Tag Archives: Richard Armitage FAULT Magazine

Richard was in my mailbox. And NOW he’s making a spectacle of himself.


10:10 p.m. and it’s raining. Again. With a repeat performance scheduled through tomorrow and into Wednesday. I jes’ washed my hayah and I cain’t do a thang with it. Ah well, I’ve run some serum through it and am preparing to twist it into pincurls for overnight. I may look like the blonde version of Little Orphan Annie tomorrow, but I am staying home anyway. At least it’s clean.

Good news in the midst of the sogginess and possible Bad Hair Day! I got my FAULT magazine today, direct from–Germany?

“You’ve got a package from–Deutsch Post?” Benny said with a quizzical brow raised as he thumbed through the mail tonight (I hadn’t bothered to slog through the puddles to check the box).

I frowned. “Well, it must–the only thing it could be is the magazine.”

His eyes widened. “Ah. That one.” His lip curled just a little.  “That cost so much.”

“Yeah,” I said with a slightly sheepish smile. “I’ve been wondering when it would show up.”

I tore open the plastic mailer bag and heaved a sigh of relief I’d already been warned a certain hound dog face puffing a cancer stick might meet my eye at first glance. Otherwise, this girl would have been cursing like Porter on a really bad day, thinking those nasty FAULT people had sent Billy Bob instead of the Divine RA.

Turning the magazine over, I gave a little sigh as I looked into the heavily textured visage of my dear Rich.  Mine. At last.

This is my favorite photo. It’s larger in the magazine and those EYES just draw you in. And it happens to be one of two photos with the least amount of photo editing done to them.


I am just not sure you should tamper too much with gloriously imperfect masculine perfection, if you know what I mean–and I think you do.

And now, on to some fedoralady silliness for Monday night. I finally managed to get a few hours of sleep after lunch but I’m still tired and feeling a bit goofy.  And here is the result, uber-sexy RA as you’ve never quite seen him before. My apologies to Richard and to Robert Ascroft, the fine photog who took the original photo. Remember, I am sleep-deprived . . . have a lovely night/good morning!BeFunky_RobertAscroft-02dd

Richard, I don’t that is going to work as a deterrent, dearest.

Oh, yeah, he’s stylin.’


Pip-pip-cheerio, old boy. Where’s your brolly?

Richard talks “Black Sky” stunt work in FAULT interview



From the January issue of FAULT Magazine, courtesy of RA Central

According to the FAULT interview, Richard spent quite a lot of time “swinging around on wires and being whipped around in a wind tunnel” for his upcoming found-footage film, Black Sky. Sounds as if RA got some “danger sports” adrenaline rushes from some of the stunts director Steven Quales set up, including having an 18-wheeler on a crane dropped right in front of him. “With those stunts, you get just one take, and I love it–I find it very thrilling.”

Richard also mentions doing a lot of his own stunts for The Hobbit–but then, we knew all that balletic grace we see in some of those spins had to be the real thing and not his stunt double, right?

No mention of anything else on the horizon for him as yet–but that may have changed since the interview was conducted and the world encountered the awesomeness that is Thorin Oakenshield.

Also find it interesting that, while his elf stage appearance in TH and inspiration seeing “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” are touched upon, there is no mention of RA’s early years performing in musical theatre. The article basically takes us from Pattinson College to LAMDA. (Also, thankfully, no mention of the bloody circus.)

Read, enjoy and tell me what you think, AAAs.

Richard, it’s all your FAULT


It’s gonna be a pretty miserable day here weather-wise, what with 90 percent chance of rain and a big temperature change on the way with it. FMS no likee these huge atmospheric changes. We really need the rain, however, and it’s been too unseasonably warm for December, so I am really not complaining.

Besides, I’ve got a certain gorgeous guy to drool over. Yes, I succumbed and was one of the 200 who pre-ordered my very own copy of the limited edition featuring Richard on the cover (as opposed to Billy Bob Thornton).


Here’s what the editor had to say on Facebook about the cover:

Morning all. Lots of excitement for our Winter issue launch, which is nice to see! Just thought we’d share some details with you about the limited edition Richard Armitage cover. The unique style and effect of the image is created by a particular technique of the photographer – Paula Parrish. She projects the original photograph onto a different surface – metal in this instance – and re-shoots it to get the final version. That is what gives the overall rugged effect – well, that and the subject of the photo, of course… from a Facebook entry for FAULT Magazine.

I found this interesting as I have used a metal overlay with some of my fanart to give it a grittier look–particularly with some of the images of Sgt. Portah.  I paid a ridiculous amount for a single copy of a magazine–especially when you factor in the postage costs–but it’s in support of the actor I do admire and adore. And hey, it’s a limited edition.  Heck, I can talk myself into almost anything where this man is concerned.

Oh, those crystal blue eyes brimming with humor and intelligence–those irresistible smiles and infectious laughs–all that charisma and manliness and gentlemanly nature. I just can’t help it. It’s all your fault, Richard Armitage.

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
