Ray Henwood. Can't Post

There was an item in the Dompost yesterday reporting that Ray Henwood is playing the part of "Old Bellringer" (sic).
I can't find it on the newspaper's website but I did find this....http://johnsonlaird.com/Ray_Henwood_ONZM

He'll be the guy who sounds the alarm when they see Smaug approaching Lake-town.

I always get excited reading about casting news, even for very minor characters!

Awesome [In reply to] Can't Post

Good extras and detailed props is the crowning glory in a film.

Pedich Edhellen? Lau? Hria cuilë.

End of line.

Cool [In reply to] Can't Post

It also states that in FotR he was "Erland". Who was Erland? Elrond's dyslexic older brother? Tongue

I would imagine a man of Bree, but I don't recognize him.

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

From the Council of Elrond [In reply to] Can't Post

character name derived from Decipher CCG card
portrayed by Ray Henwood - prominent Wellington based stage and screen actor
not mentioned in credits but Henwood signs autographs for that character and lists it in various bios

Thanks for the info [In reply to] Can't Post

So, he's playing two men of Laketown. Wonder if "Old Bellringer" might be Erland's father? Tongue

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

Lol captain Salt! [In reply to] Can't Post


"But the other two Istari were sent for a different purpose. Morinethar's and Rómestámo's task was to circumvent Sauron, to bring help to the few tribes of Men that had rebelled from Melkor-worship, to stir up rebellion and after his first fall to search out his hiding and to cause dissension and disarray among the dark East. They must have had very great influence on the history of the Second age and Third age in weakening and disarraying the forces of East who would both in the Second age and Third age otherwise have outnumbered the West."
