In winter here no heart could mourn for summer or for spring. No blemish or sickness or deformity could be seen in anything that grew upon the earth. On the land of Lórien, there was no stain.

A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting - part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie. When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this! PETER JACKSON.


“Viggo’s favourite thing to do was to spring on me the night before, that he’d had a long talk with Fran and Peter, and he really wanted the whole scene to be in Elvish. And I love to speak Elvish but I was just like, ‘Argh.’ I wanted to kill him. Because it always seemed that I had more Elvish to speak when we were doing the scenes than he did. I’m glad he did push that because it’s so great to hear, and it really adds a beautiful quality and depth to their relationship, and to the film in general.”

I had to keep saving Sean Bean on that shot there. I had to keep running up behind him and grabbing him. And he’d just fall back onto me. I had such a bruised backside and legs after that. ‘Cause he just kept like falling back on me. And I was like a nice soft pillow for him to land on as I grabbed him and pulled him back. I gave him a few beatings for that I can tell you.
