So, I will happily admit, I'm a bit of a geek. Ok, a lot of a geek. I grew up watching Star Trek with my parents, I love anything Marvel, and I'm definitely fans of things like Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Lord of the Rings and so much more.
I'm also a bit of a fan girl. I have developed a huge fan girl crush on British actor, Richard Armitage. He plays Thorin in The Hobbit (though he's also known for roles in movies like North & South as well as BBC shows like Robin Hood).
That being said, Richard has become a bit of an obsession for me, which I'm sure my husband is not thrilled out.
However, last night I came home to find a gift my husband had ordered for me. It was a piece of Hobbit History so to speak. It was a collectors, framed, film-cell from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. When he ordered it, the film cell actually showed a picture of Legolas and it stated "No Guarantee of specific film cell". But since the picture, itself, had Thorin in it, my husband thought I would still like it.
However, when we held it up to the light, low and behold, it was a Thorin film cell!
I screamed (like I said, I'm a geek). I screamed like a 15-year-old fan girl, not a nearly 33-year-old woman.
So now, my husband has no one to blame but himself. He has officially fed my obsession with Richard Armitage.
Yes, this is not a book related piece of information. But it certainly gives you a glimpse into this author's life.
