From Sir Ian's blog - EXCERPT: >In fact, I was in an old paint factory, which I knew ten years back as the main film studio for The Lord of the Rings. Inside was the new set for Bag End, including a bedroom and pantry.
And I was there too, in Hobbiton, with a semi-circle of dwarves and Bilbo, their reluctant host. I was at the cast’s first joint rehearsal where Peter Jackson, with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, invited our comments on their script so far. This is as close to bliss as an actor can get. Facing three Oscar-winning screenplay writers who genuinely want us actors to contribute. AND there were piles of snacks on the coffee tables: fresh fruit, NZ cheese, Minties.
Two of the cast have forsworn deserts during Lent. Not me, not yet.<
Laura, notice as RA walks away at very end of his presentation at 2010's BAFTAs. Could that foot be placed any straighter? Admittedly not the best example..hunt will continue for a better one;)
