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!


    • 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

    πŸ˜€ 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.


        • 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 πŸ˜‰

          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. πŸ™‚
