Robin ready to hang up tights  
 
 

The Irish born star told Metro he's considering a move from the woods of Sherwood Forrest over to the dizzy lights of Hollywood.

Robin Hood star Jonas Armstrong says he's ready to hang up his merry tights and is all set to quit his role as Robin Hood when filming of a third BBC One series finishes next year. 

He told Metro at the glitzy Golden Compass party: 'It's been great but I really don't want to be typecast. I think one more series next year and I'll be ready to move on and do something different.'

Asked whether he would consider doing a fantasy blockbuster like the Golden Compass, he said: 'Yeah for sure. I thought it was great. Who knows what will happen at this stage we'll wait and see what happens. I've made no plans.'

 The 26-year-old was plucked from obscurity back in 2006 before taking BBC One audiences by storm.

He and his merry men pulled in 8.5 million viewers on debut as they robbed from the rich and gave to the poor.

His decision now leads the door wide open for the corporation to find another star to fire the bow and arrow.

Armstrong was one of a cluster of stars who attended the premiere of the adaptation of Philip Pullman's 1995 fantasy novel in London's Leicester Square.

Others included Hugh Grant, Joan Collins and Melinda Messenger before the party moved over to a lavish party at London's Tobacco Dock in the East End.
