Happy Birthday: Richard Armitage!

I almost forgot so I am typing this one out quickly because it would be absolutely terrible if I neglected to wish a huge
Happy Birthday!

 to the great Mr. Armitage.

Richard Crispin Armitage was born August 22, 1971 in Leicester, England. He is an English actor who is well-known for his role in North & South, in which he played the dangerously handsome Mr. Thornton. Richard's acting credits also include many other Tv movies and series' including the BBC Tv Series Robin Hood in which he unleashed his darker side as Guy of Gisborne. He has recently been in the spotlight due to his roles in Captain America: The First Avenger and the upcoming Hobbit films.

and just because it's his birthday (and I can't help but post it) here is Mr Thornton....

I wait the whole series for this look he gives Margaret *swoon*

Love Mel xx

Happy birthday to Richard Armitage! I cannot wait to watch North and South. And when I do, I will definitely keep a watchful eye for that look he gives Margaret. :D

Oddly enough it was dad who told me that today was Richard Armitage's birthday! He said something to effect that Janeites wouldn't be talking about Jane Austen today because it was Richard Armitage's b-day. It's strange because he's never played an Austen hero, but I do think he should. Mr. Armitage is completely charming!

I am grining from ear to ear reading this post! I really enjoy watching him act! I love the depth he give the characters he plays. I love to study characters when I read and watch them, so when he plays a character I know it is going to be good, not just because he is hansom, which he is! :)

PS. I would have posted too, but I was not able to get on the computer yesterday!
