The Mysterious Absence of Celeborn Can't Post

I wonder why he is missing. Is it to avoid having too many characters in the film? Is it so that Gandalf and Galadriel can share their tender moment? Is it because somebody had to stay behind to rule Lorien? Or is it because the actor, Marton Csokas, didn't want to reprise the role? (I believe he was among those who filed the lawsuit over LotR all those years ago).

It would have made sense for Celeborn to have accompanied his wife to Rivendell, as he would have certainly have been a member of the White Council given Galadriel's involvement.

Why do you think he is absent? And do you think other characters whom we have already seen in The Hobbit (e.g. Saruman) could be absent at the Battle of Dol Guldur?

                Something about the fact that Galadriel herself called Celeborn "wise". Nevertheless I see your point// Radagast-Aiwendil Send a private message to Radagast-Aiwendil May 7 2013, 6:30pm

    I never considered Celeborn's absence to be particularly mysterious. Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai May 8 2013, 12:01am
