Shocker? #RichardArmitage GetReel Interview

here The shocker is that Richard Armitage informs that his collaboration with Yaël Farber for the London stage next year is Shakespeare – and not Oedipus-Antigone. Wow. Well. Which? Lot of fans would like to Richard III. I imagine some, like me, are praying it isn’t King Lear – so whaddaya think? As to the rest of the interview . . .

More of the same as in previous interviews. A complete mishmash over his character and whether he is or isn’t violent or a villain. And, a quite obvious mistake, or maybe an error in the transcription, but he claims that Robin Hood took place later than Pilgrimage.  Not possible. Richard I ( the Lionhearted) was King during Robin Hood. Prince John was a baddie. But that same Prince John is the King during Pilgrimage. Oh well. This came up in his answer in which he says he never played a role in that period – I guess three years on RH didn’t count.

Anyway, I give him leeway where possible in these interviews – especially those at he end of the cycle, because it’s amazing that he’s even able to come up with some fresh material.

here    My Zoe description is a little puzzling at this point. Not sure if the word fiction after science was omitted by accident, but we’ve heard a few different plots at this point. He sure likes his exclamation points!!!!

Remember Bridget Cleary? #RichardArmitage

Richard Armitage hasn’t forgotten. I’m guessing, when he said “films like these” that he was referring to small, independent, Irish films, and not super violent ones. From what we’ve heard, Bridget Cleary is both. See here

Was @RCArmitage in Belgium for Pilgrimage? Appears So.
