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.”

Viggo Mortensen on Sean Bean

l-o-t-r:

“I can’t remember all the details, but ideas and emotions. It felt like immortality, like no matter what happens with the rest of my life, this moment has validated something that I’ve felt my whole life I needed to accomplish or be part of. When Spielberg came and talked to us, oh my God! He said, “You guys have done what America has wanted for years — fantasy has been recognized in this critical way.”

Sean Astin (Oscar Night)

l-o-t-r:

“David has a nice family resemblance to Sean Bean.”

l-o-t-r:

“The man is pure gold. I love him to death. He’s just a thoroughly good man and a marvelous actor.”

l-o-t-r:

“For the first time, Legolas witnesses death, or what death does to the beings around him. He doesn’t understand that. It’s not part of his comprehension. He’s an elf; elves don’t die, they’re immortal, and so I wanted to try and portray in that moment this utter confusion and bewilderment at Gandalf not being with us, and where could he have gone? This is what death means.”

Orlando Bloom

l-o-t-r:

They remember shooting the very first scene in 1999, which found the four hobbits tumbling down a hill. “We were excited, and there was that kind of buzz in the air, like ‘F—, it actually all starts now,”’ says Elijah Wood (Frodo). To which Dominic Monaghan (Merry) adds: “We were all in costume and running around the set, and Pete [Jackson] came up and was like, ‘Okay, all right, here we go!’ And he had a clapperboard that said, like, Slate one, take one.”

l-o-t-r:

“From the moment that I saw him onscreen, I thought, ‘Shit, he looks incredible. Here’s a character I don’t have to pretend to be in love with.’”

l-o-t-r:

“Acting is a sort of pressure cooker that allows the fizz to come out the top. God knows what I’d be like if I didn’t have that.”

l-o-t-r:

“Most of my stuff was with Hugo Weaving, who is in the production of Uncle Vanya, who’s a god amongst men. And with Ian McKellen, who is, oh look, if only he were straight.”

Cate Blanchett on Ian McKellen & Hugo Weaving
