Ori, Dori and Oin at Cardiff Film and Comic Con. Can't Post

Hi guys,

I was at Cardiff Film and Comic Con at the weekend. It was attended by Adam Brown (Ori), Mark Hadlow (Dori) and John Callen (Oin). They were all such lovely people to speak to, very down to earth and very thankful for being part of the films.

They did 2 cast Talks over the weekend, both of which i attended. They talked about various things during filming and the fun they had on set. Also they said that going to conventions and meeting fans makes them so happy to be part of Tolkien fandom.

They also talked a little about film 3 and Eagles. They were talking about how Sir Ian McKellen liked to mess around on set, and spoke of a scene in film 3. I cannot remember the exact line, but the basis of it was ''The Eagles came for you.'' which Gandalf says to someone. Sir Ian kept changing it to ''The Beagles came for you.'' which kept making the rest of the people laugh. So that confirms Eagles in film 3, even though that was a given really..

Mark Hadlow also brought a Smaug coin with him, which he showed to the crowd, and mentioned that a few of the Dwarf actors kept knicking them from the set. :). John Callen also brought his Ear horn, which was crushed, but very cool!

The cast panels, and meeting the actors themselves was fantastic. All such lovely guys.

On the spur of the moment i recorded a few clips of the panels on my phone, the video quality is poor. but they are still quite fun!
