I don’t even know where to begin.
For those of you who are just tuning into me, I wrote letters to all of The Hobbit cast when I went to visit them on my Make-a-Wish. I had gotten a response from the actor who plays “Oin” just a few weeks ago. Just now, I was sitting on my floor making cancer ribbons to put on our Marching Band uniforms, and my Aunt walks in with a letter/package from Sebastian; Peter Jackson’s assistant.
I open it, and my heart literally jumped into my throat. It was from my biggest idol, Richard Armitage.
He wrote a pretty lengthy (and most educated) letter. It was heartfelt, and you can tell that he loves his job and takes it very seriously. In the letter it says:
“I am enclosing some of Thorin’s chain mail to keep you ‘strong’.
He also included the name of the flute piece we were discussing (meaning he remembers our conversation…I am so happy).
I am speechless…this was so kind of him. I am beyond words. All I can say is, I am so proud to be in the Armitage Army.
