RA and His Showing Good Sense
The basis and image source I refer to in the following article, is documented and collected here on RichardArmitageNet.com.
(I for the first time try to link to a day's link on RichardArmitageNet.com, so I hope this link works correctly for the 23rd of June, 2012. But I did not want to snoop pictures from personal Tumblr accounts, which you most likely will have seen by now anyway.)
The whole discussion about RA being shy or hesitant to put himself forward, deriving from a short appearance on a theatre stage, has irritated me greatly, I must admit, especially considering the short sequence we have to judge him upon.
For one, I don't think we as fans can tell anything from that short sequence of him either being shy or not.
For another, my first reaction to his going to the back of the stage and all the actors falling down at once was - what foresight and excellent planning ;o)
So the first comments really made me shake my head in astonishment, when I discovered that this was read as a sign of him being shy.
Would you like to fall on somebody else? I certainly wouldn't.
I'd rather have someone falling on me than falling to an unsure ground with hard and soft parts of other people scattered around. (And be assured, people have really hard parts which are quite uncomfortable to get in sudden contact with ;o)
So the safe, even and reliably hard surface of the theatre stage floor would be much more preferable to me, as I could perfectly calculate the fall.
I certainly would not have liked to lie somewhere in the bulk of bodies in the middle of the stage, however impressive their falling at once was.
So my reaction to RA and seeing the short video was, what utter good sense RA possesses.
Shy? - No.
Clever? - Yes !!!
