A glimpse at young Armitage

Eurovision Song Contest 2002

I am always on the lookout for anything new (or at least new to me) in information or photos  re Mr. Armitage. While browsing through “Richard Armitage photos” on Google Images the other day, I found this pic. Naturally, I was  curious about the young woman in the photo and did some further investigation.

She is Veronica “Roni” Hart, a native and current resident of Huddersfield, England. Roni performs with her friend Philip Cluskey, also known as “Often” as part of the musical duo “Little & Often.” Roni, a dancer since the age of four, has a background in theatre and performed in a number of stage productions, including Cats, Hair and Annie Get Your Gun. She once appeared at the Eurovision Song Contest. I am guessing her connection to Richard is likely performing together in Cats or AGYG–  but I can’t say for certain. What I can say is this picture is in a gallery on the website, with lots of pics with “Little” and/or ” Often” posing with various celebrities. I think Richard is the only name I recognized.

If you want to know more about Roni and Little & Often, pop over to their website at www.littleandoften.net.  Doesn’t Richard look like a darling? And that’s one big-a** mug of beer.
