Were we to come up with our own spy disguise–a la Richard Armitage as Lucas North in Spooks or as Heinz Kruger in Captain America–what would it be? And we have to have gadgets and such. So feel free to respond to the questions below–as I have done–as if you were a spy, living a life of intrigue, deception, and lots of frequent flyer miles. Ha!
1)What is your spy name or alias? GRATI HARI
I’ve styled my name after the famous woman spy Mata Hari pictured with this post:
I can only guess that I, like Mata, would use “misdirection” in order to discombobulate my fellow spies. And you can see from my/her outfit, I/we have nothing to hide. *wink* Go ahead and frisk me, fellas. Ha!
(Here is the Mata Hari image link at: www.freeinfosociety.com/media/images/3648.jpg)
(Here is a link to an article about Mata where I found her picture: www.freeinfosociety.com/article.php?id=455)
2) What country do you want to come from? And/or accent/language you would most like to adopt?
MOLEVENIA where English, Russian, and French are all spoken with a Midwestern U.S. accent.
Grati Hari: Мне нужна ваша код доступа. Где вы храните его? (I need your access code. Where do you keep it?)
This is a loaded question if ever I created one. *Tee Hee*
3) Who is your Spy Boss? What is his/her code name?
LUCAS NORTH Well gals, it’s the only time I’ll get to say that I’m “under Lucas”. *Swoon* *Thud* Sorry for the sauciness. I just couldn’t resist.

4) Who or what is your favorite “Spy Candy”?
Oh? Tattoos in strategic places–on my Spy Boss Lucas.

5) What is your favorite spy gadget and why?
I think a man like Heinz–in a gRAy pinstripe suit with broad shoulders and a tapered waist, sighhhh!–with his own submarine doesn’t need to dive to crush depth before he claims my heart.

So, come on gals! It’s your turn to be a spy. Cheers! Grati ;->

Thanks to Daria for collecting all of the “Richard bits” from Captain America for everyone to enjoy in this thrill ride of a video! Michaela Servetus reminded me of the video with her “Comic Con Armitage” blog post yesterday.
P.S. I couldn’t resist adding one more gorgeous image of Richard Armitage as Heinz Kruger in “Captain America: The First Avenger”. Seeing Heinz here makes me wish his character was one of the good guys. Sighhhh! But, Richard Armitage portrayed his villain Heinz with gusto! This is an amazing wallpaper designed by Angelfish. Enjoy!
:D ! (my Spooks Forum cover name is Mata Hari Ros… I like Grati Hari better – NICE!)
I’m from somewhere like Azerbajian ( but isn’t) or Kazakstan (but isn’t). Perhaps it’s Vienna…
French accent for MHR would be the most seductive, a la Audrey Tautou.
I want Lucas’s thingy for opening car doors. Because I’ve locked myself out of the car a couple
No boss – free-lance. Triple agent?
Spy candy? Lucas North’s hands…or eyes…or cowlick…or big, running feet……..
Hi Fitzg (Mata Hari Ros)!
My heart skipped a beat when you said you wanted Lucas’ “thingy”? Me, too! Oh! You mean his wireless car door opener. Ah, too bad. Ha!
I love French accents too. But I only use them in my boudoir when I’m seducing another secret agent–for my country, if course. *wink* I’m happy to “take one for the team”. Ha!
Love your choices!
Cheers! Grati Hari ;->
It is called a sonic screwdriver. :-)
Ah! Thanks Jane!
I don’t remember seeing this gadget in action on Spooks. But then, I’ve only watched most of the episodes once (in Series 7 & 8).
Cheers! Grati Hari ;->
