He Has His Moments

Richard Armitage 30 day challenge

4.) Q: your least favorite character

A: Heinz Kruger

There are so many rakish characters that Richard Armitage has played to choose between as “least favorite”. It’s difficult though, because he always seems to portray characters in a way that finds me peeling back the layers and sympathizing with them.

run, Heinz, run!

Heinz doesn’t really give us a lot of time or dialogue to get to know him. I suspect he’s a patriot and a dedicated scientist, though it’s not clear which holds more weight for him personally.

he seems to be a peanut-butter lover too!

I don’t despise Heinz, he does have his moments.

smoking is bad...so...bad...
smoking is bad. so…bad…

He’s just the one I’m able to pick apart the least.

  1. I have to watch Captain America! My husband says, “your boy is in that?” (That’s how he refers to RA – “your boy”) *shrugs*. Anyway, I say yes and describe the character, and he just looks at me blankly – the nerve of the man not to recognize “my boy” !


  2. Heinz was so evil, I did not even recognise RA in him at all – I saw the movie in the cinema and never realised that Armitage played him. That leaves only one interpretation: masterful acting!


    1. but see, again, he makes me dig deeper: the way Heinz is so interested in the experiment, you can tell by the look on his face that it’s more than just fighting for his country


  3. ๐Ÿ˜€ yes, the lighter…
    My hubby said with satisfaction in his voice “not this time”…you know, I’m always saing that one day Richard wins Oskar.


        1. yes, he did his first big movie, “Empire of the Sun” (one of my absolute favorites) when he was 13. he’s made most of his career doing the “Independent” movies, where character/plot was more important than recognition value ๐Ÿ˜‰

          it’s a hard thing to balance I’d imagine, doing the character-driven projects that you want to do vs the bigger budget movies that will get your name recognized. I hope Richard is able to find a good balance. ๐Ÿ™‚
