MORE NEW PHOTOS: RA in LA: The “Favorite British Artist of the Year (2013)” Sits Down for an Interview with the Anglophile Channel

In December, RA was voted The Anglophile Channel‘s Favorite British Artist of the Year, and today sat down with The Anglophile Channel Creator and Executive Producer Marlise Boland for what appears to have been an extensive interview. Around the same time, other photos were released by the LA British Consulate of RA signing the guest book, and a photo of Marlise and RA standing on what certainly appeared to be the interview set… what a lovely idea, to hold the interview in the British Consulate.

I have to lead with this photo because of the huge compliment RA paid Marlise: “Having a laugh with Richard Armitage~ He had me in STITCHES the whole time. Best interview ever! (Which, interestingly…is what he said about me ).”

I’m so happy The Anglophile Channel and its creator made such a terrific impression!

Another new one: RA accepts the award! (Tho The Anglophile Channel said they had a great time, they also implied that RA may have cheated at office-chair racing! Say it ain’t so! I need to hear more about this!)

Ah-HA! The infamous office-chair race!  I cannot stop laughing! I can’t WAIT to see this VIDEO! Thanks, thanks, THANKS, The Anglophile Channel!

More photos… Sorry for the delay, but – contrary to many people’s opinion – I do have something of a life!

RA even submitted to questions from his "well-wishers," as he likes to call them! Wonder if any of mine made the cut...?

The Anglophile Channel's Marlise Boland reports that they laughed all the way through the interview. I love that she established that rapport with RA; it's so important for him to be relaxed and loose in an interview.

Armitage is star of – among other productions – North & South, The Vicar of Dibley two-part series finale, Robin Hood, Spooks (MI-5 in the US), Chris Ryan’s Strike Back (Strike Back: Origins in the States),and his chilling portrayal of Francis Dolarhyde in Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal.

He was nominated for the 2015 Best Actor Olivier Award for his portrayal of John Proctor in Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible, directed by Yael Farber at The Old Vic/London in-the-round. In 2016, he starred in Mike Bartlett's Love, Love, Love, directed by Michael Mayer, at New York's Roundabout Theatre.

    Thank you, Herba, but I owe it all to Google Translate. It’s a life-saver when you have an international page!
    Danke, Herba, aber ich verdanke alles Google Translate. Es ist ein Lebensretter, wenn Sie eine internationale Seite zu haben! 🙂

  4. Richard Armitage US says :

    Ah, just water… Sorry to disappoint. (But if it had been vodka, that could’ve explained his completely mischievous and relaxed attitude!) That, however, is completely due to Marlise Boland, and her remarkable ability to put him totally at ease.
