Richard in 2019 – my fave pictures

I was just going through some images I saved of Richard this year and thought I’d post my fave ones of 2019 here.

I’ll start with screenshots I took of him in Berlin Station, season 3. Techincally they are from 2018 but I only braved watching the first 2 episodes of season 3 at the beginning of this year (never bothered watching the rest) and I made these screenshots. I really liked domestic Daniel Miller in bed with Esther Krug (Mina Tander)…

… and this image was my favourite:

Suffering Daniel looked good…

… as did party Daniel with Valerie Edwards (Michelle Forbes):

But that’s pretty much all I enjoyed about Berlin Station season 3. On to other pictures…

At the end of January Richard was at the Sundance Film Festival for The Lodge (a movie I have yet to see, even though I’m not too keen on it or the genre). He didn’t look so comfortable with his co-star so I have no pictures with her that I liked, but I did like these:

He looked more at ease with Amy Ryan and Mindy Kaling, whom he had worked with before…

At the beginning of February he did the Hannibal Red Dragon Con in London, which gave us these lovely images that I really liked. He often looks best when he interacts with people (as opposed to just posing):

I saved this picture of him that I really liked in March, although I’m not sure anymore what the particulars were surrounding this image:


There was a lovely candid taken on a plane during the filming of The Stranger at the beginning of May:

In August more lovely travel pictures of Richard arriving in Seoul were shared by fans. I, like many others, instantly thought, “ah, grown up Harry Potter!” and found them adorable:

There was a fun The Stranger wrap picture:

And on his 48th birthday on August 22nd, Richard shared this sweet childhood picture:

My brothers totally had that same haircut in the 1970s (yes, that’s me aged 3 on the right)!


In September, Richard was at the Toronto International Film Festival, premiering and promoting My Zoe with Julie Delpy. My fave images:

And these two daddy-Richard stills from My Zoe made my heart go pitter-patter:

I also liked this September image of Richard in New Jersey at the Audible office there:

This image of Richard in October at a charity function with a guy called Jim Gibb had him looking so relaxed and happy:

And most recently in December I enjoyed these images of Richard at a screening of The Stranger in London (I love that he is in this with Jennifer Saunders!):

I also quite liked his Christmas message photo:

But my absolute favourite 2019 photo of Richard, one of my fave ever of him, is this one from October taken by Dr Gotts:


This image I just can’t get enough of! Maybe I should have it signed at the stage door if I am fortunate enough to meet him there after the Uncle Vanya play next year? In any case, I adore the longer hair and beard, I think this is my fave Richard Armitage look. If he starts 2020 continuing to look like this, then maybe that is the sign of a good year coming up? πŸ˜‰ I sure hope so, in any case! For him, for us, for everyone…

    This was a hard year for me image wise (so many that I didn’t like, left me cold, or were directly repellent) but the ones from the Stranger premiere definitely revived my spirits!

      1. I was tickled pink w that Dr Gotts look
        I had hoped he would release more pics as a Cmas pressie but still that pic was gold!!
        Oh and Daniel S3 was a bitter pill for me as Daniels my first love πŸ’• so only episode 1 was ok with Danny and Esther the rest were crap IMO

    I struggled to enjoy his last Daniel look, but I loved how he looked at RDC5 (Except for the photos shoots! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
    Middle of the year was best during The Stranger and in North Korea though that pic at the cathedral was dreamy and Dr Gotts!

    Thanks for sharing these, Esther. I save A LOT of pictures, but I was not organized enough this year to have any sort of order, so I could not do this. It’s all a big jumble with pictures from all over mixed together.
    I love the Gotts one and the one he shared for Christmas (curious to see if that turns out to be a Gotts shot as well) and RDC was just a spectacular look. The gray templesβ€”sigh.
    I liked his look at Sundance, but the official photos weren’t so much my cup of tea. Korea was cute, but will never make my top five. I love Toronto and also the ZoΓ« stills.

    Have a good end of the year. Guten Rutsch! as we say in these parts.
