“It has to be Eowyn and Miranda Otto’s commitment to her. When I saw that they were paying attention to her warrior side in the third movie I was really pleased. Because the people of Rohan have had to count on women to defend their country for a long time, and I thought it was important to see that. And Miranda has done a great job. She’s been amazing, and I think people will be impressed by that.”

“Working with Pete was a daily delight, really. Pete’s enthusiasm was infectious, and if your head dropped, you couldn’t let it drop too far because his didn’t. Someone would say, “You mean he’s not tired?” I mean, come on, this guy was going to bed with the rushes every night.“

“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!”

Ian McKellen talks about early jitters filming LOTR Trilogy

“I remember once when myself, Viggo, Orlando [Bloom], Bernard [Hill], Miranda [Otto], producer Barrie Osbourne and some make-up people decide not to do the hour and a half journey back to the hotel because we had a dawn shoot the next morning. We stayed on location and slept in our camper vans. Viggo caught some fish and, being the consummate outdoorsman, dug a fire pit and grilled them up. We sat around laughing and drinking and listening to music, and Barry Osbourne’s there and telling us old Hollywood tales. It was a really amazing night and one of the memories I cherish the most.”

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.
