Oh, yes. We appreciate his maturity, too.


Richard has appeared to retain the best part of being young–a sense of wonder, enthusiasm, a playfulness–without being childish (i.e., tossing cellphones at hapless minions, throwing temper tantrums and the like). He has a lovely sense of humor about himself and his image whilst still maintaining his keen sense of professionalism and dedication to the roles he plays. There are actors whose talents I admire; their characters, however, leave something to be desired.  Richard is also a human being I can admire and respect for much more than his acting abilities.


No, I do not “know” Richard Armitage. I only know what I can infer from his interviews and what others have to say about him, and look at how he conducts his life, and make educated guesses. I go by gut instincts and by the genuine qualities I see in his smiles, his laughter and by the light in those beautiful eyes.  The lines around them show a man who understands that life is indeed a banquet to be savored, to be appreciated.

He was a lovely younger man; he’s only grown more attractive with the years. Those four decades sit well on his broad shoulders. Richard grows older, as we all do; but I think he will never grow old.

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. I agree 100%. You stated my feelings very well.That boyishness and the maturity are both so intriguing! His professionalism, his work ethic, his kindness and wonderful manners that coexist with the silliness, and the ability to see the brighter side of life add up to a very interesting person! He has so many qualities wrapped into one gorgeous package!
