Charisma, Affability, Integrity: That’s Our Richard

Standard

Richard Armitage is an unusual actor . . . a man of integrity on and offscreen . . . he took the time to get to know all of us . . . we really would have followed him into war.

Here’s a link to the red carpet interview with Brophy and other cast members (no Richard) in which he pays RA this lovely compliment. It starts at the 3:30 mark.

I think a young actor could do a lot worse than emulating the way Richard Armitage lives his life.

Richard Armitage, you’re a beaut, and I mean in much more than just the outward sense. You are kind, conscientious, good-humored, sensitive, hard-working, generous, polite and well-mannered, along with all that talent and intelligence and charisma to spare. You even have a naughty side.

I’d say you are a lovely, delightful human being inside and out.  You’ve amazed me during this worldwide press tour, handling the madness with such grace and aplomb, always remaining the gentleman, and looking absolutely every inch the movie star as you did it all. You can’t see or hear me, but here I am, giving you a standing ovation.
