The only time this separation doesn’t work for me is when the actor is associated with something particularly unsavoury, like Kevin Spacey or Mel Gibson or Woody Allen. Then I sometimes have problems getting past my distaste, no matter how great their art. So far, fortunately, that hasn't happened with any of the LotR/Hobbit actors.

Interesting. I'm a big proponent of seperating the art from the artist. Even though I'm Jewish, from Israel, I love Mel Gibson's directorial work (I'll be first in line for his Wild Bunch remake), not unlike how I love Wagner's work. The artistry there is just too much to overlook.

I'm always happy when members of the cast and crew of these films meet success and especially are granted accolades - it'll benefit the legacy of these films.

For instance, I was glad to learn that Billy Connoly (Dain) has recently been knighted; or that Howard Shore was made Commander of the Order of Canada.
