That’s Vicar of Dibley not “video on demand” although that would be kind of fitting, too, as the special about VoD was shown last night on a pay channel (i.e. vod) that not everyone has access to. I haven’t seen the full video yet – but am hoping that someone possibly recorded it and will share it soon. Or that it will eventually be made free by the producers, anyhow. But I’ve seen pictures pop up here and there, and RA looks relaxed and happy, as he giggles and relives the experience of being on set for VoD. The most comprehensive sets of gifs and screenshots I have seen on Astrovian’s tumblr. I am going to embed some of her posts here, but I would also ask you to go and see her tumblr stream for more – and if you can to give her some love and thanks there.
[Spoiler warning – just in case you’d rather wait until you can see the whole thing yourself]
On being offered the role:
On Harry Kennedy as a character:
I’ll leave it at that. Lots more goodies over on Astrovian’s tumblr. Please go and see there – all credit to her.
Ok, and an immediate edit: Deirdre, who initially also alerted us on Twitter that this special was going to be on, managed to capture some of the interview. Picture quality not as good as the gifs, but here you can see RA, hear his gorgeous giggle and get the whole context:
More clips – and all thanks and love for her – on her Twitter, please.
A word on the look itself – I’m having visions of Guy of Gisborne, season 1. And that look actually still suits the man very well, even though it is now a stunning 15 years or so later. And guys….. nape curls!!!!! NAPE CURLS!!!!
I am wondering when this interview was filmed, though, and whether we can otherwise deduce from the state of his hair what his look as Ray the photographer in Stay Close will be like? Maybe it was filmed three weeks ago when the UK went through that cold spell – his cozy, chunky cardigan would have been suitable for those conditions. I’m not a massive fan of rustic cardigans on the man (if anything, I prefer the slightly more professorish, thinner cardigans) and this one looks a little bit too grandpa to me. I’m quite partial to a nice chunky troyer, though, or a cable knit.
Can’t wait to see the thing in its entirety…
Do I need to make a shrine?
