Hmm [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure..but apparently the character was once called Beregond (they changed this because they felt it wasn't worth giving him that name, given how small his role had to be in the end), so I assume that they would have shot a few other scenes with the character, though I doubt he was ever intended to be a particularly notable presence.

Maybe he disapproved of Denethor's madness and went to join the battle below? Or possibly he tried to find Gandalf in order to warn him but ultimately got lost/couldn't find him/was killed, which meant that Pippin warned Gandalf when he found him later on.

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

He didnīt seem particularly brave or "pro-Gandalf" to me, but that could be a possibility, I guess. Is there no official answer?

I don't think it's ever been addressed 'officially' [In reply to] Can't Post

I did a lot of research on the character and I never came across any information about his fate.

It wouldn't be good movie-making to fuss about such a minor character.

Here's a past thread where it got discussed:

Irolas or Iorlas? [In reply to] Can't Post

Iorlas of Gondor was the uncle of Bergil (in the book). Is this the same character?

Nope I don't think it's the same person [In reply to] Can't Post

Why they chose 'Irolas' instead of the canonical name you mentioned is beyond me, but they used a transposition of the word as that is the name officially credited on IMDb.

They seem to like doing this: for example Madril is a transposition of Mardil the first steward.

The guy is essentially the closest character to Beregond in the film and was originally intended to be Beregond.

Thanks... [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, the character isn't really significant in terms of the films.

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

Seems like nobody has a clue. I was just wondering, seeing that Grimbold was supposed to have died during the Pelennor battle, that somebody, perhaps the actor himself or PJ, might have said something during a Q&A.

Which one was Irolas again? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm either getting confused with someone else, or I somehow missed him. Or just simply forgot who he was. Blush
