Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala, the star-crossed lovers of George Lucas’ third movie in Star Wars prequel trilogy.

I’m truly happy that these characters are finally being accepted by the fandom and their important contribution to the rich history of the franchise.

“Thorin is a wonderful character and I think people will understand just how brilliant Richard Armitage is in the role when they see his performance in The Battle of the Five Armies. In the final part of the trilogy, Richard has to take Thorin to the brink of utter madness and then bring him back from that point to a heroic place again.

Across the three films, Richard runs the full gamut from being utterly despicable to being somebody for whom you feel such affection that you will be prepared to shed tears for him. He plays the part very truthfully – he doesn’t play madness like a hammy Shakespearean actor doing Richard III, and, as a result, it is a triumph of acting.

Richard keeps Thorin’s temporary insanity internalized, which is ultimately scarier than more extroverted demonstrations of madness. The nutcases that rant and rave are never as terrifying as the silent, brooding, quietly stewing guys, the ones in whom the emotional pressure is eroding them away from within.

This final movie has a lot more tension than the previous films: almost from the beginning until virtually the very end, everything for Thorin – and for all the characters – is very much poised on a knife edge which, for a filmmaker, is an immensely satisfying mood to be creating.”

Thranduil was a favourite make-up and hair subject for Peter: ‘Lee Pace is a lovely, affable, gentle man but we turned him into this scary-looking character with pale skin, penetrating eyes, silver-blond hair and amazing eyebrows. He looks stunning and it is perfect for his character because Thranduil is intimidating and takes no nonsense and, let me tell you, when Lee comes on set in character, people just clear out of the way!’

Amy Adams: Lois Lane

Amy Adams plays intrepid reporter Lois Lane. Adams, an Academy Award nominee and lifelong Superman fan, relished tackling the new role of Lois Lane. In Man of Steel, Lois Lane is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist with the Daily Planet who is resolute in her pursuit of the truth, but also compassionate and fair.

Amy Adams brings a new dimension to Lois Lane, the tough yet principled journalist, who in her own way is just as courageous as Superman.
