His film appearances include starring roles in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, as Thorin Oakenshield; Into the Storm, as tornado-beleaguered Gary Fuller; and the upcoming films Urban and the Shed Crew*, Sleepwalker* and Pilgrimage* . Most recently, he completed filming Brain on Fire*, based on Susannah Cahalan’s best-selling memoir.  (*Release TBA).

He was nominated for a Best Actor Olivier Award for his portrayal of John Proctor in Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible, directed by Yael Farber at The Old Vic/London in-the-round.

Most recently, Armitage completed his critically acclaimed performance as Francis Dolarhyde, aka The Red Dragon – based on Thomas Harris’ iconic 1981 novel – on Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, which aired internationally.
