32 Adorable Behind-the-Scenes Photos from the Set of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy
You’ll forgive me for going a bit Tolkein mad, won’t you? It’s been a decade since the last film came out. A DECADE. I’ve been waiting a decade to swim this deep in my Middle-earth dorkitude. So come on, splash around with me until your fingers get all pruney. Here are some older than dirt photos from behind-the-scenes of Lord Of The Rings. If you’ve listened to any of the commentary on the DVDs, you know this cast was quite loving and close. (Except, perhaps, for John Rhys-Davies who had an allergic reaction to his make-up and spent much of his down time recuperating.) As for proof of love between the rest, you need look no further than their matching tattoos (Davies’ stunt double went in his place). So strap on your mithril, pour yourself a flagon from the Green Dragon (yes, they come in pints) and get to work on your Éomer/Gandalf slash fiction. They don’t call them horse people for nothing, you know.
