People that remind me of Richard Armitage #1

Please tell me I’m not the only one who keep seeing people that remind me of Richard Armitage? Surely you keep seeing people that remind you of him as well?

Anyway, here’s the one that gets me every time we watch Grimm: Sasha Roiz.

Not a striking resemblance perhaps, but he’s dark-haired, tall, has a nice voice, the right kind of nose, and his expressions are just very … Richard Armitage. He even has those pointy elvish ears!

Perhaps you need to see the man in action to see what I mean, but let’s try a few pictures instead:

Could be Lucas, but isn’t.

Heinz Kruger?

Broody crinkles.

They should at least be able to pull off playing brothers fairly well. That would be pretty sweet. I’m sure there are plenty of clips of the man, seeing as how he’s the police captain or something in Grimm.

Then again, I also can’t watch Grimm without constantly thinking how Nick reminds me of a younger Ken Olin. Now I just need someone to remind me of Sam Neill, and Bob, as they say, would be your uncle. 😀

A Swedish introvert residing in Robin Hood Country (Nottingham, UK) with a husband and two cats. She's an eager participant in tabletop and play-by-post roleplaying, woodworking, photography and European travel, when there's not a plague on. Might get a novel out one of these days, if she doesn't get too distracted along the way.

  1. Good call! I didn’t agree at first , but by the last photo I was definitely with you! The one with the hat reminds me of Monet sans beard. I haven’t watched this show yet.

    1. In “Grimm”, the Grimm Brothers didn’t just write down fairytales, they were supernatural investigators, of sorts, and there are a lot of fae/fey creatures out there. Their descendants are known as “Grimms” and they sort of police the fae creatures in our world. It’s quite an interesting show. 🙂

      It’s strange, because seeing pictures of Sasha Roiz, he’s not particularly RA-looking, but every time I see him on TV, my brain keeps shouing “Richard! Richard! Richard!” at me.

  2. So thankyou for pinning this down for me! I’ve been re-watching Robin Hood and I couldn’t for the life of me think who Richard Armitage was reminding me of! You’re right in that they don’t look too alike, but the way they both talk and their mannerisms are so alike! Cheers! It was bugging me something crazy!
