Into the Storm has a storm-chaser gambling everything for that once-in-a-lifetime shot of the heart of a tornado. Similarly, I speculate, there must be a once-in-a-lifetime role his heart desires. “Ye-es, there is,” he replies after a pause, “and I may have just auditioned for it.” Tantalisingly, he refuses to say more. “I’ll let you know if it doesn’t come through,” he offers. “Because if I do get it, you will read about it!”
Good for RIchard Armitage that John Proctor is no longer the role of a lifetime. Keep moving on.
Thanks to Micra, who speculates ( and I agree) that most likely he has gotten the role, or is very close.
