My new November 2021 sidebar image CelebRAtes the 17th Anniversary of Richard Armitage in North & South (2004), by Gratiana Lovelace, November 07, 2021  (Post #1423)  


Though my 2010 introduction to the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage’s character portrayals (RA portrait below in 2021, courtesy of KatieC) came more than midway through his now  twenty nine years and counting tv, film, stage, and audiobook, etc., career–it was with his iconic portrayal of John Thornton in the 2004 BBC production of Elizabeth Gaskell’s period novel “North & South” set in the industrial revolution in England that drew me in as a solid Fan of this and his other works.

So my SAL blog’s November 2021 top right sidebar image celebRAtes the 17th anniversary of Richard Armitage in the BBC’s “North & South” (2004). The image below (and at my SAL blog’s top right sidebar) is courtesy of Netflix, which ran the N&S (2004)  miniseries’ four episodes for a time about two years ago.

And below is a bonus N&S (2004) bts image of Daniela Denby-Ashe and Richard Armitage in costume as Margaret Hale and John Thornton, respectively, (image courtesy of fanpop):

And, of course, one cannot reminisce about this romantic N&S story of John and Margaret without sharing some of  their final kisses at the close of the miniseries (courtesy of Tempella Tumblr, and the gif is also in my right sidebar):

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, & peaceful day.  Hugs & Cheers!  Grati  ;->


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
