We recently had the chance to sit down with the one and only Richard Armitage to talk about his upcoming fantasy epic The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. But before all that, we had a really important question to ask.
We asked our followers on Tumblr and Twitter to send us their questions for Richard and managed to get a few burning questions answered. And one of the most popular questions was a simple one - is he more of a cat or dog person. His answer, in picture form, follows.
The English actor, who plays Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit trilogy, had a little more to say on the subject. "I’m a dog person. I don’t have a dog but if I were to have an animal it certainly wouldn’t be a bloody cat! Theyre just temperamental and dogs are just cute and faithful" he continued.
And he illustrated these thoughts thusly.
That's a pretty definite answer, which puts the Richard Armitage with Cats Tumblr firmly in the realm of fantasy. Maybe it's time to start a Richard with Cute Dogs version...
We got a couple of other questions in, including asking Richard about a watch he wears a lot and what book he's currently reading. We'll have those answers up just as soon as possible!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is coming to cinemas from the 13th of December. Stay tuned for the full interview with Richard Armitage and get some words from Elvenking Lee Pace right here!
