For a Monday morning of my first week back to work after the holiday break–a job that I’m very grateful to have–I’m sharing some new Richard Armitage as Dr. Astrov in the 2020 Uncle Vanya film images and new fan art for us to enjoy!
First, thanks to Mat Khal and Fernanda Matias for sharing the closeup below of Richard Armitage as a concerned Dr. Astrov, sighhh (my edit, brt):
And finally, a Mat Khal also shared lovely new Fernanda Matias Uncle Vanya wallpaper (below) is stunningly beautiful and evocative as it juxtaposes the two women—(l.tor.) Sonya and Yelena (portrayed by Aimee Lou Wood and Rosalind Eleazar)—whom Dr. Astrov is caught between:
It has been said that Richard Armitage’s Uncle Vanya (by Chekov) character of Dr. Astrov focusing on the environmental health of the planet in the UV play/film is very relevant for our current times—with our world gripped in a global pandemic.
The pandemic has been our overriding concern that has shaped our lives in the past year—and continuing, with regard to health and everyday life and jobs. And my thoughts are especially with those whose own health or their loved ones’ health has been directly impacted.
Yet the new year of 2021 and beyond also brings with them hope for the end to the COVID19 pandemic when the new vaccines can be distributed widely. Until then, we must be sensible and wear our masks and social distance when in public—taking care of ourselves and others.
May you and yours stay safe, healthy, & happy in 2021! Hugs & Cheers! Grati ;->
