Richard Armitage Strike Back & Sky Publicity Party




                
RA almost always has his arm around a beautiful female...we don't need to ask why, do we:)
Judging from that snug arm around Shelley's waist and the following pic during a similar publicity shot of him & co-star, Julie Graham (Between the Sheets), doesn't it appear Richard develops a warm friendship w/his co-workers.  Of course, he and Julie were required to get to know each other quite well for BTS.



While in the vault searching for the publicity photo w/Julie, came upon other riveting  pics from the past.  Spooks 7...Lucas tossed & turned in the MI5 safe house and finally made a bed on the floor, in order to get some sleep, as had become the norm for him while in a Russian prison for 8yrs...

Richard and his co-stars in RH were given an award as the best newcomers on UK tv - it was probably after RH1(Correction: on 2nd thought, believe they were simply given the honor of presenting an award as the best newcomers)....had a shot of RA with his arm also warmly wound around Lucy Griffiths waist(she looked very happy in that position:) at the following award ceremony, but it must've been among those deleted a few mos back while making space for Spooks 8 pics...

On Spooks first location shoot outside the UK--driving around Moscow to film scenes for an episode of Spooks 7....


The following is adorable - stumbled across it for the first time and really enjoyed a good laugh.  It seems after Richard's daring role as Paul Andrews in Between the Sheets, a reporter talked to his mum.  The latter apparently said that her son's appearance in that type of role did prove to be somewhat embarrassing for her with her friends.  Why are we not surprised? Takes far less for most of our mothers to get concerned with their childrens' behavior and worry what the neighbors might think:)

According to the article, RA commented to the reporter afterwards that he had received an earful from his circumspect mum about the racy role, and added "mum and her friends are probably more shocked by the frank dialogue than the nudity.  People don't talk openly enough about sex."  LOL  Wonder if he received another earful after that last remark:)  Here's the article from 2003.  You'll probably need the puter's magnifying feature...

ricrar,
I'm sure you are right. There are millions just waiting for my call. Or maybe I should leave my phone# here.
I had a date with George Clooney "Up In The Air" today. He is mighty fine too. But RA is 10 yrs younger and with more energy.

Katarina, you never know what's waiting around the next bend in the road of life:) A friend of mine at 40yrs old finally found her soul mate - he was right under her eyes but entangled with someone else for years...a child was involved, so he stuck it out until his daughter graduated from high school. He told my friend he'd always been attracted to her, and as soon as he was free to do so acted on that fact. It's great to see both of them so happy. Dreams often do come true.

believe it or not I've never watched an entire Clooney movie. Maybe the grass always looks greener on the other side of the pond. That and the conviction George dwells in shallow waters:)

Ricrar,

Not watched an entire Clooney movie. You don't know what you have been missing.
I know I sound like a desperate woman, but no not really. I'd love to meet someone. But if I don't I'm having a good life. Still "windowshopping" as you do, as far as GC and RA are concerned, is always fun ;-)

ricrar,

You're right I bet there are some lucky ex-leading ladies out there of Richard's. I'd love to see Richard join the series of Survivors with Julie Graham in England. If you haven't seen it it's really good and I'd love the scriptwriters to give him a role in it.

katarina, thanks...your windowshopping remark inspired the latest poll:)

Hi sue, is the 'Survivors' series available to watch on youtube or somewhere else? Julie gave a fine performance as Alona in BTS. Her obsession w/applying lip gloss was really funny:)

Anon.,
Not sure a mere mortal like me can make head nor tail of the above, but I think I get the gist.

ricrar,
Iona's constant applying lip gloss drove me crazy!!!! I hated that bit. Not sure if survivors is on YouTube but as it's into its second series I'm guessing there will be a DVD due out soon. It's pretty darn good! On this week's episode they had here locked in a lab using her as a lab rat, but thankfully escaped.

Check out Max Beesley if you like British northerners. He's a sweetie and plays a pretty good role in Survivors too! Pity Richard couldn't join the cast if it goes to a third series. Maybe a tough role to rival that of Max Beesley's character and a few spats between them ensue. I love this series!

By the way, almost forgot, Nicholas Gleaves, who played Isabella's nasty hubby in RH3 is also in Survivors. He's got the role of a doctor experimenting on Abby (Julie Graham), although she managed to escape his clutches in the last episode (Hurrah!!!).
