Listen to Taster of David Stephenson Interview...
>Actor Richard Armitage as Lucas North, Spooks
This is my second interview with actor Richard Armitage this year. I’m not his agent, nor to my knowledge are we related. In the trade, we say “He’s a great chat”, which indeed he is. Many actors struggle to articulate well about their characters. This is not the case with Richard Armitage: he seems to know everything about Spooks spy Lucas North, almost as if he’d created him himself. And as you will hear, the scriptwriters don’t really give him much to go on. Not only is a full script rarely delivered before the shooting of each episode but as an actor he had no idea whether Lucas would survive the 9th series. There’s a great segment where he talks about how he would like to exit the series. Let’s just hope it gets recommissioned.
We did the interview in the offices of Premier PR in the heart of London’s Soho first thing one morning in the early summer. You can hear the buzz of the market starting up outside.

Anyone who has been observing RA related tweets the past few wks, will find the following an interesting read....
p.s. Today Harry started to follow me....should I be concerned? Is the pond protection enough once THE master senior spook gets your scent? hehe ;)

Is the cap camouflage in hopes he won't be slowed down by fans while dashing from studio to studio? Nice to see him surrounded by adoring teens....look at the size of those eyes (theirs' - not his this time)...hahaha...and a dropped jaw. If not teens, they should be highly complimented.
