What would YOU have done if you’d seen this in a Wellington Park??

Thorin leads the way...

Thorin leads the way…


Watching the fabulous HobbitCon videos on You Tube, I ran across this hilarious one with my beloved Graham McTavish and Ken Stott:   http://youtu.be/-OIzhAN5qsc?t=1m40.

And, forgive me, but I’ve been thinking about it A LOT.

I find myself  wondering what  I would’ve done if I’d see RA dressed like this leading the Dwarves through that park in Wellington…

How would you have reacted?

About Richard Armitage US

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.

His film appearances include starring roles in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, as Thorin Oakenshield; Into the Storm, as tornado-beleaguered Gary Fuller; and other films, including Urban and the Shed Crew (awaiting release), Sleepwalker (available on iTunes and Amazon Video in the States); Pilgrimage (available on DVD in the US and the UK); and Brain on Fire, based on Susannah Cahalan’s best-selling memoir now streaming on Netflix; and Urban and the Shed Crew, coming soon on DVD. 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.

    I would have stopped and watched in wonder. I love the line about the dwarves not seeing themselves as small, just others being freakishly large. Reminds me of chihuahua’s and little dog syndrome.

    • Richard Armitage US says :

      Exactly like the Little Dog Syndrome! Wouldn’t it have been marvelous to see them just in their work-out clothes and those MASSIVE dwarf boots running around that Wellington park? I think I’d have GAPED in astonishment… or put on my NYC hat and ignored them. 😉

    That *would* have been a sight to see. Those thighs alone – if he’d been wearing the shorts we see in these stills – would have had me gasping for breath! He does have really *great* legs! It just cracks me up at the thought of Richard “barking orders” and all the other guys running around at his command! 🙂
