Who is Richard Armitage?

This post is for all of you who have read or heard a little about Richard Armitage, the actor, but you still have little clue about him and may be perplexed by his fans’ love — really don’t get why he has an Army behind him. Maybe you’ve seen pictures of him as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson’s film, The Hobbit, or you saw the movie, but you know little else. I would put up some stills, but his chameleon quality sometimes puts him at odds with still photos. The best way is to see him move and hear him speak. And no, Thorin Oakenshield is not enough. Great as that is, it’s not enough. But I digress.

Not only is he extremely masculine, he is sensitive as well, and the superb mingling of these makes him beautiful to watch. I’ll stop with the gushing and let you judge for yourself.

If you like what you see, there are some wonderful sites dedicated to Richard Armitage which you might want to check out. I could not have easily done this blog without them:




You might also check out the Addict List and Places to Get a Fix.

And if you like what you see so much it’s scaring you, perhaps you can soothe yourself with my Diary entries so you know you’re not alone. LOL!

[note: this page is taken from a post I wrote earlier called “Who the Hell is Richard Armitage?” That question or some variation of it does seem to occur often in the States and maybe still in the UK. When I was in the UK for a month in 2009, I mentioned his name a few times (yes, I am shameless) and I often got a question or at least a questioning look. So I don’t know how well he was known on his own turf. Hopefully, all of that is changing with his casting in ‘The Hobbit’.]
