Interesting quote from Armitage interview:

SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO HAVENíT READ THE HOBBIT

DP: Would you play your character any differently if you didnít know that at the end of Tolkienís book he dies?

RA: No, probably not. His death scene was left until quite late in the shoot. We didnít shoot it until pick-ups, which I think was a good thing because Iíd almost forgotten about that moment coming. I think that part of the creation of this character is offering the audience and other characters in the movie a potential future. He had to be someone who was going to be king, he was going to sit on that throne and return the dwarves to their former glory. And in a way, his death has to come by surprise to him. Having said that, I think one of the thingsĖ talking about Shakespeare againĖthat I admire about Richard the III is that he rides across the battlefield to fight, single-handedly, for his kingdom, for his crown. In the Battle of the Five Armies, Thorin is going to do something like that. Itís fatalistic. Itís almost an act of suicide. Playing it, itís good I forgot I needed to die!

And one of many great insights from Pace (can't wait for Bo5A):

Q: Did you train to do any fighting?

LP: I trained to fight with swords. The fight scene was one of the most fun things I did on this movie. The stunt guys are so good, and I had the opportunity do quite a bit of the great stunt work, especially in the Battle of the Five Armies.
