cast: the lord of the rings

“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!”

Orlando Bloom shares his personal on-set photos of the filming of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring to mark the 15th Anniversary of its cinematic release 

OKAY REAL TALK THOUGH

you know the wonderful terrifying thing galadriel does? where she goes dark and awesome and absolutely grim? where she looks like a terrible, terrible force of nature to reckon with, an oncoming storm and crashing waves of light so bright it brings forth darkness?

what if all high elves did that? what if glorfindel became wind and sun incarnate when fighting the balrog? what if feanor in his greatest moments of rage was breathing, walking flame? luthien the stars as she sung sauron to ash?
