Welcome! Richard Armitage is a fabulous British actor who deserves to be better known . . . and it’s happening right now as he wows audiences as the majestic and fierce warrior Thorin in the first installment of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy.
Look out world, Mr. Armitage has arrived!
Talk about a total package. This man has talent and versatility like nobody’s business, with the ability to completely immerse himself in a role and deliver a compelling and believable performance. Add in generous doses of charisma, sex appeal and masculine good looks that are off the charts. To top it all off–Richard Armitage is a thoroughly nice guy, a consummate professional and a true gentleman. Very refreshing these days.
As someone who admires, respects and crushes on him like mad, I created this blog to explore the amazing, invigorating, surprising, delightful effect this special fellow has on us–the Armitage effect. Forays into discussions about music, art, films, books and more will appear, but almost all roads lead to Armitage. I hope you enjoy the ride!
