*HAPPY BIRTHDAY* Viggo Mortensen (10/20/1958)

“After a long day’s shooting, when all the other cast would be either in bed or in the bar, a nine-page handwritten memo would come rattling through the fax from Viggo, outlining his thoughts about that day’s work and the next few days to come. This wasn’t an exception – over 15 months, it became the rule. In the small hours, it was actually comforting to know that there was somebody else out there grappling with the same nightmare that we were.”

Peter Jackson on working w/ Viggo Mortensen
