P. RA on the big screen or RA on TV?
Basically, for me, it’s RA wherever I can actually see him! The lovely thing of seeing him on the big screen is that you see him larger than life and that is always a bonus! The lovely thing of seeing him on the small screen is that, if he’s doing a series, he can be there every week for a while. But no, I have no real preference. I just want him to make good stories on a visual platform that I can easily access again and again. Last night I found him on Netflix, which made me happy! 🙂
Q. Third season of BS or not?
Not. I haven’t even braved season two yet… In season one, I found the storytelling too convoluted, too many plotlines, too many characters, no one to root for. Admittedly, Daniel is wonderful to look at…
… and his ‘love’ interest was called Esther (if it even was love), which means I could hear Richard say my name occasionally…
…but to me Daniel Miller has little to no personality. While Richard really makes the best of it, neither the character nor the storytelling nor the plots have ever been able to really grip me. So, for me, no more Berlin Station necessary, time to move on.
R. OTPs – what is your favourite pairing of RA’s past work?
It’s just got to be John and Margaret in North and South…
S. Which actor would you like to see him paired with in the future?
Ooh, answering it now, I’d say Gugu Mbatha Raw, whom I have only recently really discovered. I’d like to see Richard and her in something romantic together. They already look good together side by side..
I also thought he had great chemistry with Orla Brady in Strike Back, so I’d like to see him work with her again.
But really, any good actress with whom he has chemistry will do! As for actors – if he could be in a movie with Colin Firth and Hugh Jackman, that would be so cool!
T. What was the first thing you ever contributed to a fandom?
Have I contributed anything to the Richard Armitage fandom? Well, maybe this blog. Oh, and an N&S fan fiction that I once published on an Armitage forum years ago. Reading it back now, I would change a lot about it, so I’m not owning up to it here… 😉
