    This is such an important archive. Thank you so much for maintaining it! I just realized I had done a blogpost and hotlinked to one of your articles here. Sorry about that. I wonder what is the proper method for referencing an article from your site?
    Sorry, if you have stated this somewhere else and I perhaps missed it?

    Hi Phylly
    You can link to any page on the site, so that means any file that ends '.html'. Only '.jpg' files cannot be linked to.
    Thanks for your support.

    I'm 16 and am obsessed with this man! Such a good actor. He is gorgeous and has the body of a GOD. RICHARD ARMITAGE ALL THE WAY. :kiss: :kiss:

  • alison price  - re: interviews and progress

    Excellent interviews ! Pleasently surprised how comprehensive they are. i am a new follower and will continue to be so. am a newly converted part of the R A army will spread the word.

    Thank you for visiting and spreading the Alison, that would be great!

  • Marion Ziemke  - Interviews

    An amazing collection of Interviews. Thanks for sharing them! :silly: I often try to get my hands on foreign newspapers and magazines but our nearest newspaper shop is reluctant in optaining them because there is so little request...can´t be only me, I care a lot about what´s going on in England.


  • Kay.b  - HI

    OMG I love ths guy

  • Isabel

    love him. love him. love him.
    im 17 now, and haven't had a crush on an actor since I was 12, and always thought my friends that did where extremely childish. damn :confused:

  • Francesa

    I agree! I thought obsessions were cliché and childish, too... but over the past six months I have just become such a big fan of him! I'm in my teens... All my friends love Justin Beiber and One Direction... I just love Richard Armitage!
    He's really talented too.
    I love him! :P

  • Simonne

    Richard is wonderfull, talented, a very good actor. His eyes talk. Kisses by brazilian fan. Congratulations.

  • New England Lab Rescue / Heath  - 007

    I just spent my Christmas Week watching all three Seasons of Robin Hood. I am highly impressed and had total fun becoming totallly absorbed. I'm hooked, and saving the last two episodes for New Years Eve. What could be more exciting?? ( I really do have a life!).
    How shall we all wait to see him in THE HOBBIT?
    Just a thought:
    Who ever does the 007 casting for upcoming films, should keep Richard in their sights. He would be perfection as JAMES BOND.

  • Machu  - Thanks a Ton

    I came across RA :) , while reading North and South.
    Thanks for uploading the interviews. Through them I really got to know about RA & his work I wonder when he will visit India.

  • Margot4ever

    Hi, everybodY! I apologize for the question I am asking you. I am a RA fan from Italy and in a few weeks I will move to london for while. I wanted to ask you if, by chance, you know if RA is shooting anything there. Just like to have the chance to see him ;)

    Reply from Ali: sorry I don't know RA's filming schedule so can't help you there.

  • Margot4ever

    ok, thanks anyway

  • jackie

    Do we know when the womans weekly article was published? I was wondering if its the one that he apologized for- not that he needed too! And I agree, he doesn't know how talented he is! Its a good thing though, keeps his feet on the ground which makes him so adorable. Nobody likes a big head with an ego the size of a country.

    Bless him, he really is the best!

    Reply from Ali: sorry I'm not sure what you mean when you say 'the one he apologized for', what apology was that? The interview was published in WW this week and took place sometime during the filming of Spooks, a few months ago.

  • jackie

    Hey Ali,
    He apologized for appearing to ridicule the Armitage Army, but I think this was in late 2009. I only just found out a few weeks ago that he did this, and I've not seen any interviews that appear too offensive to the army, other than maybe this one which doesn't seem that bad! I'm glad it wasn't this article anyway- even if it was, I'd still love him! ;)

  • Phylly3

    What a treasure trove these articles are! Thanks so much!!
    In the latest interview he says he has "relatively limited talent"! WHAT???
    The man is too humble by far! As gorgeous as he is, I would not be so avid about the career of someone with "relatively limited talent". His talent is limitless!!!!

  • NancyMae  - Leicester Mercury

    60 years from now, when he's reflecting back on his long and wonderful career he'll be thinking "Wow, they sure were a loyal Army."

  • Claudia

    What a dilema
    If he goes to LA or start making more USA movies he is going to be famous for sure...but...british tv and movies are so much better, better stories, better perfomances...british actors are pure gold!

  • Anonymous

    Thanks for the updates ladies.

    I had to smile at the Leicester Mercury interview. He's not done anything we've hated so far.

  • amandajane  - Latest Spooks articles.

    Thank you ladies for supplying these. Much appreciated as always.

  • mw  - LA

    If Richard does goes to LA, I hope he'll be careful. Hollywood eats people for breakfast. :)

  • Phylly3  - bit of a brooder? D'ya think?

    Love, ;ove this latest article "Life in the Day"! It's such a gift to know the little things like what he eats for breakfast, etc. The temper thing doesn't bother me, I've got one too -- it just shows he's passionate! LOL :P
    Then to top it all off -- he quotes Shakespeare! ** dies! **

  • tyme4t  - He's practically perfect in every way!

    Thanks for sharing that article! That certainly made my day! B)

  • lynbryt

    Sounds like a very ordinary bloke. I was a bit surprised that RA has a 'throw a chair through the window' temper though.

    Thanks for posting.
