Richard Armitage Legenda 77: Stuff worth reading

Legenda offers a brief, non-inclusive index of stuff about Richard Armitage that I noticed and enjoyed since the last episode. It doesn’t usually include materials presented on the major fansites, which I love dearly, but which are linked in the sidebar. Because I always forget or just miss stuff, please add additional pieces of interest via link in the comments.]


A shorter one this time, because although the last one was late, I am going to try to hang on to the Saturday date as the spring term ends and we go into summer term. But the day may change. Watch this space.


Coolest thing ever!

Angie’s blog got picked up in the publicity blitz in Sydney this week! Couldn’t happen to a nicer person, and as a former journalist, she must, I guess, be really pleased at the recognition! Give her some love!

Well, well, well


Seriously. Richard III. You’re not too old!

Quick clarification, because I’ve been asked so many times — although I/Servetus may have personal preferences, “me + richard armitage” has no official opinion on what work Richard Armitage should or should not do, and is unlikely to express a specific one with much forcefulness. (This position was articulated long ago; see arguments here or here, for instance.) I definitely want Armitage to get what Armitage wants.

Richard III makes it onto Legenda and this blog because Mr. Armitage himself has said so many times (even before current fans started asking him) that it’s a project that interests him. The second that Richard Armitage says, in so many words, “I’ll never do Richard III,” I’ll be done with this, or conversely, the second he says, “I’d love to do ____________ [fill in name of any other current projects that fans have formed support networks for, or indeed any project at all],” I’ll be right there, cheering him and the project on.

Make sure you read warnings on any of this stuff before continuing past the beginning.

OT, collateral attractions, and things I think about

  1. Thanks for the link.

    That Google alert made me do a double take when I received it 🙂


    • I know — then I saw Kansas City and I thought, Richard Armitage has never been in Kansas City in his life 🙂


  2. Thanks for the link. And the commentary!! 😀


  3. Hi Servet,
    Thanks for the link!


  4. Thanks for the links – I hadn’t read the Popcorn Taxi transcript, but now I know to skip the hosts opening remarks for the sake of my blood pressure!


    • Unfortunately, it’s been scrubbed in line with the interviewer’s prejudices. So I’d suggest reading some of the summaries that appeared on tumblr and elsewhere.


      • I did see something along that line and a rather crass comment about wet seats…really? Why is that necessary in anyway?


  5. Thank you as always for linking me up. I love that Thorin Santa picture. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  6. Thanks for the Link 🙂


  7. Just back from a country break (= flaky internetb access) and soaking up all Legenda recommendations. Thanks for the link to my photography rant. And *ooof* goes Hebrew? Really? That’s cool!!! now off to do a lot of catching up!


  8. Fascinating interview with Rupert Everret, thanks Servetus:)


  9. Shame on me! ..Rupert’s last name is Everett, of course!


  10. Thanks for all the interesting links and mentioning my blog again!


  11. Oh my…you got one of our Kansas City Richard Armitage alerts. They still come across from time to time….


    • seriously disturbing. Although I also still get foreign policy related alerts as well. That Richard Armitage is still alive and well, too 🙂


  12. […] a brief, non-inclusive index of stuff about Richard Armitage that I noticed and enjoyed since the last episode. It doesn’t usually include materials presented on the major fansites, which I love dearly, but […]
