Sir Ian had to act to these stands with the actors’ faces pasted on them. It’s hilarious. xD But at the same time, my heart also goes out to Sir Ian.

now this is neat

Now this is a professional.

"In order to shoot the dwarves and a large Gandalf, we couldn’t be in the same set. All I had for company was 13 photographs of the dwarves on top of stands with little lights – whoever’s talking flashes up. Pretending you’re with 13 other people when you’re on your own, it stretches your technical ability to the absolute limits. I cried, actually. I cried. Then I said out loud, ‘This is not why I became an actor’. Unfortunately the microphone was on and the whole studio heard.”

– Sir Ian McKellen (x)

Sir Ian mi perdonerà ma sto ridendo molto

Incredibly useful height chart from Weta. I just posted a fic where I reference the Nimoy song that has Bilbo at three foot, but luckily in the movie verse he’s considerably taller than that. Also interesting how they take the actors’ actual heights into consideration. Lots of them are 5”7’!


And I hate to say RA is wrong, but as I always stated, Weta height charts says Thorin is 4’ 10,5”, not 5’ 2” … :P

Chi non ha bisogno di uno schema con le stature dei personaggi dell’Hobbit?

Went to see Ian McKellen On Stage (fundraiser for Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch) tonight at the Theatre Royal in Nelson. It was amazing. Can’t describe how incredible it is to see someone like that reciting Wordsworth and Shakespeare monologues from 2 metres away (I may have been in the front row).

The first part of the evening to make me giggle however, was not Sir Ian, it was one of the quotes in the programme, which I’m copying here in case it also makes someone else giggle.

Some would call it ‘selfless’.

Others may say ‘committed’.

Others yet would point to the truly admirable way a Knight of the theatre takes a pause from filming two of the biggest films in production, reprising a legendary role, using his vast experience and talent to entertain thousands of punters and help raise funds for a grand old theatre in Christchurch.

I, however, would call it ‘skiving’. So if you would be so kind, send Ian back to his day job ASAP; there’s only so long we can cover for him. Mr Jackson still thinks he’s still on a ‘pee break’.
