This is the moment. It may never come again. British actor Richard Armitage portraying Thorin Oakenshield (left) in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (THAUJ)–the man who famously claimed that “Twitter, I just don’t get it” and that he “would rather keep what I had for lunch today to myself” in that delightful Cinemax 60 Seconds with Richard Armitage interview (below; and right, my cap)–is being interviewed on Twitter today! So never say never.
And thanks to @TheHobbitMovie, both Hobbit and Richard Armitage fans were invited to provide questions yesterday to #AskThorin. Cute!
So I jumped into the fray with what has become my standard suggested interview question that I would love to see posed to Richard Armitage (@GratianaL is my Twitter handle):
@TheHobbitMovie #AskThorin What question do you wish interviewers would ask you, but they have not? Then please answer that question?
You see, my goal as the interviewer would be to turn the tables on Richard Armitage, or any interviewee. By letting them dictate the question to themselves, I hope to gain an insight into what they think is important–rather than what I might think is important. And just maybe, we would learn something new or he would share an insight that he had previously kept to himself.
And naturally, the interviewers will be receiving hundreds and probably thousands of tweeted questions to sift through for the core questions that they will ask Richard Armitage. So the likelihood of my question actually getting posed to Richard Armitage is zip, nil, nada, and not bloody likely mate. Ha! But I can dream
And you can dream, too. If you could, what would you like to ask Richard Armitage?
P.S. You can watch the twitter feed on Wednesday of the questions and Richard Armitage’s answers at the following link, whether or not you are on Twitter (per Fanny/Izzyblue):
The Tweet Interviewing is still going on at 1:27pm.
