There has been much discussion in the RA fandom about Richard Armitage's lack of availability since he began work in New Zealand. The only work project he has been in since his ignoble demise in Spooks series 9 was in the sequel to Strike Back where his character was reintroduced only in order to assassinate him! There were a couple of photo shoots and some voice work and commercials since then but most fans have been complaining of the drought. Still other fans have been losing interest or jumping ship altogether!
I appreciate the effort that the fan known as ArmitageWatch and her friends have done recently to keep us all engaged. The Global Watch of North and South last weekend was well planned and went off without any trouble. There are plans to continue this weekend with Robin Hood and Spooks. See the calendar here.
We can't be blamed for thinking Richard might be hiding from us a bit. In fact, it's been noticed from the beginning. If I hadn't circled him, finding RA in this Hobbit group photo can be almost as hard as finding Waldo.
In fact this next video, in which someone impersonating Werner Herzog does an amazing job of narrating the Where's Waldo? picture book, reminds me very much of the whole "where is Armitage?"controversy.
If you are the competitive type and want another challenge,
you should really try the game Tanni Tani created for his birthday.
You click on him every time he pops up and he gets a kiss! Click here to play!
What do you think? Is RA purposely playing hard to get? Does he need his time to stay "in character" as Thorin and find it hard to be himself? Is he just being his shy self?
