WCW: A Little Richard Armitage Eye TheRApy and Olivier Awards #AskArmitage, April 01to 02, 2015 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #726)

My eyes have had one of their flare-ups this past week, so my vision has been spotty. And my having only recently been successful in downloading “The Crucible”–in the SD format–it seems rather ironic that I/eye am too tired vision wise to watch it at the end of the work day. Ha! Maybe I’ll get to it this weekend.

 

My impatience to be able to watch “The Crucible” reminded of that Night Gallery pilot episode directed by Stephen Spielberg where Joan Crawford’s rich but blind malicious woman paid a man for his eyes so she could see for 12 hours–only to have the city experience a blackout when she took off her bandages:

Yeah, I know, violins are playing in the background. Ha! No, I am not rich nor malicious, just vision challenged at the moment.   Ha! Tuesday night as I write this, I’m going to listen to Richard Armitage narrate “Sylvester” by Georgette Heyer (right). RA is a masterful storyteller!

 

So Wednesday, I think a little exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage eye theRApy is what the doctor ordered. Choosing just one image from all of the wonderfully talented Sarah Dunn portraitature of Richard Armitage was not easy. But I love RA’s joyous smile below in this 2014 Richard Armitage portrait by Sarah Dunn–he looks like he is suppressing a giggle. Sighhhhh!

Oh yeah, and don’t forget to #AskArmitage in time for his Best Actor Nominee Olivier Awards Twitterview Q&A on Thursday, April 2nd at 9am EST (New York) time:

 

 

Here was my standard wrap up interview question that I posed:

 

 Update April 2, 2015:  I pasted the Olivier Awards #AskArmitage Twitter Q &A’s in the comments down below.

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

  6. April 01, 2015–Okay, I posed my second and final #AskArmitage question for the April 2nd Olivier Awards Twitter Q&A (starting at 9am EST).

    That NYC 9am time is 8am Chicago time for me–and I will be at work. So I will either have to take an inordinately long time in the ladies room checking Twitter, or I’ll catch the recap later. Ha!

    • April, 01, 2015– I so hope Mr. Armitage attends the Olivier Awards ceremony. It is truly an honor for him to be nominated. He has become a member of that rarified group of actors deemed to have reached the pinnacle of excellence and nominated for a prestigious Olivier Award.

      If Richard Armitage doesn’t win–spat and turned around three times to not jinx it–then his attending shows him to be a “stand up” fellow by supporting “The Crucible” production–paying his dues, as it were. He will also make good connections for future productions he might wish to star in.

      And if Richard Armitage wins? He will be gracious and humble as always–and maybe speechless, with very moist eyes–with his Mum and Dad and other family and friends looking on proudly. And then after the show, batten down the hatches, there will be partying tonight!
