Sizzling Sexy SatuRdAy!  Richard Armitage and Charlie Murphy steam up the screen in “Obsession”, November 26, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1491)  

The upcoming 2023 four episode Netflix British series “Obsession” looks to be quite smouldering, sizzling, sexy, and steamy (see pix below, Grati edit)!

The multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage (above right) portrays a soon to be father-in-law  who enters into a romantic relationship with his son’s soon to be wife, (portrayed by Charlie Murphy, above left).  A forbidden romantic relationship, times ten.

Family gatherings can be so awkward, you know—the stilted pauses in conversations with new family member plus one people you meet, being expected to agreeably partake of your host’s unfamiliar food offerings, copious alcohol consumption, and unexpectedly ending up in the bathroom with your fiance’s handsome and virile father for more than merely powdering your nose on the marble countertops.

And the complicated relationships and betrayals that are at the heart of this drama are certain to be dramatically riveting!  I can’t wait to see “Obsession”!

Thanks to TeresaA for sharing RCA’s tweet link of the article & pix feature about “Obsession”!

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, & peaceful day!  Hugs & Love!  Grati ;->

P.S.  FYI, it looks like Netflix changed the project’s name from “Damage” to “Obsession”.

New Richard Armitage portrait in wide ranging Hello Magazine interview article, October 30, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1486)

Gorgeous Richard Armitage portrait via Hello Magazine’s October 27th wonderful wide ranging interview (see image below).  And thanks to Robin Lynn Thomsen for pointing me to it!

And British actor/writer/producer Richard Armitage is such a self-effacing, humble guy (see an interview excerpt below).

      How do you deal with all the heartthrob attention?

      Richard: “I’m 51 – have you seen the state of me? I don’t get any attention.
As I head towards my mid-fifties, I think I will retire from that title.”

So as to his “heartthrob status”?  I think we’ll have to agree to disagree with him. Ha! Because Richard Armitage is a multi-talented silver fox–and an amazing storyteller!

Fr. Quart’s sapphire blue clergy shirt matches actor Richard Armitage’s eyes, September 14, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1478)

 

Love the sapphire blue Fr. Quart “clergy shirt” (below)  that matches the sapphire blue eyes of the talented British actor #RichardArmitage‘s portraying him!   Thanks to @MooseTurds for sharing!
TH693B~1

And notice that Fr. Quart’s sapphire blue clergy shirt (below) is a lighter colored “echo” of the Madonna’s deeper colored sapphire robes in the painting in the background. With blue being an early traditional color for “purity”–,  prior to wedding gowns shifting to white.
TH64F0~1

Though the conflicted, gun toting, hand to hand combat sleuthing priest Fr. Quart character (below and in the movie trailer) might be stretching the boundaries of  “purity” a bit, it just makes his character—and Richard Armitage’s character portrayal–that much more interesting.

Something About Love blog celebrates 11th Blogiversary, August 25, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1475)

It seems like special days can sneak up on me sometimes, such as my 11th Blogiversary of my Something about Love blog today.  Thanks to WordPress for reminding me!
2022-08-24--Happy12thSALblogAnniversary-from-Wordpress-to-GratianaLovelace

I am most grateful for everyone continuing to read my essays and story posts each year! I’m glad that you enjoy them!  And I have fun writing them!

And I’m especially glad for my muse, the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage who continues to inspire us all with his storytelling and his charming gentlemanliness!

Since I share this commemoration week with Richard Armitage’s birthday, I decided to take a walk down memory lane of several of my RA birthday wallpapers and related images below. Enjoy!

True gentlemen, Richard Armitage and his N&S John Thornton character portrayal, August 08, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1472)

A true gentleman–or lady–thinks of other people’s welfare, treats them kindly, and speaks well of others.

I think both the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage the man, and his John Thornton character portrayal in “North & South” (2004) [below viaTHR] each fit that definition of a gentleman.

The movie poster for “The Man from Rome” starring Richard Armitage, July 23, 2022  Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1470)

  

Love this new movie poster for “The Man from Rome” film–starring Richard Armitage portraying Fr. Quart– as tweeted by the book’s author–Arturo Perez-Reverte!

TheManfromRome--2022--Movie-poster-with-RichardArmitage-at-top_July23-2022viaArturoReverte-Perez-tweet

With the talented British actor Richard Armitage blending his dramatic, action hero, and spy character acting chops with mysticism and investigative sleuthing skills, one should not underestimate the lengths to which Fr. Quart will go in his search for the truth.

This looks to be a most spell binding film of intrigue, mystery, and suspense.  And I can’t wait to see it in Fall 2022.

And thanks to LynneO of the Richard Armitage Admiration Society for sharing the tweet link!

Congratulations to British Actor Richard Armitage for his recently awarded Honorary Degree! July 22, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1469)

Wow!  Congratulations to the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage for recently being awarded an Honorary Degree as a Doctor of Letters from the University of Leicester, in his hometown of Leicester, England!  For more on the big day, visit this hometown feature article here.

 

Below is a screenshot of the award ceremony’s program bio for Richard Armitage (via Pattison College):

“Workout Wednesday”:  A powerful gif of Richard Armitage exercising his arms for wielding Orcrist, via Louise King, July 20, 2022 Gratiana Lovelace (Post#1468)

  

Thanks to Louise King for sharing the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage exercising his Orcrist wielding arms gif (below) on Facebook!

And Richard Armitage’s workout proved successful in him wielding Orcrist, as shown in a gif from Midnightxsun below (and in my side bar for a while now):

And when I shared the Orcrist swinging gif with Louise King over on FB, she had asked my opinion of whether a Richard Armitage KRA3 project might yet come about.  So I replied to her with my thoughts, and now share them  with my SAL blog readers below:

As to Richard Armitage participating in a Richard III film or tv miniseries project, that would be lovely.  As a writer, producer, and even as actor, Richard Armitage would make a mark on this project due to his special interest in the topic.

Richard Armitage’s  affinity for this project has been attributed to him being born on August 22nd—the date of King Richard III’s death–him being named Richard by his Father for this historical coincidence, and his growing up in Leicester, England.

And though King Richard III died at the age of 33 years, maybe the almost 51 year old Richard Armitage could portray Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, known as The King Maker?  That’s a meaty role, if ever there was one.

For more about RA’s fandom’s interest in a King Richard III project involving Richard Armitage, visit Christine Doart‘s excellent KRA3 blog with curated information and events at:
