I had a completely different post planned -- more holiday pictures, etc. But then I watched the third episode of Spooks / MI-5! I suppose this post is a spoiler but I have to mention -- the KISS! It's totally squeeable!
|Spooks 9.3 from Richard Armitage Net|
So what has inspired my latest video? I have been thinking about my fascination with Richard Armitage, and while I've been going on for quite a few posts about his eyes -- I never could quite grasp what it was about his eyes that so enthralled me. Yes, the colour was entrancing, the way he blinks while thinking is bewitching, his gaze is certainly mesmerizing. But then it occurred to me that it was the object of his gaze that made the whole package so sizzling, he can turn otherwise normal females into puddles of drool.
The way he focuses his attention on a woman (even if she is an actress -- and he an excellent actor at the top of his game) makes the observer really believe that he is feeling overwhelming desire for her. Although I have enjoyed many romantic films before, I have never seen such longing and passionate emotion play over an actor's expressions before to such a degree. It is totally believable and how every woman wishes her man would look at her. And well... if her man would kiss like him too...then who needs movies?
I really must thank those tireless screencappers at Richard Armitage Net and Richard Armitage Central and also now Skully at Spooks Fan Blog has her own Screencap Gallery. I couldn't do without all your hard work amassing, organizing and storing these pictures!
If you are not afraid of spoilers, check out RAFrenzy's latest post, where she decides she is a fan of Lucas North after all! Season 9 to the rescue! She has a film clip of the lovely kissing scene and also a link to her slide show. Me + Richard Armitage also has a very meaty review of the new Lucas this season. Her site is password protected for the people who are trying to avoid spoilers. (We all seem to be enjoying the kissing scene). :P
