Good Lord!

I am not a religious person but “Good Lord!” escaped my lips when I just now saw this image cross my Twitter timeline!

RA jan 2020 UV rehearsal

I… have…no… words…. Has Richard’s hair always been this curly? Blue is a good colour on him, I love love love his hair longer like that, I love the beard with specks of grey in it and then there’s that intensity… Yes, good lord indeed! The images are from this “What’s on Stage” tweet…

I’m close to 14 years into my Richard Armitage crush, but this takes my breath away. Even fuzzy in the background he looks stunning! And I’ve gotta say, Ciaran Hinds is also doing something to my insides here…

As I click through the pictures in the link in that tweet, there’s also this one!

Is it the end of February already? For these looks alone I’m looking forward to Uncle Vanya, not to mention the ride we’ll be in for with the play itself….

    Pretty certain his hair has always been that wavy, I think he’s just always tried to tame it and shorter styles will have that effect. The pics are gorgeous. He’s looking exactly as I would want him to lol…longer hair, denim and sexy man boots πŸ˜‚

  2. You’re quick, Esther, and sooo right!!! He who sweeps you off your feet… I love the intensity of these rehearsal pics! But I wonder how he’ll finally look on stage – during LLL rehearsals he had a beard afair which was of course gone in stage.

    1. Lazy day at home today and I happened to be scrolling on Twitter (because Anne with an E season 3 has been released on Netflix today and I’m binge-watching again while also following Anne tweets) and then – boom! – this happened and my heart stopped. πŸ™‚ My binge-watch is on pause for a bit as I process these images.
      Unlike LLL, I’m thinking Uncle Vanya is a good play to have longer hair and beards in. πŸ™‚

            1. I hope I didn’t get your hopes up too much. I’ve been trying for weeks to write a post about why I love it so and I just can’t seem to find the words. It’s as much about me as it is about Anne, I suspect. Anyway, don’t be shy to tell me if you don’t like it, it can’t be everyone’s cup of tea after all (although it definitely is mine!).

              1. OH I think it’s more curiosity and I like a lot of things you write about and I undoubtedly have questions. I’m gonna do a Miranda rewatch soon since short episodes and have questions that went over my Head first time
                Plus I like to chat about series b/c I miss much and/or like to get a different perspective/take on the story and characters

        1. I hope you can rest up this weekend and get better. There’s definitely something going around… lots of sickness here too. So far, I’m exempt from the flu myself, fingers crossed it stays that way.

  4. I think we all had the same thought. At least the two other posts I have seen online were all expletives πŸ˜‚. I must say I am looking forward to this play more and more. He’s looking as if he is in fine form – if good, healthy looks are any indication of what is happening inside the head.
