I Love This Woman!! [In reply to] Can't Post

She is just brilliant! Her energy and way of expressing her love and enthusiasm for LotR and now TH always gets me torqued! The first time I listened to the RotK eedvd commentaries and at the very end she whispered "yea" as she quietly clapped her hands just moved me in a surprising way. She's a fan. She's a geek, She's authentic... and she's unchanged.

I am also so grateful for her touching on how the project moved from GdT to Peter. I've always seen a parallel in how this change brought the film to where it was meant to be in the same way Townsend as Aragorn changed to Viggo. I'm not saying this right... but if Townsend hadn't been hired first, they would never have approached Viggo when and how they did. They called Viggo when Henry (his son) was there and talked him into taking the part. If Henry hadn't been there, I don't think Viggo would have said yes.

Same with Peter and GdT. Peter did NOT want to direct, but GdT's enthusiam and participation helped Jackson, Boyens and (I'm sure) Walsh fall in love with this project in a way they never anticipated. So when GdT had to withdraw, it was easy (or meant to be) for Jackson to step forward and make these films into what they certainly would not have been in the beginning.

Bottom line, I'm so grateful for the Will of Good's influence over they entire series of Tolkien's stories as told by Jackson, Walsh and Boyens. We're so lucky!


I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
