Richard Armitage Winds Up His Fans

Greendragon from interviewed Richard Armitage and posted the interview in two parts Part One and Part Two.

In Part Two, titled “Shakespeare, performance capture and getting back on stage – Richard Armitage talks to”, which give you an idea about what the interview was about. Richard Armitage loves Shakespeare and performance capture, and is wanting to “get back on stage”.

I love the interview for the bits about Mr. Armitage’s acting process. But his future plans? “Getting back on stage”? Really? How many, many, many time has he pulled this one out as a response to “future projects”? Note to researchers – check out his interviews and count them. He says that talk of his going back to the stage “winds up” his fans. Really?

He also says “I’m looking at quite a lot of smaller, independent movies with less special effects, as well.” So, shouldn’t be too hard to find, right? Quite a lot? PICK ONE, please, Mr. A.!

Please note, Mr. Armitage, you do “wind up” your fans when you are so coy about your future projects! We are quite curious to know just what you are considering. I hope you really are honestly considering some projects, and aren’t just saying it in order to avoid the question.

In another recent interview, Mr. Armitage said he was seriously trying to find a U.S. tv program to do, since he had a permit to work in the U.S. thanks to his work in “Into the Storm“.  So what is it – tv? stage? independent movies? Keeping his cards close to his chest? Well, he’s “not ruling anything out”!

Stay tuned, Armitage fans! We’ll find out one of these days! Meanwhile – The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug is set to premiere in Los Angeles NEXT WEEK!! YAY!!

  1. The suspense is terrible… I hope it lasts… (but not too long, Richard!) ^_^

    I’m choosing to think it’s all true..I choose to think he’s “reading”lots of possibilities. He can’t be reading something if it hasn’t been given to him by someone who wants him at least to consider it or if it caught his interest enough to try and obtain a script. The performance capture seems like a surprise – but I can so understand him wanting to do something where his appearance is inconsequential. I’m still waiting for that Gotham Magazine article where “surprises” were promised, but in the meantime, it’s all about Desolation of Smaug.Still, I can’t help noticing that he mentioned everything lots of fans want to hear *and* acknowledged that he’s winding us up. I can almost see his raised eyebrows as he said it.

      LOL! Yes. Raised eyebrows, indeed! 😀

      I choose to believe also that he is considering his next move very carefully. I am positive he has lots to choose from!! Still….waiting… 😦

    Or maybe he is practising before he goes into politics – after all he covered everything and said nothing in that statement.
