CELEBRATE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF NORTH & SOUTH WITH US! The weekend of Nov. 14 marks the 10th anniversary of the BBC series North & South, and we are planning a GLOBAL celebration.

Thanks to Tara Jarrett for the terrific “Selfie-While-Watching” idea!

First, The Facebook page for the initiative is here (literally, this page):https://www.facebook.com/groups/489423124530809/
Twitter Account: Twitter: NS10 @NandS10th

Here’s how YOU can get involved: During the weekend of November 14, watch N&S and take a selfie of you watching (shy people, see below).
Then, post your photo on Twitter, your Facebook page, on the NS10 Facebook site (this one).

On your selfie post include your location to demonstrate the global appeal of North & South. Also, remember to add the ‪#‎NS10‬(withnospaces) hashtag so we can compile all of these into one place, either on the special N&S page(link below) or on a blog.

We really hope to get the fans of the other stars involved in this celebration as well! We’d LOVE your help in reaching out to everyone who loves this film!

The Facebook page for the initiative is here (literally, this page):https://www.facebook.com/groups/489423124530809/

And if you, like me, are shy about taking a selfie that includes your face, don’t be concerned. (My selfie is going to be of my TV with my legs stretched out on the coffee table in front of my sofa!)

But we need your help with research We need to get in touch with the FAN groups of these actors from N&S, and need your help in tracking down the groups… 

Can you help? You can probably gather fan group info via the internet. 
Here’s the cast:
Daniela Denby-Ashe - Margaret Hale 
Richard Armitage - John Thornton (we have some contact here  )
Tim Pigott-Smith - Richard Hale 
Sinéad Cusack- Hannah Thornton 
Brendan Coyle - Nicholas Higgins (we’ve made some contact here)
Anna Maxwell Martin - Bessy Higgins 
Lesley Manville - Maria Hale
Jo Joyner - Fanny Thornton 
Pauline Quirke - Dixon 
Brian Protheroe - Mr. Bell 
Rupert Evans - Frederick Hale 
John Light - Henry Lennox 
William Houston -John Boucher

Tracking down as many as possible of these actors’ fan groups is crucial to the event’s success. If you can help, please reply here or to the FB page.

Cheers to you all and we look forward to seeing photos from N&S fans from all over the world!

What a relief!

What a relief!

SUPER tweet. Thank you!

You know that singular feeling of standing on the beach as the waves come in, just enough to cover your feet? As the wave goes back out to sea, it creates a sensation of the earth literally shifting beneath your feet. While it can be disconcerting, depending on the pull of the wave, it’s not unpleasant.

Then there’s another kind of wave entirely. The kind of wave looks normal, but when you step…

Richard Armitage is Vice-Principal, Math Teacher, Football Coach, Dad and Hero in “Into the Storm”

I will begin with a confession: since it was announced that Richard Armitage would star in what I came to call the “Unnamed Into the Black Tornado Storm Sky Project 4, 5, 6(?),” I planned to see it only because it featured RA as its leading man. You see, I am not really a disaster film fan.

But I…

I should begin by saying that since it was announced that Richard Armitage would star in “Unnamed Tornado Project/Category 6/Black Sky/Into the Storm,” I planned to see it only because RA was in it. I am not really a disaster film fan. But I should’ve trusted RA. Because I’ve never been so wrong in all my life.

Accompanied by a gleeful group of Richard Armitage US members,…
