Armitage is a Stranger in Moscow

I really like the thought of Richard Armitage flying over Europe all the way to Moscow to film the seventh episodes of Spooks season 7.

This is my absolute favorite clip of RA as it’s quite casual and candid.

He clearly has a great sense of humour and knows how to charm the ladies.

I’m surprised the woman holding the camera (I read somewhere she was a producer on the show) did so with a steady hand.

I like this clip because it isn’t an official interview, therefore it seems like RA’s guard is down and it gives us an insight into what he might be like on set.

And let me tell you, what I see I like 🙂

By the way, the next time you watch the episodes in Moscow, please notice that, although it is shot with a grey filter and Ross and Lucas are wearing heavy coats, everyone around them is sporting T-shirts and summer dresses.

I understand that spies have many gadgets they need to carry on their person and a weapon to conceal, but surely wearing autumn / winter clothes smack in the middle of summer would make you stick out like a sore sweating thumb 😉

Ah, the (not so well achieved) illusion on television.
