Random bits of Richard Armitage: Sighted in NYC! And MORE

Standard

It’s a wet, chilly, nasty January day. We need some Armitage relief! (We’ll toss in a certain cute (if profane) Hobbit, too.)

Here’s a delightful cartoon by dear Awkward Celeb Encounters documenting Kat’s somewhat embarrassing sighting of “Thorin F**king Oakenshield” himself at an off-Broadway play in NYC. Be sure and check it out! 😉

With mention of a blue plaid scarf, I am also envisioning sweet Harry Kennedy. I bet the blue looked great with his eyes! *thud*

And here’s a quote from Tumblr by Nathan Kress, who plays one of Richard’s character’s teenage sons in Black Sky:

“BLACK SKY” INFO FROM NATHAN’S USTREAM …

How was it working with Richard Armitage? 

“As most of you guys know, I’m a huge LOTR fan, and Richard Armitage, who plays Thorin Oakenshield in “The Hobbit” which just came out actually plays my dad, which was AWESOME but super intimidating because he’s a very intense person who is very … his voice I think is what was most challenging to me because he has such a commanding voice about him. He is yelling the entire time in the movie telling people to go from place to place and it really was kind of scary for me because I was being ordered around by a dwarf king which was pretty trippin’. Took a while to get used to, but it was super fun and he is a super nice guy.”

Nathan has also been tweeting with his fellow cast members, talking about how his heart “swelled with pride” whenever he saw Papa Thorin “being a baller” onscreen in The Hobbit. I adore all this RA love! 😀

Here’s a photo that surfaced of Richard and Martin that I hadn’t seen before. Assuming from attire it was taken during Tokyo leg of the press junket. 😀
