“Liv Tyler, when I first arrived on set I thought, “That’s Liv Tyler, she’s pretty famous.” I’m the sort of person that doesn’t move forward to people and be like, “Hey, I’m your new best friend!” I’m not like that, give them their space, they’re famous, they must be sick of people who want to get close to them all the time. But she came straight over to me, which is sort of quite un-actress type behavior and she gave me a huge hug and said, “I’m so glad you’re here! There’s another woman here now! It’s all been men! We can do things together! We can paint nails!”

Miranda Otto on meeting Liv Tyler for the first time

And Elrond Half-Elven looked into the eyes of his daughter Arwen and said, ‘NO WAY, you CANNOT marry that human. Humans are gross.’

And to that Arwen replied, ‘But father, did not your brother Elros choose to live as a human and founded Númenor, the great nation of men from which Aragorn is descended?’

Elrond then said, ‘Shut up.’

Young she was and yet not so. The braids of her dark hair was touched by no frost; her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night; yet queenly she looked, and thought and knowledge were in her glance, as of one who has known many things that the years bring.
