New Richard Armitage Fan Challenge 2018 Day 13

O.  Casual RA or dressed-to-the-nines RA?

I love both really.    

There is something to be said for a sharp dressed man:

But my all time favorite is when Richard selects his own wardrobe, when he "dresses himself" as the fandom says:

Reason I love this the best is because this is the real Richard, and I think he doesn't need to change in any way.

A favorite because I was there to see him at this event.

P.  RA on the big screen or RA on TV?

On TV because we get to see him longer, especially if it is a multi episode series.   

Q. Third season of BS (Berlin Station) or not?

Yes! Third season of BS!  Hope he's in it, and I'm looking forward to it.  (Though I have to find a way to watch it live, since I "cut the cord" now.) If only Epix would let us join their streaming service separately, individually?  How about it Epix?

Yes, BS has its flaws, and Daniel Miller is an underwritten character, but still a pleasure to look forward to seeing Richard on my screen every week, for several weeks.  And I have to say, that given the recent news, BS has been good at anticipating what's happening in the real world.  I also have hope for Season 3 and Daniel Miller because there are new writers at work.  But we don't really know if Daniel Miller will be back for the entire season, do we?

New Richard Armitage Fan Challenge Day 12

M.  RA has spoken Russian, French, and German in his roles so far. How good was he and which one was your favorite?

Also, let me say RA spoke a bit of Spanish in the first episode of Berlin Station Season 1. 

Since I don't speak Russian or German, I can't really judge.  I do speak French, but I'm not a native speaker, and I thought he did fine, I could understand him well, and thought he sounded very believable. Especially as someone who as Raymond had lived most of his life outside of France in a a country with a different native language. 

 I will say that a as bi-lingual speaker myself (Spanish/English) for many of us, though we speak our mother tongue, or the language we first learned as a child, the accent is not always exactly the same as someone who has lived to adulthood in their mother country.  I always spoke Spanish at home, but English outside and in school. And living in an area with native Spanish speakers from various countries, my accent when I speak Spanish is not entirely the one of my native country. Some people think I'm originally from Venezuela and not Cuba.  I say this in defense of Daniel Miller and Raymond de Merville and Richard's language/accent skills.

My favorite was Lucas North speaking Russian.  I don't speak or understand Russian, but I loved listening to Lucas speak it.

N.  Which language would you like him to speak in a future role?

I want him to speak English in his own British accent. That's my favorite. 

Or speak English in any and many varied UK accents.  That's always an added treat in all his audiobooks.

New Richard Armitage Fan Challenge Day 11

L.  Dealbrakers - What would make you stop being RA's fan.

I'm a believer that we don't really know how we will react to any situation until it happens.  We may think we know how we will react, but we don't really know.

I can't imagine what it would be.  It would be something like a Bill Cosby situation. Causing harm to others.

I work with people every day, people that I've worked with for a long time, and I can't say that I know them beyond our work together.  We've never had a personal conversation. So even people that we see every day, we don't know always what is in their hearts. We all have a public persona that we show to those we don't know well.  So I'm aware, as I said in answer to an earlier question, that I don't really know RA personally.  

But everything that I know about him now, and the way his co-stars seem to have great affection for him, including some that recently came to his "rescue", makes me think he is as he seems, a good man.
