Seriously — this is one of the best Richard Armitage interviews in the last three years. You have to read it. It’s that good.

  3. Not the same old stuff, awesome! is it just me, or do male interviewers seem to get the best stuff out of him lately? I’m thinking also of the guy from the Telegraph….

  4. I like how he’s trying to persuade the interviewer to peak at the tornado and the interviewer is not having it. LOL!

    • Yes, that was hilarious and interesting/revealing too.

      • And? Would you want to see one??

        • As a fellow native Midwesterner (like the interviewer), no, not in person! I do watch the clouds when bad weather is coming in, but would have no desire to seek out or chase the danger.
          How about you? 🙂

          • I’m not sure. A storm can be frightening enough, really. And the worst storms I have ever seen have had a wind speed of under 100 mph.

            So, hmmm, yes, I think, would want to see one. – But only if it was in some distance and only if I could see it from one step out of the basement so I could be back in in a second.

            Being outside? Even chasing one? Definitely not!

            • I live in western NY State and we have very few and mostly mild tornadoes here. As Hedgehogess said any storm can be frightening. A couple of years ago I was gardening and a thunderstorm came up. I wanted to get in one last plant and then hurried inside. Once inside I watched through glass doors as three trees came down in our backyard. One of them crashed through the neighbor’s roof. They called it a microburst where considerable damage can be done in a small area. It gave me a real respect for what extreme weather can do. I would never again stay outside like I did that day.

        • yeah, I have to say that when they are happening, you are just cowering in the basement. This is because there are so many alerts about tornadoes that could happen, that when they actually get severe and the sirens blare, that’s what makes you go to the basement and you know there’s a really severe risk. If there’s one close to you you don’t want to see it. I did see one when I was a teen and I don’t ever need to have that experience again. that said, I don’t think I will have problems watching this …

        • I think it is a complete different experience for us in Europe to see a tornado-movie than for you in the US. For us it’s only thrilling and just another blockbuster, but it is not that real.

          • well, keep in mind that the vast majority of people who’ve seen a tornado haven’t seen one like the ones in this film.

                Es gibt welche in Deutschland, nur glücklicherweise selten und meist schwach. Unmöglich wäre ein großer aber auch hier nicht.

                • I remember driving from Emden to Davos in the days between Christmas 1999 and New Years’ 2000 and seeing horrible wind devastation of trees. Just not from a tornado, I guess.

                  • Probably caused by “Orkan Lothar”. Top wind speed: 272 km/h (170 mph). Or maybe his little brother “Anatol” (top wind speed 183 km/h / 114 mph).

                    Wie auch immer: Es gibt in Deutschland Tornados – ebenso wie sie umgekehrt in manchen Teilen der USA selten und schwach sind. Ist ja nicht alles in “the tornado alley”.

                    So oder so: Vom sicheren Sessel aus sind sie garantiert erfreulicher. Und noch dazu lehr(er)reich. 😉

  7. Good interview. I’ve never seen a tornado except in dreams but I know that I would want to actually see a real one. Not in the sense that I’m going to put myself out there close but I’d like to actually see a twister. We have started to have them here in California but they are rare yet. I’ve been through a hurricane and of course I’ve been through a few quakes growing up so the tornado is all that is left really. They are the physical part of a quake really. A quake sounds like a freight train coming and a tornado can sound the same. I can see the attraction for storm chasers but I also understand how the interviewer feels too. It is terrifying.
