Thanks to Louise King for sharing the multi-talented British actor Richard Armitage exercising his Orcrist wielding arms gif (below) on Facebook!
And Richard Armitage’s workout proved successful in him wielding Orcrist, as shown in a gif from Midnightxsun below (and in my side bar for a while now):
And when I shared the Orcrist swinging gif with Louise King over on FB, she had asked my opinion of whether a Richard Armitage KRA3 project might yet come about. So I replied to her with my thoughts, and now share them with my SAL blog readers below:
As to Richard Armitage participating in a Richard III film or tv miniseries project, that would be lovely. As a writer, producer, and even as actor, Richard Armitage would make a mark on this project due to his special interest in the topic.
Richard Armitage’s affinity for this project has been attributed to him being born on August 22nd—the date of King Richard III’s death–him being named Richard by his Father for this historical coincidence, and his growing up in Leicester, England.
And though King Richard III died at the age of 33 years, maybe the almost 51 year old Richard Armitage could portray Richard Neville, the Earl of Warwick, known as The King Maker? That’s a meaty role, if ever there was one.
