Some time ago, I came up with the idea to collect questions (while I already have a bulk of them regarding “Spooks”).
But why do I want to ask Richard Armitage questions and would like to know the answers, when I don’t bother with asking other men?
Before I start deeper in my journey of discovery into this question, I must add that this all for me is a very (extremely strong !) hypothetical question, because I don’t believe that I will ever ask the questions for real and I am not even sure that I want to ask Richard Armitage those questions!
Have I confused you enough by now?
Fine, then we can start with my further discovery into this question during this following FanstRAvaganza week.
For me, it is something different to ask a ‘professional’ question about King Richard III, as I did just now via the digital distance of Twitter
@thehobbitmovie #AskThorin How did role of Thorin prepare for #RichardIII and what plans does #RichardArmitage have concerning this film?

(Though it was not answered – but did I really expect it would be?
Not really, after already hundreds of questions before and thousands after mine.
And the question per se is not answerable in 140 signs or 140 sign-bits and furthermore is not at a stage to be answered or allowed to be answered in a ‘The Hobbit’ context.)
But with those questions I enlist here in the next posts, I would rather like to hear the opinion of RA, without him needing to think about the marketing of a film or check his answers in regard of a financier. So this whole premise could only take place in a very hypothetical environment not likely to ever happen or even exist, but which can be enacted in a fictitious part of my mind.
Because the RA I ask these questions is fictional for me and so can become a version of a man I would like to talk to, while in real life those men I can talk to are really numbered and I can count them on one hand and do not even need all fingers. (As one of them already is my father, men in my acquaintance I find worth to talk to and their answers I deem something worth to get, are really few.)
How do I envision RA to answer those questions? I think the new interview in Lorraine’s Show last Wednesday (06.03.2013) with his lovely attentive and oh so ‘understanding’ attitude, came very close to my ideal of attentive listening. The attention he gives his partner in the discussion, is addictive, the understanding he expresses or seems to project (I have no idea if it is real or just a very good way to encourage the interlocutor), but it seems to work perfectly at all times and certainly has its effect on me.

Still, I see this whole topic of really asking RA questions as very hypothetical, as RA would break out of the frame I gave him access to in my life and would from fictional character suddenly become real, if I really should meet him to ask those questions.
During the week, I will examine more, what that for me would mean. I hope, at the end of the week you will know more about why I fear that and so can’t imagine myself standing at a red carpet event or another event where I would meet RA in a fan-encounter.
But under this premise, I can fantasise about asking questions and in the next posts can start with a few of the questions I would like answers to.
