Dr Astrov screencap spam

After the whole US election certifying crap and mobs breaking into the Capitol in Washington, I needed a little break. TV was switched off this evening and I threw myself into screencapping Richard Armitage in Uncle Vanya. Not too bad a way to self-soothe. I might as well share my screencapping results with you all before I pick some fave images to add to my screensaver. So, here goes, first the beginning of the play with Nana (Anna Calder-Marshall). By the way, for a better look you can click on each of these images to enlarge them…

Then Vanya (Toby Jones) and Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) join Dr Astrov. I always love Richard’s hand acting..

We get the Astrov, Vanya and Telegin (Peter Wight) drunk scenes at night which are quite funny and a bit sad too…

… followed by Sonya trying to figure out if Astrov returns her romantic feelings.

Then we have the whole Astrov showing his passion for the woods and his maps and flirting with Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar) scene. That’s all quite sexy, the man sure knows how to flirt on stage!

Astrov and Vanya talk things out…

Astrov and Yelena have their last goodbyes…

And then it’s time for Astrov to reluctantly leave as well…

This screen adaptation of Uncle Vanya also had nice impressions of the actors coming into the theatre at the very beginning and these two images of Toby and Richard (who is only seen from behind) were my favourites…

At the very end, after the play had ended, the actors all came on stage to hug each other. I especially loved the Anna and Richard hug. Anna Calder-Marshall was lovely at the stage door when she signed my programme last February and she was gushing about how she loved doing the play and how she loved Toby and Richard in it. The Richard love is quite apparent in these pictures.

Now I got all that out of my system I think I am done with Vanya for a bit. Although, I will never get tired of looking at Richard with long hair and beard, that is just about my fave Richard look.

Uncle Vanya, night two

No time to really write, but I will pic spam with stage door pics. Was another good night at the stage door, this time around with Rachel, Michele and Squirrel.

Anna Calder-Marshall who plays Nana was so sweet.

Richard Armitage came out next, making a beeline for the end of the line and signing up a storm. He was quick, didn’t pose for selfies but was all smiles.

Peter Wight was lovely…

As was Rosalind Eleazar

And Toby Jones was so very nice, happily prepared to pose for pictures. Squirrel took a group picture (she didn’t want to be in any pics herself).

The last one out was Ciaran Hinds who was absolutely lovely as well. We posed for a group picture with him but when I got home they weren’t on my phone! Bummed but there must have been some camera problem and I didn’t think to check on the spot. Only shot I did get was this one and I have happy memories which is what really counts…

I’ll elaborate more when I get back home again. Suffice it to say it was another lovely evening, yet again in great company.
