"We need an audience, so everyone is very excited and ready to go," Armitage told UPI in a phone interview. I've been in the rehearsal room for four weeks and I think I've laughed every day, which has been a real tonic," he added.
"I've wanted to work with Michael Mayer for a long time.
Yael is cooking something which at the moment feels like it’s - and should be - too hot to handle.” Armitage is a noticeably calm presence but he talks with passion.
I ask him how it feels to be facing The Crucible’s agonising climax over and over for the next couple of months.
But it was in 2002 that Richard had his first major TV role, playing John Standring in Sally Wainwright's Sparkhouse, a modern interpretation of Wuthering Heights. First as flirty lifeguard Lee in all 4 episodes of series 5 of ITV's Cold Feet, then in series 2 of Ultimate Force playing Captain Ian Macalwain and finally, shown on ITV in Nov/Dec 2003, he played Paul Andrews in Kay Mellor's Between the Sheets also starring Julie Graham and Alun Armstrong.
Richard then landed the role which was to see his career take a giant leap forward, that of the northern cotton mill owner John Thornton in the BBC dramatisation of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, broadcast in November 2004.
His portrayal of Thornton was applauded by fans and critics alike.
And now he’s playing a cold-hearted Nazi infiltrator in the much anticipated whizzbangy film version of Captain America.
He incarnates SAS author Chris Ryan in the Sky series Strike Back, was Robin Hood’s scowling nemesis Guy of Gisborne, and infamously revealed himself as a ruthless killer - not nice Lucas North but nasty John Bateman - in the most recent series of the BBC’s Spooks.
