Richard Armitage is using his pandemic free time to rebrand

I think we’ve finally got an official explanation for the recent changes to Armitage’s profile — his Twitter header that eliminates his major roles, the weird way that his t-shirts now match his hair color, hiding behind the mop of hair and the ongoing beard — the tattoos and rings in his news role. He’s joining the ranks of a number of actors who’ve felt they were pigeonholed in certain kinds of roles and have consciously changed their brands to get different kinds of roles. Think Robert Downey, Jr., or Matthew McConnaughey. Rebranding was the key to the revitalization of their careers. Experts in actors publicity think this is the way to go and he’s going to be a new case study to show other professionals how it works!

There’s a lot more detail about Armitage’s changes and his future plans in this article at the Hollywood Reporter.

  1. I’m not sure if the link is to the correct article. That takes me to a tech article about Google canceling April fool’s day. Or is it just my phone being difficult?

    • I didn’t have time for the involved jokes of years past but I felt bad about just giving up, too. Glad it is appreciated 🙂

    • not formally, but if you want to catch someone you have to do it early in the day, so most of the jokes are over by noon for that reason.

  13. Happy April 1st! The sad part I think actors really think this. I read this early, had to check my email for something else. Then I realized the note my husband wrote was an April Fools joke for our son or myself or he is just being funny. I could see him writing a note like he did any time of the year. Yes he knew today was April Fools and I also wondered if you where going to write something.

    • If what’s on the web about how to rebrand as an actor is any indication, they definitely think this way!
