A question concerning Sauron/Annatar Can't Post

If anyone knows the answer to this question, I'm sure that person would be here.

In the ROTK EE extras, at one point in time we hear about the concept of Aragorn and co seeing the form of Annatar, before Sauron is shown and then does battle. Here you can see Annatar in the abandoned concept.

I was wondering if an actual actor was used to portray this, or if it was just made completely digitally? If an actor was used, who was it?

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

the way I remember it, there was an actor wearing a mocap suit, or one of those green suits, and he and Aragorn did fight, and it was going to be Sauron that he was fighting. However, they decided to not have Sauron fight Aragorn, but they had already filmed the scene, so they digitally placed a troll in, the troll we see him fighting.
Remember how Aragorn says "let the Lord of the black lands come forth!"?
its somewhere in the RotK EE behind the scenes.

Theres some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and its worth fighting for.
