Richard Armitage talks to Total Film Magazine About his Role as a Father in his New Film “Into the Storm”, July 08, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post#08)

The talented British actor Richard Armitage–now starring in The Crucible at The Old Vic Theatre (image TheCrucible--RichardArmitage-asJohnProctor-unwaxed_July0814MarieChloeTweet-bigright) in London to rave reviews–gave an interview to Total Film Magazine for their August 2014 issue that explains what he found compelling about his role of Gary Morris in his new film “Into the Storm” as quoted by RANet in their July 7th news:

“This is possibly not the kind of movie I would have run towards. The storm aspect of it, I swept aside and looked at the bones of the story: a single father, who is father and mother to two boys, and a family that’s already breaking up, and how that’s [exacerbated] by this single day. That was interesting enough. Also I could be normal height. That was very appealing.”

Love that last bit about this height. Richard Armitage has said in other interviews that since he wore such heavy facial prosthetics with his role of Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy of films, that not only does he not get recognized, but he has to convince casting directors on new projects that it is really him. Personally, I think Mr. Armitage’s finesse in letting his characters shine through is a testament to how submersed he becomes in his roles–such that you only see the character he is portraying.

And RANet (www.RichardArmitageNet.com) also kindly shared a scan of the Total Film article (below) that they received from Barbara. Thanks to her as well:

So come August or September–depending upon which part of the world you live in–Richard Armitage’s film “Into the Storm” will be coming to a theatre near you!

 

P.S. I can’t wait to see “Into the Storm” and I look forward to our planned RA Fan gatherings (see event tab above). I’ll be heading to the Chicago event, but ladies are planning viewing gatherings in NYC and Atlanta, too. So be sure and check back here on Sunday for more news about that.
