“If I had been familiar with some of those movies I think I might have been less keen to join the band. But I think that making “Lord of the Rings” was an act of faith for a lot of people. The minute I got there I knew it was going to be all right. Ian Holm arrived he said, “What’s it like? Is it going to be all right?” And I said, “You won’t want to leave.” And a month later he said, “I don’t want to leave! I want to stay!”

l-o-t-r:

“I did talk to Sean [Bean] but actually only after filming had wrapped. I met him at a party and we had a good chat. But while I didn’t get to meet him on set, I was lucky enough to have access to rushes of his work as Boromir, so I was able to observe his performance and pick up the odd mannerism.”

“I think, in his heart, Frodo’s still in love with the Shire: the woods, the fields… little rivers.”

l-o-t-r:

Trivia: Throughout filming [Brad Dourif] stayed totally in character, and only after Peter Jackson called “cut” for the last time did he drop the accent he adopted for the role. When Jackson heard his real accent, he assumed Dourif was just joking around.

l-o-t-r:

“He’s [Sean Bean] a terrific actor, and a good friend, very good companion, the best possible. We had really good connection, and I think that helped us to develop our roles. We shared a lot and the truth is I miss him a lot. I think that you can feel the connection on the film, we will see it more in, well, I cannot tell you how, but there will be some flask back, some really good stuff in the third part. But his work has ended with us and I miss him. A good friend. I don’t know if he’s going to travel to NZ this year, when we go to do some more shooting in may or June, when we are going to film some more and finish the things well.”

l-o-t-r:

‘The Bag End designs could not be bettered. Their colours are warm with lots of wood and signs of industry, writing and cooking and overeating. Simply, they are hobbity and to me very familiar. They are in accord with my own untidiness and need to be comfy. The kitchen table where Frodo pours the tea is akin to the family kitchen of my childhood. Yet it is all with a difference because Bag End feels like a hole in the ground.’

Ian McKellen
