed after being accused of leniency to the previous regime.
