Richard Armitage Talks about The Hobbit in 2006

I was looking through my old vids and had forgotten I posted this and that Richard Armitage talked about his love of The Hobbit back in 2006 when playing Guy of Gisborne in Robin Hood:






The interview is from one of the Robin Hood audio books that Richard recorded. (I'll have to look up the one, and update here).

Update: Interview from "Sheriff Got Your Tongue?" audio book, released in 2006

It was fate-he had to be Thorin

Happy Guy Day

A Video About? My Life

Don't know why I'm in a video mood lately. 

Playing with a favorite song, art, Middle-earth, dreams, nightmares, comedy...winter on the other side of the world...and the start of summer on my side.

Looking Good at the BAFTA's



Sean Bean at the BAFTA Awards in London yesterday, May 12.  I'm sad that Sean didn't win the best actor award, but always good to see him looking good.  

Congratulations to Sean on his BAFTA nomination.

Richard Armitage- Love the Hair









We rarely get to see Richard's naturally curly hair - I think we have a view of it here from the IGN interview posted this morning.  

So cute.

Sean Bean - Legends - Summer 2014






TNT announced it has greenlit the spy drama "Legends," from "Homeland" producer Howard Gordon.

The suspense series is based on the book by spy novelist Robert Littell, who is  already part of the TNT family -- his CIA novel "The Company" served as the basis of the network's 2007 miniseries.

"Legends" stars "Game of Thrones" vet Sean Bean (with his head attached!) as an undercover agent who starts to question his own identity after an encounter with a "mysterious stranger."

An Armitage Dream Week - Start of The Month of May and Sydney Q&A - Comments about Armitage from Interviewer and Transcript from TORN

(Not sure source of this photo - From Popcorn Taxi Event in Sydney, May 1)



What a wonderful week last week for all Richard Armitage fans. Much thanks and love to all who were there a the Popcorn Taxi Q&A for sharing their experience, and more to come I'm sure. So grateful.

The lovely and talented people at TheOneRing.net has today published the transcript of the Q&A and so today we love TORN more than ever!  If you haven't seen it, below is the link:

TORN's correspondent Deleece talked to the interviewer, Oscar Hillerstorm, after the event and he had some lovely and interesting comments about talking to Armitage  the day before the special night's event that I think are worth highlighting:

Deleece: And you found that Richard was very happy to do these sorts of things (Q&A)? Have you done anything before with Richard through Popcorn Taxi?
Oscar Hillerstrom: No, this is the first time we’ve worked with Richard. But, at the same time, I had a chat with him yesterday and I found him remarkably candid, very thoughtful, and a straight forward actor. It’s really interesting when you talk to him just as a normal human being how you see the qualities of Thorin onstage come through him. But, at the same time he’s just a regular guy who is very interested in the craft of acting, and that kind of thing really comes out on stage. I think he is fascinating. Especially for the fans who get to see a bit of stuff behind the scenes and obviously the interviews. But, when you’re on a Popcorn Taxi stage the curtains are let down – I guess ‘the pants’ in this particular aspect are also let down (laugh). You get to see something you don’t normally get to see – which is a normal human being discussing what they do for a living. And perhaps it takes a smidgeon of mystery out of it but at the same time it gives you so much more. And that for me is the real joy of it.



He also has some things to say about Richard Armitage fans! Go to TORN to see the full post about the Q&A in Sydney.
