Not Just Cute! The Success of Hamlet: A Novel as Described by co-Author A.J. Hartley
What a mensch. He plugged lots of Armitage works. Audio book co-author A.J. Hartley says really nice ( and true) things about Richard Armitage’s performance of Hamlet: A Novel. ( co-authored by David Hewson).
Here, in an interview of Dr. Hartley during Dragon Con,
We are creating a new art object and that’s the purpose. [Macbeth: A Novel] was performed by Alan Cumming and was very well received, so we were then asked to do another and we did a Hamlet, which has just come out, performed by Richard Armitage of The Hobbit.
JMW: Yes, and also the BBC Robin Hood series, I believe.
A. J. Hartley: Yeah, among other things and a show called North and South, which is very good. He’s currently in The Crucible in London, which has received very, very good reviews. He’s a terrific actor and he’s a very popular actor, has a very powerful fan base, because he’s among other things, cute.
JMW: Yeah, well, hey, it’s really important to sell those audio box.
A. J. Hartley: Absolutely, but I don’t think I had fully understood his range as an actor until I heard what he was doing that one, because a voice actor has to do everything, not just narration, but all the different characters and such. He is terrific, wonderful.
