I think it's harder for actors already familiar with the source material

I'm trying to imagine how difficult it is for Richard Armitage, who has to contend with his own, vivid image of what's in the book and what is in the script that is given to him. Personally, It doesn't really matter to me what any of the actors think of the source material-positive or negative or if they haven't even read it-so long as they do a good job. And so far, the acting is the one thing I have zero complaints about in these films. (LOTR included)

Btw, it is my understanding that Sir Ian became quite a fan of the book and even made small suggestions that the script writers had forgotten about. ( ah, somebody beat me to this!)

My Sam Gamgee is indeed a reflexion of the English soldier, of the privates and batmen I knew in the 1914 war, and recognized as so far superior to myself- J.R.R. Tolkien
