Was andere über ihn gesagt haben:
Sally Wainwright (Drehbuchautorin von Sparkhouse):You asked what it was like working with Richard. You'll be delighted to hear he is a truly lovely, pleasant, good-natured man! He is what he looks like. It was a hard shoot, Sparkhouse. We were up to our knees in mud at 4 o'clock in the morning shooting some of the scenes, but the cast were delightful, despite the conditions we sometimes found ourselves in!

Brian Percival (Regisseur von N&S):He played Thornton so well I guess he just made it his own and I doubt anyone else could ever have come close to what he brought to that character. Richard is a lovely man and I'm sure it will be another great success for him.

Daniela Denby Ashe (Margaret Hale in North&South):We had a great relationship and clicked immediately, and he really was brilliant as Thornton. We had a lot of good times on set because it was such a long shot (13 weeks) and I'm sure we totally annoyed the hell out of everyone with our giggling, which was just to keep ourselves going, really.

Dominic Minghella (Produzent und Drehbuchautor von Robin Hood):One of our great casting coups is Richard Armitage (who plays Sir Guy of Gisborne, the Sheriff's right-hand man), a modest man of sharp intellect and smouldering good looks. He has, shall we say, an impressive female following. Online discussion groups have been known to crash under the weight of his virtual fans' effusive admiration.
Today, he knocks on my door with a pencil and pad. Can he ask me some questions about his character? I tell him, truthfully, that I can't believe he is here – an actor of his talent, sitting on my sofa, talking to me about playing this part. I feel so lucky. Suddenly I stop myself – do I destroy what little (gamma-male) authority I have by being so candid? I glance at him. My concerns are unfounded. He is blushing. A man of his talent. I remind myself that the only folk more insecure than writers are actors.

Richard Curtis (Drehbuchautor von Vicar of Dibley):I can't imagine ever doing a piece of work which doesn't have Richard Armitage in it again. He was so charming and so tough coming into a sitcom where everybody's known each other for, you know, a lifetime, and he couldn't have been sweeter.

Liza Frank (Autorin von My Celebrity Boyfriend):I've known Richard for about seven years as we worked together on the RSC's production of The Duchess of Malfi so I can promise that he's lovely. [...]
And of course Rich was singing along and air guitaring! He was a great voice and an even better sense of fun.[...]
Now, Richard. He was a great sense of humour and we used to muck around a lot when we were working on Malfi. He always used to make me laugh and it was a joy to work with him.[...]
Keep on adoring Rich - he's just lovely
Lucy Griffith (Marian in Robin Hood):And, I just absolutely love working with Richard. He’s probably the best scene partner I’ve ever had. [...]. But, Richard and I just understand each other quite well. He allows me to say what I think about my performance and his performance without getting angry about it, and the other way around. I often will ask him if there’s something he can suggest to help me out, or if he can give me a reason. If I’m finding something difficult, I can ask him why he thinks that might be. We have a very good friendship as well. We laugh a lot together. And, he’s just very professional. He really, really prepares his work, and he’s very generous. He’s prepared to help you as well. He does whatever he needs to do, to make things easier for you, which is just wonderful, really.
