"He’s just brilliant. He’s so inventive and he keeps the atmosphere on set really buoyant … I really enjoyed working with him and I think a lot of the evolution of Thorin is down to the way that he portrayed Bilbo. There wouldn’t be a Thorin without a Bilbo."    — Richard Armitage 

"He’s about the least arrogant person you could wish to meet. He’s very self-deprecating and he’s always up for what you’re going to bring to the scene… What I always think about Richard is that he is essentially a decent person, and I can offer someone no higher praise than that."    
— Martin Freeman
