Learning ( or speculating) about details of Richard Armitage’s acting training, is one of my favorite About Armitage categories.I’ve written about it before, here, for example.
In interviews, Armitage has frequently talked about how he used movement to portray his characters, and what they’re thinking and feeling. Interviews about John Proctor, Thorin Oakenshield and recently, Francis Dolarhyde come to mind. It boils down, for me, for an actor to know his or her body intimately, and how to move it in relation to what’s around him or her to achieve a purpose. (Makes me wonder why he can’t keep still during interviews and panels.)
So what is some of the movement training Richard Armitage might have had? I found out Here.
