Richard Armitage is on the threshold of world wide fame. As admirers of his amazing skills and talent I think his fans feel very proud that he was cast as one of the leads for "The Hobbit." His success is much deserved, he's trained and worked very hard to achieve it.
But like many, of his fans I worry about the scale of publicity and media and fandom that await him. I worry that the poor guy will be asked the "circus" question constantly, in every language!
I thought a good way to put in perspective the issue of Richard's growing fame was to look back in video format at his TV and film career so far through the media coverage he's received since he was billed as "smug man at party" in a 1999 film.
So what do you think about the media coverage RA has received so far in his career? Are you looking forward to international media coverage and seeing him interviewed on your favorite talk show or by your favorite journalist outside the UK? Would love your comments!
