Actors' quotes
OK, here's some quotes from the actors of the movie, can anyone guess who said:

"These things are like boats with toes on them!" (on the fake hobbit feet used in LOTR)

" - doesn't speak a lot - - prefers to let his actions speak for -. -'s moves are smooth and elegant, like a cat. You know how cats can jump and land steadily on their paws? That's what I'm trying to do. There's a strength in that, but it's very balletic. It's also bloody hard to do without falling over!" (on his/her charcter's movements)

" To play one of the main characters in it, it's not the kind of thing you don't do. Oh, I'd rather not play - in Lord of the Rings..., In fact, what else would you rather do, you know? I can't actually think of another job that I'd rather do."

1. I have no idea. Ian Holm, aka Bilbo. He didn't particularly care for the feet.

2. This is Orlando. And I know it is Orlando because he said this or something very similar in the Official Movie Guide. (Umm. Yeah, I have it memorized, almost...)

3. No clue. But I am guessing it was one of the guys who played hobbits: Elijah, Dominic, Billy or Sean.

I have some, but I will wait for these to be cleared up before I post.

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-05-2002 11:56 AM

Oh oh! I remember seeing or hearing that somewhere. Forget who said it think it was Ian Holm.

vanwalossien 08-07-2002 04:41 AM

Merlilot's right. 1=Ian 2=Orli 3=Billy

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-07-2002 09:00 AM

There were 2 more quotes?! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] Man, I must be stupid!! I thought they were your signature! And I knew them both too! Oh well, Merlilot got them first anyway so it doesn't matter.

vanwalossien 08-09-2002 07:44 AM

Well, this isn't really a qoute, it's Peter Jackson's decription of one of the actors.. Who is PJ talking about?

"He's the only actor I've ever met who has had his tooth knocked out by a sword while shooting a scene, and afterwards ask us if we can put it back with superglue, so he can finish the scene!"

Melephelwen 08-09-2002 12:12 PM

Viggo Mortensen aka Aragorn [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]


"I was told I had to gain a lot of weight because Hobbits are very portly. Peter is forever suggesting I have more food. 'A little more shepherd's pie for Mr. X.' "
Sorry, I couldn't wait with this one [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] *in a very very sweet and innocent voice* you're not mad, are you??

Was that said by Samwise's favorite little hobbit himself? (I'm talking about Samwise who made this topic [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]) But anyway, was that said by Sean A.?

vanwalossien 08-10-2002 06:13 AM

yes.. Sean Astin said that..

Samwise 08-12-2002 08:34 PM

Yeah, the poor guy! I always wondered why they didn't try to fatten Li'l Mr. Wood up! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Judging from more recent pictures of 'Lil Mr. Wood, I think they did. His face was meatier as Frodo, even though he was basically slender. But he looks even thinner now. Bony-faced.

Samwise 08-12-2002 09:27 PM

Hm. Maybe a tad....
Anywho, I'm off topic, I apologize. Someone post a quote! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

vanwalossien 08-13-2002 01:22 AM


"I don't care much about the money at all. Frankly, if I get the chance to kiss someone in a movie, they wouldn't need to pay me at all."
On his salary in movies...

Samwise 08-13-2002 01:05 PM

Dominic Monohan (sp)? Or maybe Billy Boyd?
Or, when he was much younger, Sean Astin?

"Swans!" said Sam. "And mighty big ones, too! "

Joy 08-13-2002 10:13 PM

That last one was Orlando Bloom. I remember this from one of his fan pages.

Sorry, I don't have a quote though.

Samwise 08-13-2002 10:18 PM

Hi, Joy! Long time no talk! I don't know too many quotes, either, but here's one that I have:

"I don't know about you, but--if you can get a hold of some of these things--books, lima beans--whatever--I recommend 'em. "

vanwalossien 08-14-2002 04:02 AM

I have no idea, Billy?

Samwise 08-14-2002 03:51 PM

Nope. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Melephelwen 08-15-2002 07:27 AM

I have no idea for the quote, Dominique Monaghan?
Anyway, I wanted to ask, Samwise, on the picture in your last post I can see parts of those bubbles, you use to tell speach in f.ex. cartoons. Where did you find the pic, and what are Frodo and Sam saying? Just curious... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

daughterofgaladriel 08-15-2002 02:16 PM

let's see....ok I know this is pathetically easy, but it's all I can think of right now:

...may it be a light to you when all other lights go out....

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-15-2002 02:39 PM

Galadriel when she gave 'the Light of Earendil' to Frodo in Lothlorien.

Welcome to the Downs, by the way! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Samwise 08-15-2002 03:32 PM


Where did you find the pic, and what are Frodo and Sam saying? Just curious...
Oi...the link to that pic was originally posted by Raefindel in the Funny Pictures thread . I thought the joke was in kinda bad taste myself, but that the looks on "Sam and Frodo's" faces were priceless, not to mention unusual, so I copied the pic and doctored it a tad.

"They're Elves," said Sam. "Can't you hear their voices? "

daughterofgaladriel 08-15-2002 05:03 PM

I've already been to the Downs for I while, now here's another qoute:

what have I got in my pocket?

Samwise 08-15-2002 05:08 PM

I don't know about you, but--if you can get a hold of some of these things--books, lima beans--whatever--I recommend 'em. "

Okay, here's a hint: The speaker of this quote has an exteeeemmmeeeeely cute adorable girl munchkin.

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-15-2002 06:14 PM

Daughter of Galadriel, that'd be Bilbo, and Samwise, I know yours! It's Sean Astin of course!! Yeah he does have a cute little munchkin, doesn't he!

Samwise 08-15-2002 06:19 PM

LOL--I knew that'd be too big of a hint. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

"Yes, they are Elves," said Legolas, "and they say that you breathe so loudly that they could shoot you in the dark."
Sam hastily put his hand over his mouth.

Samwise 08-27-2002 11:36 PM

Hm. It's been over a week. I'd like to post another quote just to put this back up to the top.

"The 'Hollywood touch' would be quite wrong for this picture. Tolkien was writing about a different world, a different land, a primitive land and a primitive time in history. New Zealand--breathtakingly beautiful--is just perfect for that."
Who said it?

vanwalossien 08-28-2002 11:24 AM

Isn't that from the DVD? I think Elijah said it, but I'm not sure..

Samwise 08-28-2002 11:33 AM

(Wishing she had a DVD player) Nope, and nope. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-28-2002 04:50 PM

Peter Jackson? Um...Viggo Mortensen?? Sorry, btw. I didn't realize that it was my turn!

Samwise 08-28-2002 10:20 PM

*That's okay, Lothriel. It's easy to get caught up in other stuff.

Nope, and nope...and I'll tell you right now, it's NOT Sean Astin! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Ringwraith Number Two 08-29-2002 05:14 AM

Hmm...could it be Ian McKellen?

Melephelwen 08-29-2002 07:52 AM

Cate Blanchett??

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-29-2002 08:30 AM

Sean Astin was going to be my next guess! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Ok, well I'll pick my favorite hobbit man then! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Was it Billy???

Samwise 08-29-2002 11:53 AM

Oh, dear....nope, nope, and nope. I guess, (given his character, maybe?) one might not expect a comment like that out of him? [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-29-2002 01:36 PM

Was it Christopher Lee? Sean Bean? Oh I know! That guy in the metal armor, oh Sauron! Yeah that's the guy. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

Samwise 08-29-2002 01:56 PM

Nope. You folks are running out of actors.

Lothiriel Silmarien 08-29-2002 05:17 PM

The guy who played Ugluk. Or that cute little ferret on some guys shoulder at Bree [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] Ok, last guess. Was it Dom Monaghan?

Ringwraith Number Two 08-30-2002 04:30 AM

Our favourite little Took, Billy Boyd?

vanwalossien 08-30-2002 10:33 AM

Well, Samwise, you're right, we're running out of actors.. I don't think anyone has suggested Orlando, so I do...
