Richard Armitage Interview. Can't Post

He did this telephone interview from NY at the height of Hurricane Sandy,

http://www.stuff.co.nz/...ge-the-warrior-dwarf

Most curious remark:

"As the different costumes emerge they represent a different part of Thorin. I kind of move slightly differently in each costume and towards the end of the third film the character's physical shape drastically changes from the beginning."

In what way, I wonder?

Armor [In reply to] Can't Post

Isn't Thorin supposed to wear a magnificent-and-awesome-dwarven-mithril-king armor in the BOFA ?

Yes, perhaps that what he means, Findun. [In reply to] Can't Post

RA said quite early on that it was the armour to end all armours. I wonder if it's the same as that portrayed in the Weta Hobbit Chronicles or if they've changed the design?

Corrupt by a dwarven Ring, maybe? Finger crossed. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd really like to hear more about the elven and dwarven Rings... they said far too little about them in LOTR. I hope they fix this.
If, as it is rumored, Sauron is the main villan, and not Smaug, in the Hobbit, I hope they tell us more about the Seven and the Three.

Here you are, Xanaseb. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm just making assumptions here because we haven't seen this armour yet. The small picture shows Thorin working barechested in his forge but, as far as I can make out, PJ rejected this and put him in a shirt (see facing page) presumably because of the difficulty of upper body prosthetics. Who knows whether this armour has been rejected or not?

Change of appearance [In reply to] Can't Post

Perhaps his beard grows? And we finally get to see proper Thorin before he gets the chop!

Or have we seen that armour before? [In reply to] Can't Post

When he's a young Thorin before the Gate (of Moria or Erebor)?

LOL! I was thinking that too. [In reply to] Can't Post

A sudden growth spurt could give us that braided beard, perhaps, which would be appropriate once he was King under the Mountain. (It looks quite kingly to me, anyway.)

BUT, I do like him as he is.

Maybe he'll look wilder, somehow [In reply to] Can't Post

In the beginning, Thorin looks like a heroic leader. But maybe he gets all wild-looking in the third movie. That would be my guess.

Wouldn't it be the other way around? [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin is in exile before the Quest, so he should look wilder in AUJ?

cheers :) My hunch is that armour is too timid for such a big character. They'll do something even more flashy than that, mark my words // [In reply to] Can't Post

That's very possible - specially since he's got his "old" axe, rather than Orcrist!

I'm thinking before he gets his fancy armor [In reply to] Can't Post

He might not be too polished-looking in AUJ, but he'll be in control of himself. But I'm thinking that during TABA, he'll be going haywire for a while--that's what I'm talking about when I say "wild". Then at the end he'll get better, put on the armor, and look kingly and noble.

I see what you mean [In reply to] Can't Post

He starts off respectable in AUJ, and then becomes progressively "wild" (various attacks, captures, and knocks, bruises and cuts); and then becomes royal in the TABA.

Thank you for clarifying that.Smile
