Ask. I will tell you a story.

Richard Armitage – My celebrity stalker

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been joking with family and friends that Richard Armitage has been stalking me this year. Here are the facts:

  • I live in Leeds, and have done for about nine years.
  • Richard Armitage spent three months in Leeds from March of this year, filming for an independent project called “Urban and the Shed Crew”.
  • He was filming less than a ten-minute drive from where I live.
  • Earlier this year, I made plans with a friend to spend the weekend in London as her “plus one” for a wedding on Saturday. We decided to make a weekend of it, and I distinctly remember saying to her: “I’m sure we’ll find something to do in London on a Friday night!”
  • Three weeks later, The Old Vic announced that Richard Armitage would be starring in “The Crucible”, with a run that lasted all summer, including our weekend in the capital. (I bought tickets that day for our Friday night excursion.)
  • I went to Canada this summer, to spend two weeks with family and friends.
  • Four days after I landed, a news item on my Facebook page popped up, stating that Mr Armitage was in Canada, about an hour’s drive away, for several interviews and promotions for “Into the Storm”.

Okay, I know you’re saying that this is pretty weak, flimsy evidence. A series of ridiculous coincidences that signify nothing. Least of all that Richard Armitage is following me.

But… at least it will be the funniest thing I could say to him after Friday night’s performance: “Richard, you have to stop following me. We can only be friends.”


  1. Those are all valid points! However he must be stalking me too 🙂

    Shoe’s on the other foot, what?
