  1. I never warmed to her character on “True Blood”–but I have to blame a lot of that on the writers and director. If I can overcome my pathological dislike of Joanna Froggatt as “Screechy” aka Kate on Robin Hood (she plays a much more likable character on “Downton Abbey”), then I reckon I can give Rutina a fair shake in this role. 😀 She is quite lovely and a better actress than some he’s had cast opposite him (IMHO).

  2. I was underwhelmed when she was cast, but I, too, am judging her from “True Blood,” and the writers there didn’t do any favors for most of the actors. Willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. June feels very far off, especially waiting for seven feet of snow to melt. Thank the gods for Digital Theatre finally coming through!

    • Yeah, I felt as if they tried to make her TB character as annoying as possible sometimes. But hey, that was a different show with different writers and a very different character. Going to definitely hope for the best. Very excited about The Crucible release being so close now. We haven’t had all the snow (thank goodness, how would we deal with it in Lower Alabama??) but it has been a long, bone-chilling winter with so many people battling various illnesses. Looking forward to a change of seasons!

  4. He does tend to make Twitter posts complimentary to his fellow cast members. One of the things I love about his personality. I’m entirely unfamiliar with this actress, so I have no preconceptions about her.

    • he’s always praised his fellow actors (which hasn’t stopped his fans from feeling differently about them), even before Twitter. He had good words for Lucy Griffiths and Genevieve O’Reilly, in particular.

      • Wow, I don’t remember him complimenting O’Reilly, she of appallingly bad Texas accent. I will have to look for that! I certainly remember him praising Hermione Norris and being sad at her departure from Spooks.

      • And, as I recall, Lucy described RA as the best screen partner. Her affection for him was quite evident in the commentaries from the RH DVDs. I don’t recall her ever disparaging Jonas; at the same time, I don’t remember the same sort of enthusiasm expressed towards JA by Lucy . . . anyway, Richard, as you said, has always been kind and complimentary towards his fellow actors.

    • He is nothing if not well mannered; a true gentleman and real pro.

  5. Meanwhile, the far more interesting thing he did on Twitter today was to follow two film directors with whom I was not familiar (until I just looked them up). Trying to read the tea leaves: projects in the works?

    • From a discussion on the RAC forum, one of these is Karen Moncrieff. Speculation of course that he might be involved in her latest project, which is already in pre-production, a period piece and a romance!
      “Edith Wharton’s Summer” I haven’t read it and don’t know much about it. Yet. Lol

      • IMO he does not need to be in a remake of a VC Andrews novel, but as I remain agnostic with regard to his projects, that’s all I’ll say 🙂

        • If he takes a broody role in a period drama, I’ll be excited. Though I’m not familiar with this one and of course, it’s total speculation.

        • A Wharton adaptation would be awesome (and quite a switch from his recent directions). Agree with you 100% on the VC Andrews!

        • I’m unfamiliar with VC Andrews (heard of FITA but never read it or saw the movie) and hadn’t heard anything about a project involving a remake. What’s the rumor?

      • Interesting stuff. Initially, I thought he was accidentally following fans again. One of the follows is a Finnish director. I’m very interested in what comes out of this.
