Oh No! This Time *He* Brought It Up.

From TheAge

The Hobbit star Richard Armitage had an unusual introduction to the entertainment industry. ”I was actually in the circus in Hungary, doing a little bit of juggling, some skateboarding and a bit of tumbling,” says the tall 42-year-old English actor. ”It wasn’t my intention to get into show business in that way but it was an English company and at the time it was the only way I could get a union card to work in the theatre that I wanted to work in. So I was sleeping next to the elephants,” he adds with a chuckle, ”which felt like the bottom rung of the business for sure!”

And this gem:

    I know we’re all tired of the circus being referenced, but I think it’s a good twist on the usual type of show business story for anyone who’s not come across it before.
