Richard Crispin Armitage net worth & biography:

Richard Crispin Armitage (born 22 August 1971) is an English film, television, theatre and voice actor. He is best known internationally for his role as Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's film trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit. However Armitage first gained fame in Britain for his portrayal of John Thornton in the British television programme North & South (2004). He is also known for his roles as John Standring in the TV movie Sparkhouse, Guy of Gisborne in the TV drama Robin Hood, Harry Kennedy in the TV comedy The Vicar of Dibley, Lucas North in the TV drama Spooks and John Porter in the TV drama Strike Back.After graduating from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Armitage initially sought theatre work and was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). But he turned to film and television roles when he noticed that leading stage roles went to actors with name recognition who could bring in patrons to fill theatres. After twelve years away and having earned that name recognition, Armitage returned to the stage in 2014 playing John Proctor in the highly successful and critically acclaimed production of The Crucible at The Old Vic.One of Armitage's trademarks is his baritone voice, which he has employed as a voice actor since 2006. While working on the TV show Robin Hood, he was asked to record audiobooks for the first season of that series. Since then, Armitage has recorded many notable audiobooks as well as worked as a narrator on many TV and radio shows and adverts. His flair for speaking in a multitude of dialects, accents and voices has garnered Armitage numerous accolades for his narration skills, including the 2014 Best Audiobook of the Year Award from Audible.com for his recording of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel.

#Quote
1[on his professional quandary, as a six-foot-two actor, in playing Thorin, the Dwarf King] I think the biggest challenge for me is that when I walk into a room they think the wrong guy has come to the audition. It's a compliment, but on a business level it's difficult because it's hard to convince people it was really me playing the role.
2[on suffering an injury on the set of Spooks before his first audition for Thorin Oakenshield] I had taken so many painkillers that I hobbled into the room, sat on my hands and the whole meeting passed in a bit of a blur. If nothing else, I think, with my audition I may have succeeded in showing my ability to convey pain!
3I don't think actors need to go on pedestals. I don't buy it. I think it's a weird thing. It's like you become someone else, like stepping into another universe.
4Live acting is a kind of adventure sport. I don't go abseiling or snowboarding, but I sometimes think that stepping out on stage can have the same kind of adrenaline rush.
5You can spend a bit of yourself when you give yourself to a character. At the end of a job, you have to remind yourself who and what you are.
6I try to be quite a detailed actor. People were really picking up on that. Even if it was just a flicker of the eye or something, they got it.
