Another quote from latest edition of EW:
THORIN OAKENSHIELD PLAYED BY RICHARD ARMITAGE

For years, fans have been poring over and picking apart every nugget of news on the project, driving the expectations surrounding the film ever higher. "It's nice to be cut off from that--otherwise you become self-conscious," Armitage says. "I envy that original cast of Lord of the Rings. They didn't know what they were involved in."
Second quote starts a feature in the article titled "Get To Know The Dwarves."
First photo and quote is from Thorin Oakenshield-Richard Armitage
"The dwarves leader is fiercely driven to restore the proud legacy of his race," Armitage says. "He has this vision of what he's going to do for his people."
