The STAR, and really close-up. I’m flying high. It’s because it’s Richard Armitage in something, but it’s especially because Richard Armitage is the hero/star. This may be billed as some sort of ensemble cast and there may be fine acting by others, (the antagonist?), but I predict that this role is going to give me enormous Armitage endorphin pleasures. If you’re a Lucas North lover, it almost feels like fan wishes/fiction are a little true. He lives. And after a great run watching all of The Night Manager, I am just so stoked.
I so hope the series lives up to expectations.
But, I have to say, after not liking Michelle Forbes on Twitter, it irritated me to watch her. I hope that goes away.
