Wondering about Armitage
Another fan has apparently managed to meet him (h/t portosentido). I don’t know the story. But click on the link anyway. See the photo. Look at his lips.
This is the kind of photo that sends my imagination into overdrive. No idea where he is — an outdoor venue of some kind? But why the suit? Especially: why the suit in Detroit? Way too many clothes for anything too casual.
This is also exactly the color combination I’d choose to suit him in from afar, though he looks a bit washed out here. Grey suit, blue oxford shirt. No tie. Untucked shirt. Trouser break looks like it might be okay — hard to see, but the posture of his legs make him look somehow neater, more turned out, than the disarray of the outfit itself. Pictured after dancing and a few drinks? A night at a club? Is this out fit a bit formal for clubbing in the Detroit region? Is Richard Armitage enjoying himself? And if so, how? That’s the prospect that spurs the brain and the imagination.
Whatever you were doing, Mr. Armitage, I hope you had a wonderful evening! And thanks — as always — for being so generous to fans who approach you.
[ETA: info on FB suggests this was taken after / outside of shooting. OK, so he looks fantastic disheveled. And the gratitude for his friendliness stands.]
