Literally, quo vadis, Armitage?

I’ve asked this in the past, figuratively, of myself and literally, of Jane, but now I’m asking in concrete terms. Filming for Black Sky is supposed to wrap up September 27th. Where are you going, Mr. Armitage?
Will you be going to California to do voice work or audio pickups or other stray work on this film? Or to meet with your U.S. management? Or will you growing your beard out again soon? Back to Wellington for pickups and more work on The Hobbit? Back to England for some other brief project?
Somewhere, anywhere, for A BREAK? (Hint, hint, Mr. Armitage, if you’re reading this — TAKE A BREAK ALREADY!)
And what’s on your mind, if you’re Richard Armitage? Relieved to be getting away from the artificial wind and rain machines? Looking forward to more swordplay, soon? Happy to be leaving Michigan, or sad? Satisfied with your work on this project? Looking forward to the wrap party? Sad about leaving new friends? Looking forward to the return to other friends or family? Thirsting for the next big thing?
Mr. Armitage, I hope you liked Michigan and that this project allowed you to see a different facet of the U.S. than the frantic coasts.
If you’re leaving the U.S., I hope you’re coming back soon. (Sorry, British readers. It was so neat to think of him being almost in my time zone for a change, or even seeing some of the same weather.)
I imagine you in a hotel room, resting after filming, texting or talking, playing with your laptop, looking at a TV screen from time to time — are you a media kid / tech lover? still making dance tracks on your Mac these days? — and I wonder what you’re thinking this Sunday night.
