Ever since I saw Eva and Marg's posts, I spend part of every evening on You Tube, watching North and South again. On my computer, the You tube screen measures about 9" by 6". Somehow, in spite of this tiny size, Richard Armitage still manages to sizzle and brood and has this most amazing deep voice. He, well, more than gives Colin Firth a run for his money. Possibly the best hero of a Victorian/BBC costume drama, ever. I've cried, I've laughed, I've urged her to 'look back' along with Thornton........
What will it be like when I can see it on our tv? which is much larger than 9X6! and view it continuously, whole, without 10 minute breaks? When will I find a DVD copy? when will I find a copy of the book to read? these are the questions haunting me through the day. At least I am thinking about a book!
Thanks, Marg and Eva!!!!
And I heard something about him being in Robin Hood, too.....I also made a boo-boo in my last post, about the role he played on The Vicar of Dibley. He didn't play Tristan, he played the one the Vicar marries, and I apologize, we've only seen the episode twice, and we haven't been able to get the DVD yet of the wedding, so I can't remember his name. James?. All I remember is he plays an accountant (and his voice) . And what happens to Geraldine on her wedding day....oh yes.
Here he is, discussing how he got the role. An interview with him on the DVD. Not that I have the DVD yet, of course. He's read the book. *sigh*
