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, 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 ;->
