Here’s he’s proclaiming “Iracebeth! Enough!”

  1. I can almost hear it.

  2. Okay! Now I really have to go see this movie. Can’t miss hearing this!

    • This is literally one second of the film. It was worth it for me, but just be aware.

      • 🙂 I’m actually willing to sit through the whole film no matter how short a time he is on the screen. He’s worth it 😉

  3. He was in the movie so briefly, but both times so freaking good omg…

  4. Just thinking this might be the last chance to hear Armitage speaking British… maybe I will reconsider my resistance to the film 😉

  5. Just think when it comes out on video you can play this moment over and over.

  6. Ah thanks for analysing this frame by frame! One loud breath and I missed it

    • It was hard to set my player slow enough to be able to differentiate the mouth movements.

  7. I liked the film, it was much better than I expected. Lots of the roles were small so it made RA’s role more acceptable. He looked so much like John Procter.

  8. Anyone who every questions RA’s appeal should consider that all these people are going to see this movie just because of a few minutes cameo. I don’t know too many actors that have that kind of draw!

    • I think we’re a drop in the bucket, though. The film did half the business it was supposed to do this last weekend.

  9. I can hear him so clearly. It reminds me of how slowly he enunciated the words to Bilbo “I will not part with a single coin. Not one piece of it.” And the dwarves marched by armed for battle.

    • for someone with thin lips he gets a lot of mileage out of them 🙂 speaking and kissing 🙂

  10. love this and his enunciation is one of his sexiest attributes , well, to me at least, i’m addicted to listening and watching him speak 🙂
