Ya know, the watch Richard says belonged to Lucas really does look very familiar...wonder why;) Maybe because I've seen it almost everyday for
3yrs??(Look at the header and ye shall see it too) OMG! I just checked and it's 4yrs this Nov. *Whew!* I return to this RA blog the way the Lucas watch returns to RA. Karma...in the stars?...coinkydink?
INTERVIEW EXCERPT:So what's the deal with that watch you always wear Richard?!
"Is it this one? [lifts up sleeve to reveal a very fancy watch]This was a prop from Spooks!"
He goes on to tell the story: "One day they saythat the woman from Swatch is coming to give you one for your character, there were three of them. And you know Swatch is like those rubber watches. And they turned up and these were like Omega watches and they said yea they’re the same company! So I picked this watch for the character which I thought was kind of cool and when the series ended they said ‘we can’t sell this so you can have it!’ And I’ve never owned an Omega watch before so I said ‘I’ll take that!’"
We then asked if it just became the fancy watching he wears everywhere?
"Well I don’t know I never thought it was fancy at the time and I kept leaving it in the gym and they kept saying I shouldn’t because it’s quite an expensive watch. But it’s managed to keep finding its way back to me so it’s my favourite watch, it’s my only watch!"

Fellow dwarf Graham McTavish has a role in upcoming tv series Outlander which is currently shooting in Scotland. Must be quiet up there judging from this series of his tweets. First & last are about RA. Funny mental image is inevitable after reading...
Greatly looking forward to the Outlander series - First of many links with interesting details:
Latest development in the meow/woof incident. It appears he might be warming up to the idea.
