Oh yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sean Bean's Boromir was one of the great discoveries of FOTR for me. Even though Tolkien said he was a noble man, I could never shake my suspicion and dislike of him in the book, and tended not to be sorry at his death. But the movies gave me a character I could like, that actually seemed in an odd way to succeed in showing me Tolkien's intended character better than Tolkien did. One of the only ways in which I would say the movies improved on the book, because in fleshing out the character they (and Sean Bean's terrific performance) got him just right.

I think my favorite "invented" scene is Boromir teaching Merry and Pippin to fight. I just love that. Smile
