First of all, excuse me if my English is not perfect. I do usually no write in English in my blog, it’s one of my first time.
For my first post for this FanstRAvaganza 4, I have decided to make a ranking of my 5 favorite Richard’s characters :
1) Guy of Gisborne
2) John Thornton
3) Thorin Oakenshield
4) Harry Kennedy
5) Lucas North
Places Nr 1 and Nr 2
Well, I hesitated a lot between 1 and 2 … yes, it’s true.
John Thornton was the first character in which I discovered Richard. I loved his performance in the excellent serie « North and South », he was perfect in the role. And then, Richard arrived in my living room (unfortunately in a figurative way ) all dressed in black leather in « Robin Hood » and my poor little heart could not resist.
So which one should I choose as Nr 1 ? I find Richard better in acting as John Thornton, I love the story, his relation with Margaret, etc. And everything ended well for him, which in not the case for Guy of Gisborne.
And in the other hand… Richard is a great « baddie » and I never saw a « bad guy » who looks so sexy in black leather… So, I choose Sir Guy.
I know, I know… I’m a weak woman…
Place Nr 3
Richard is simply incredible as Thorin Oakenshield in « The Hobbit ». For me, I doens’t play Thorin, he IS Thorin.
I have seen the movie many times, but not just because Richard was in it. He and the others actors were perfect. I can’t wait to see the second part.
Place Nr 4
I find the character of Harry Kennedy adorable and lovely…. and he’s so cute in his striped sweater.
I love his relationship with Geraldine, they are a couple so unusual and so cute that you can’t just resist…
Place Nr 5
Do not be surprised if I put Lucas in the 5th position. I loved this character when I started watching seasons 7 and 8 of « Spooks ». Richard was great in the role of Lucas North. But unfortunately, I don’t like season 9 very much, I don’t like what they have done with Lucas. But it’s nothing to do with Richard, who plays it well, as usual.
And you… what’s your 5 favorite Richard’s characters ?
