And be sure to also follow the link to Guylty’s blog post about the bts filming of The Man from Rome/The Seville Communion.
For finally, Richard Armitage is portraying the handsome priest Fr. Quart in The Seville Communion, sleuthing his way through a Vatican mystery. Fr. Quart is the guy in black pants and a dark blue shirt with a clerical collar versus a tie in the bts (behind the scenes) pix below (image via Guylty, with Grati crop):
Or as the actor teasingly changed his twitter header to recently (image via TeresaA):
Sighhh! What is it about handsome emotionally unavailable men–like the “handsome Fr. Quart”–that make us/me go weak at the knees?
Well…Let’s unpack that question/observation:
1. The oh so talented British actor Richard Armitage is also quite handsome himself—check. So would it be too much to ask for the film’s costumer to have a sandy beach scene that Fr. Quart has to walk upon? He could still wear black, just not quite so much of it. Ha!
- Richard Armitage’s character Fr. Quart is supposed to deny himself earthy pleasures of love and lust as a man of God. Sure, that always works. My not having read the book yet—though The Seville Communion is in my Kindle for PC library—I can only hope that he, Fr. Quart, will be sorely tempted. Though my preference is for any love scenes to be filmed discreetly, as in the movies of old—with lots of tender kissing, and perhaps, bare shoulders. Women want romance, not an instructional video. And afterall, there was mention made of a seductive Macarena—and we’re not talking the dance—check.
- And my weak in the knees orthopedic joints needing replacements aside, Richard Armitage and his character portrayals always—with a few exceptions– make me figuratively melt into a puddle of womanly essence at his feet. Afterall, it wouldn’t do to actually faint in front of the man or his character portrayals—let alone the sleuthing priest Fr. Quart, check.

Oh yes! I can definitely see the appeal of Richard Armitage as Fr. Quart! Check.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, & peaceful day! Hugs & Cheers! Grati ;->
