Richard Armitage’s new  “Stay Close” mystery series premieres at Midnight tonight  on Netflix; and RA’s 2022 New Year wishes, December 31, 2021  Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1436)


Are you looking for a way to usher in the new year of 2022 with a bang?  But comfortably in your jammies at home?

Then tune into Netflix at midnight tonight for the premiere of  the talented British Actor Richard Armitage (right via WSJ, via RCA tweet; Thanks!) and colleagues in Harlan Coben’s  new “Stay Close” mystery series!

And here are links for two recent article interviews  with Richard Armitage about “Stay Close”, his acting process, and how he came to be an actor:

“At the Royal Film Performance of “The Hobbit” in London in 2012, my family attended. Before the screening, I was allowed to take one family member to meet Prince William. I took my mother. 

After the screening, as the royals left first, Prince William passed my seat, touched me on the shoulder and said, “Brilliant performance.” My mother was visibly shaking. She saw me do what I’d said I was going to do. “

2) And then Richard Armitage tweeted today’s RadioTimes published interview article “Richard Armitage talks ‘Stay Close’, Netflix, and his untapped fantasy”.  Richard Armitage pix (right) courtesy of Rado Times (Thanks!). Uh, the article title’s use of “fantasy” is a play on words.  But hey, we can dream.  Ha!

And here is the Radio Times article link,in case you’re not on Twitter:

I’m looking forward to watching “Stay Close”—not the least of which is because of its lead actors Richard Armitage, James Nesbitt, Cush Jumbo, etc.  And in addition to James Nesbitt being a former acting Colleague of Richard Armitage’s (in The Hobbit trilogy of films), but British actress Jo Joyner is also in a supporting role in “Stay Close”–she had portrayed Richard Armitage’s John Thornton character’s younger sister Fanny in the BBC’s North & South, 2004 miniseries.   So it’s really fun to see these actors (Armitage, Nesbit, & Joyner) interacting in different roles on this new project “Stay Close”

Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, & peaceful weekend, and a very Happy New Year 2022!!! Hugs  & Happy New Year’s Cheers! Grati ;->

P.S.  And as an added bonus, here are Richard Armitage’s New Year 2022 wishes tweets:

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
