Richard Armitage did a Q&A in Paris today. Here are some pics of him doing publicity…
… and here is the Q&A, up on YouTube!
Nice little interview and there are a few things there that I am glad to have learned!
- Mr cat still lives in Daniel Miller’s apartment, Richard thinks, and he may have a computer chip in his head.
- Richard wants to do a musical and play a rock star in a movie! Kinda like he once did in that ‘My Celebrity Boyfriend’ photobook many years ago, I imagine…
- Aw, he likes David Bowie! He’s not a true fan but fan enough. And he pronounces the ‘ow’ in Bowie as the ‘ow’ in ‘how’ whereas I pronounce the ‘ow’ as in ‘low’. His fave Bowie song is ‘Ashes to Ashes’. Yep, that’s a good song! David Bowie died 2 years and one week ago and I still miss him….
- Richard wants to act with Elizabeth Moss (I still need to watch The Handmaid’s Tale, I hear good things)…
… and of course he’s looking forward to working with Julie Delpy. My Zoe is still on the cards, albeit delayed.
- He’d like to do more phantasy like the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman (I’m not familiar with that trilogy) and he would do Tolkien again, but not sure he’d be a dwarf again.
- ‘Paris will always be Paris’ Richard says, which reminds me of this Casablanca scene. I love Casablanca.
- Richard likes “gratin dauphinois” which I agree is nice but I haven’t tasted in eons…
- And most excitingly of all: he’ll be doing a play soon and we’ll find out about it in the next couple of days! I feel my next London trip coming on and quite soon at that! Woohooo!!!! 🙂
He was also promoting Berlin Station in Paris yesterday…
… and my fave picture from yesterday is this one:
Hair lighter, he looks a little less thin, a lovely smile on his face and crinkles around the eyes. He looks so friendly! I have read comments on Twitter that he looks tired but I’m not sure he looks any more or less tired than usual to me. In any case, I love this picture!
Haven’t gushed over Richard in a while but I am very glad to do so now. 🙂 And I’m sure there will be more gushing in a few days, once we find out more about the play he’ll be doing. Can hardly wait!
MTA: the first picture I shared was apparently a photo manipulation by MatKhal on Twitter, I had totally missed that! She let me know what the original picture is:
