List of Richard Armitage quotes.

"Live acting is a kind of adventure sport. I don't go abseiling or snowboarding, but I sometimes think that stepping out on stage can have the same kind of adrenaline rush."


"You can spend a bit of yourself when you give yourself to a character. At the end of a job, you have to remind yourself who and what you are."


"I try to be quite a detailed actor. People were really picking up on that. Even if it was just a flicker of the eye or something, they got it."
