Extra extra!!

So, I did the '30 days of Richard Armitage' challenge last year. I actually cheated and instead of answering 30 questions in 30 days, I answered them in only 3 days.
Have a look at my answers here (part 1), here (part 2) and here (part 3).

But lately, some other bloggers and facebookers have started doing the challenge and I've noticed that the questions are slightly different. So, I thought it would be funny to answer those new questions as well.

The 30 days of Richard Armitage challenge... part 4!

31. The character I would like to meet

I would love to meet Claude Monet. I would jump at a chance to have dinner with this wonderful artist. We would talk about impressionism and the things that inspired him to create his masterpieces. And I would love to hear his thoughts on modern art. 

Richard Armitage played the young Claude Monet in the BBC's The Impressionists in 2006

32. The character I would spend one week with

I would get on the back of Ricky's bike and we would ride across the UK for a week...or maybe even much longer ;-)... that would be the perfect holiday!

I may just not bring him back at all ;-) ... Richard Armitage as Ricky Deeming in the George Gently episode Gently Go Man

33. The character I would want to have a longer affair with

This is a difficult one... If I was single, I would probably fall head over heels for Lucas North. I know, I know, with all that baggage (8 years in a Russian prison and all that jazz) he's probably not the best boyfriend material, but I know for a fact that I would not be able to resist him. For the record, please note that I still refuse to acknowledge the existance of John Bateman. Just so we are absolutely clear about that little detail.

I love Lucas, I really do... :-)

34. The character I would want to marry

Honestly, none of them. Although I think Lucas and I have similar personalities, marriage is something that takes just a bit more than that...

But if I absolutely had to select one of Richard's characters to marry, I would probably go for John Thornton. I don't think any woman could resist a real gentleman. Even though he's a mere tradesman (manufacturer, I beg your pardon), I'm sure JT is as much a gentleman as any man of noble birth could be. And he reads Plato: there's nothing sexier than a man who knows his classics ;-)

Mr. Thornton finishes a book before returning it to its rightful owner. RA first caught my attention when he played cotton mill owner John Thornton in the BBC's adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel North & South.

35. Describe Richard in 3 words...


36. Richard should work together with this actor or actress...

Another difficult one... it really depends on the film and the character they would be playing. But one thing is certain: Richard and Hugh Jackman could definitely play brothers!

37. My favourite crossover pairing
John Porter meets Homeland's Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) - They both look good in scarves! :-)
No, I honestly think they would make an excellent team...

38. I would like to see Richard doing a cameo in this film/series

I love to see Richard in intelligent drama, so he would be a perfect villain in Sherlock!

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in the BBC's modern interpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes

39. Something I would like to know about Richard

Richard, do you still enjoy dancing or have you given it up completely?
