As you know, I am quite fond of the exquisitely talented British Actor Richard Armitage’s [portrait by Sarah Dunn in 2014, right]–I should just start abbreviating that as TETBARA, Ha!– character of Sir Guy of Gisborne.
Heck! I have a trilogy of stories built around him–Sir Guy that is–with Book 3 “Sir Guy’s Atonement” that I’m currently serializing. And I have an unrelated to that story line Sir Guy short story that I had excerpted here a while back that I have now finished and am waiting until the first trilogy ends to serialize it–but after a few of my contemporary era stories are serialized.
But I was not always as enamored of the tall dark man in leather, Sir Guy. Shocker! I warmed up to him and his angsty endearing hopeful storyline. Yes, hopeful. Sir Guy wanted to be a better man–and in the end, he was. I was hooked. Hey, I watched the whole series of 39 episodes via iTunes episode rentals–that is true dedication since the download took forever each time. I didn’t have DSL back then, just dial up.
Then I bought the Robin Hood boxed set of all three years of the series and I was a very happy Fangirl. Links for Richard Armitage film and television, and audiobook dvds/cds are available here via www.RichardArmitageNet.com’s (RANet) Amazon affiliate link. And what is an added benefit when you buy through RANet’s Amazon link, the commissions that RANet earns are all donated to one of Richard Armitage’s sponsored charities. So you are helping out a good cause.
And though my first Richard Armitage character love was Richard Armitage’s John Thornton in North & South (BBC 2004) when I first experienced it in February 2010, I have come around to Sir Guy. Oh Dearies, I’m all in! Ha!
We can never get enough Sir Guy–nor Richard Armitage–right ladies? And I just saw @NellinDreams tweet (Thanks!) of this stunning Mabelalexa tumblr image of Richard Armitage as Sir Guy of Gisborne [right]. Sighhh!
Guy/Richard in 2009’s Robin Hood series 3 is gorgeous in this portrait! Hair you can run your fingers through, brightly shining blue eyes, Roman nose you would love to nuzzle, chiseled jaw with stubble, and a hint of muscular neckage underneath his leather jacket, waiting to be nibbled. Sighhhh! He is beautiful–the epitome of male handsomeness!
And the talented Mabelalexa shares more than just Richard Armitage’s Guy character portrait edits on her tumblr. There are John Porter and John Thornton images, too. And many others–stills and gifs. *Grati smiles gleefully*
So take a gander here at Mabelalexa’s Tumblr archive page and enjoy!
Hope you have a gReAt weekend! Cheers! Grati ;->
P.S. I usually try to leave at least two days between posts. But this Richard Armitage as Guy portrait by Mabelalexa just grabbed me. If only. Ha! So I had to share.
