15 Facts You Didn’t Know About The Lord of the Rings:
15. PETER JACKSON AND HIS KIDS HAD CAMEOS - In The Fellowship of the Ring, you can catch Jackson in the town of Bree, as he strolls past the camera munching on a carrot. In this first cameo, his character even has a name: Albert Dreary. In The Two Towers, he is part of the epic Battle of Helm’s Deep, where we see him as a soldier of Rohan throwing a spear at the Uruk-hai. Finally, in The Return of the King, Jackson is a Corsair of Umbar, seen walking across deck.
14. OTHER CAST MEMBERS’ CHILDREN WERE USED ALSO USED AS EXTRAS - Throughout the trilogy, various crew members and cast members’ family were used as extras or for bit parts. Supervisors, writers, and employees of physical effects company (Weta Workshops), appear as soldiers, dwarves, elves and men throughout, and you can even spot the great-grandson of J R R Tolkien himself as a ranger at Osgiliath.
13. THE FELLOWSHIP ACTORS GOT MATCHING TATTOOS - Mortensen’s real tattoo can be seen amongst the numerous fake tattoos the actor wore as a Russian gangster in Eastern Promises.
12. SIR CHRISTOPHER LEE READ THE BOOKS EVERY YEAR - sir Christopher Lee, who played the white wizard Saruman, was a huge fan of the books. He initially read the trilogy when they were first published in the mid-50s, and since then has re-read them every year. Every. Single. Year.
11. SEAN BEAN REFUSED TO FLY TO REMOTE SETS - Bean would get up hours earlier to make his way there on foot. He took ski-lifts partway up the mountain, before hiking the rest of the way to the set by himself.
10. SIR IAN MCKELLEN TOOK SOME “SOUVENIRS” FROM THE SETS OF LORD OF THE RINGS (AND THE HOBBIT) - Sir Ian McKellan (Gandalf) has admitted in several interviews and an AMA that he may have pilfered an item or two during filming as a souvenir. (Wouldn’t you?) He proudly displays Gandalf’s staff at his pub “The Grapes,” as well as keeping the wizard’s trademark pointy hat and the sword Glamdring.
9. NEW ZEALAND EMBRACED THE FILM WITH NAME CHANGES AND COMMEMORATIVE STAMPS - In December 2001, ahead of the release of The Fellowship of the Rings, New Zealand postal service released a set of six commemorative stamps featuring Gandalf, Galadriel, Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Boromir and Saruman.
8. MANY OF THE STARS WERE INJURED DURING FILMING - Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) however, managed to rack up more than one injury!
While filming a scene where he kicks an Orc helmet, he broke two toes (and didn’t say anything about it until after the shot was done), and in another scene he knocked out a tooth, but asked for it to be superglued back in place so he could finish the scene.
7. THE SOUND CREW GOT CREATIVE - In The Fellowship of the Ring, the members of the fellowship head to Moria, only to encounter the horrifying Kraken-esque Watcher in the Water. While they escape the monster, we hear it’s terrifying groans… which are actually the sounds of a walrus!
6. ONLY TWO FELLOWSHIP MEMBERS DIDN’T WEAR PROSTHETICS - Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) and Sean Bean (Boromir) didn’t have any latex additions for their characters. (Because they were playing human characters to begin with!) Lucky for them…
5. CATE BLANCHETT BRONZED HER ELF EARS, BUT LIV TYLER’S MELTED - Liv Tyler, on the other hand, wasn’t quite so careful with hers. She reportedly intended to keep them after filming, but left them on the dashboard of her car. The little gelatin caps aren’t made to stand that kind of heat, and within a few days they had melted.
4. AN OLYMPIC FENCER WAS HIRED TO TEACH SWORDPLAY, BUT NOT EVERYBODY NEEDED HIM - Amazingly, Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) barely needed coaching, and was the only actor to appear in fight scenes without weeks of training. Anderson later said that Mortensen was the best swordsman he ever trained, which is incredibly high praise coming from someone of his caliber.
3. MORTENSEN WAS GOOD AT MUCH MORE THAN JUST SWORDPLAY… - He learned to speak Elvish for the films, making it his sixth language- he also speaks English, Danish, French, Italian and Spanish (he also has a smattering of Norwegian and Swedish, and recently learned some Arabic, just in case you weren’t feeling inadequate enough).
2. …BUT HE VERY NEARLY WASN’T CAST - Originally, the role of Aragorn was going to be played by Stuart Townsend (Queen of the Damned, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). However, just days before filming started, Townsend was cut from the cast. While noone involved ever went into much detail about the change, the official reason was “director-actor creative chemistry” issues between Townsend and Peter Jackson.
1. THE TRILOGY BROKE OSCAR RECORDS - Each film in the trilogy scooped multiple Academy Awards, and the trilogy as a whole still holds several award records. The installment with the fewest Oscar wins was The Two Towers which (fittingly) won two statuettes, The Fellowship of the Ring scooped four, but it was The Return of the King that did best with a whopping eleven Oscars.
Aragorn's best quotes:
Aragorn: Are you frightened?
Aragorn: Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you.
Frodo: What do you want?
Aragorn: A little more caution from you; that is no trinket you carry.
Frodo: I carry nothing.
Aragorn: Indeed. I can avoid being seen if I wish, but to disappear entirely, that is a rare gift.
Pippin: Is he going to die?
Aragorn: He is passing into the Shadow World. He'll soon become a wraith like them.
Aragorn: For Frodo!
