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.
“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.
