This is a candid taken of Richard and his Thorin stunt/scale double, Mark Atkin, at Sir Ian McKellen‘s fundraiser in NZ. Mark kindly shared this great photo with Ali at www.richardarmitagenet.com. So much to like here–Richard’s big, silly grin, that double thumbs up featuring those beautiful thumbs we all know and love, the sense of playfulness we see in the man. And the bared forearms and that handsome watch. It’s all good.
I can’t help but think it would be a pleasure to work alongside this someone like Richard. A true professional dedicated to his craft, but not one to take himself too seriously.
