New Armitage interview with bits we haven't heard before. Can't Post

This is an interview RA obviously did on 07 March in London after the Lorraine Show. He's got a bad cold but is as charming as ever. The interviewer asks some different questions and so gets some different answers. I especially enjoyed the behind the scenes anecdotes and the comments both from PJ and G del T about who they made films for.

You MIGHT be able to get straight through to the UK site. Otherwise, go to RANet (link below) and look at the info on 10 March page where there is also a new radio interview. The filmed interview is set out in 8 very short vids marked 07 March and can currently be found about three lines of clips down.

Thank you ,Ali, from the RANet site for finding this.

should be on a t-shirt [In reply to] Can't Post

The one line that I remember best from the interview. After RA tells the funny story about PJ's trouser falling while demonstrating the "running down the tree".

"Pants-droppingly good! So good your pants will actually fall down!" Laugh

Thanks, Shirehorse, for having your ear to the ground. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd love to see a return to Dibley and RA with a house full of kids.

well.. [In reply to] Can't Post

It is the kind of scene we could get for the traditional Richard Curtis, Comic Relief special.

Would be funny if they did it with 13 kids at a birthday party Wink

I think we've got ourselves a new phrase to use [In reply to] Can't Post

in our everyday speech!

"That was pants-droppingly good!"

Of course, people will just look at us and wonder what the heck we mean! LOL! Thank you Richard Armitage, for handing us a new expression!

The expression is a great one. However, I really need to try and get the image out of my head. LOL.
