There was a tweet before the premiere started stating Richard Armitage would be wearing the designer Tom Ford and photos would be made available.
Everything happened very quickly, therefore those who managed to capture pix and retain RA's brief interview replies, are to be commended...
Evidently he was first asked how he felt about being in Captain America
RA's reply: He was proud it was filmed in the UK---He also made an observation of how hard Chris Evans worked in the CA role and the importance of the film's message.
Then RA was asked if he will enjoy the Olympics in London..
His reply was to the effect he would like to be in London, but at that time he will be on
the other side of world in NZ.
The female interviewer then told RA he looked so different and he replied "it’s the beard!!"
You've come a long way baby since that guy with heavy stubble verging on a light beard...
Two different entertainment websites have RA's name listed as cast members appearing at the LA(Hollywood) premiere. Marvel Comics will stream it live at this website...
Comments on Thorin Oakenshield's appearance in recently released photo:
EXCERPT: "As I look into the eyes of the newly released Thorin Oakenshield staring daggers while perhaps mistaking the studio photographer for the Great Goblin, I see the determined, sometimes abrasive leader the character needs to be. I see his famed Goblin-slayer Orcrist with its own name etched into the details and nod. I can imagine Armitage’s booming voice and I can run through my own version of the book, and so to me ... he feels just right. I imagine I can see his damaged family legacy and his hatred and anger and need for revenge. I can relate to Bilbo Baggins being intimidated by the aggressive heir to the lost Dwarven kingdom.So far, they got this one right.
Richard Armitage’s Thorin Oakenfield image: “a mighty and fierce warrior”
Following posted with permission from Laurette on Twitter. It's RA's lovely thank you note to a group of his French fans...
Above: Hot uncle & nephew duo..
The list of Captain America cast members who will attend the LA premiere, includes Anne Boleyn ;) who is of course British actress Natalie Dormer. Here she takes us on a tour of Henry VIII's palace Hampton Court. It originally belonged to Wolsey - Henry admired it and his advisor said "it's yours"
