  1. Saturnine really fits several of his characters, though probably not the actor himself.

    • I dunno — he describes himself as moody. However, I don’t think he’s personally dark.

      • Exactly. I’m sure he has his serious moods (probably exacerbated by some roles when he sinks into them), but at the same time, he often comes across as cheerful and having a pronounced sense of humour. So moody, yes, saturnine, not so much.

        • well, nothing about “saturnine” implies that it’s permanent. For instance, one of the connotations of “saturnine” is slow or sluggish — which doesn’t apply to Guy generally but does in this episode. So Armitage himself could be saturnine from time to time. “Saturnine presence” is a frequent usage of this adjective, which doesn’t imply anything about duration.

  2. Mmmmm. I always did like the bad boys.

  3. that’s another word i love and miss hearing/reading! and seeing this straight after the bedtime stories… hm he did hide the sweet really well in Guy, not a word one would ever associate him with. Which goes to prove what a really good actor he is, but then i always thought Guy was a masterpiece! In more than one way 😉
