THE HOBBIT featured in a couple French magazines:
See photos and entire translation graciously provided at the RA Net website(see below link):
Excerpt: "When he was a young dwarf prince, Thorin witnessed the destruction of the realm of Erebor. Forced to exile, he became a strong fighter and a charismatic leader, whose only desire is to destroy the creature responsible for his people's misfortune. “Thorin feels a surpressed anger and I take advantage of this role to express my own dark side”, adds Richard Armitage. “It’s liberating! I pushed limits of my performance outside my “comfort zone”. I do not want to rest on my laurels”."http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/career/214.html#21nov

See following link for surnames found in George Washington's family tree. Seems RA shares at least one with the first President of the U.S. - Crispin... http://famouskin.com/gw1x2.aspx
EXCERPT from the AncestryUK website(see below link) regarding President Geo Washington:
"EARLY ANCESTORS OF THE "WASHINGTONS"
The first ancestor of George Washington, First President of the United States, to live at Washington , Durham, England was William, originally known as William fitz Patric. The Washington Family had extensive estates in both North East and North West England, with family properties in Berwickshire (Scotland), Northumberland, Durham and Westmoreland (Cumbria) in England before William settled at WESSYNGTON - now known as WASHINGTON."
From above website: The Lindisfarne Gospels illuminated on Durham Cathedral, UK...
Apparently Geo Washington was interested in genealogy, which is not a surprise to anyone who is a history buff as well. The two, IMO, go hand-in-hand. In Washington's personal circumstances, however, he found it wise to not publicly express his interest in family history - lest his political opponents might be tempted to claim it was proof Pres Washington wanted to establish a monarchy instead of his true preference - an American Democratic Republic. http://www.revolutionarywararchives.org/fromkingjohn.html
Here's another one of bccmee's clever projects. It demonstrates the primary reason I've said she's one of those who keeps the RA eternal flame burning brightly. Her contributions are welcome indeed during these days of almost total darkness in new fan material...http://fanvideos.net46.net/gallery/spherical_gallery.html
