     Awesome gif! [In reply to]  

The hair...
The dual sword wielding...
The 'battle' crown ("tiara" doesn't give it justice! Wink)....
The armour....
The swirling cape...

The splendour and magnificence that is Thranduil.

I remember seeing that scene, I think in the B roll video, and PJ shows LP the scene afterwards, and LP declares it to be "awesome!" I have to concur. And I want more.

     He's got two full sized swords, one in each hand (screencaps) [In reply to]  

That gif is from a scene that occurs right around 1:14 of PJ's Production Diary #12. It's hard to see it in the gif because the sword in his right hand is turned so it's not reflecting the light very well but if you watch the full vlog sequence you can see it catch the light for a second before he hits the orc with it. Then we see LP in the tent with PJ watching the playback and he laughs like a little kid and says "That's awesome!"
*a few minutes later after pausing and backtracking the vlog several times* Yes! I finally managed to get a screencap of it! Here you go. See? He's kicking orc butt with two swords! + a pic of a laughing LP just for good measure Wink

     Thanks for that! [In reply to]  

Such an amazing moment from Thranduil - and such a cute moment from Lee! I love how his hair looks slightly dishevelled from filming the scene, afterwards when he's in PJ's tent- I bet he had a team of people descend on him and his wig seconds later to restore the kingly mane back to its former glory! Cool

     Game changer indeed! [In reply to]  

Thanks for those screenshots Eruvandi! Yes, our amazing Thranduil is indeed a fearsome foe and deadly with duo swords. I can't wait to see him in action in the fullness of his glory in Bo5A and then to see him in quieter moments with Bilbo! Oh be still my fluttering heart! Heart

*dashes off to watch the production diary #12 again*

ETA: look at his expression and elegant position even whilst slaying an orc!

I must have missed that vlog because I don't even remember that scene and I usually remember all things Thranduil!

Thank you to both elf-lady and Eruvandi for the screencaps.

The pic on the left is definitely the regal, overly concerned Elven King, but the splayed fingers, spread arms and open mouth of the pic on the right brings to mind Thranduil The Tenured Professor. Tongue And who better to give history lessons in his great hall?

Yes, all those adjectives. Do you all remember those gorgeous black and white studio pictures of each member of the Fellowship? I remember being stunned by Legolas.

     Great pics again Rowan [In reply to]  

They said Viggo threw himself into the part of Aragorn some suggesting he even slept with his sword and I think Lee is doing the same thing (not sleeping with the sword) but totally immersed in the char of Thranduil that even on set when he's not acting and just standing around he still has the air and grace of a king.

     United Cutlery reproducing Thranduil's sword! [In reply to]  

Just found a link for United Cutlery's reproduction of Thranduil's sword!
http://www.budk.com/product/Sword-of-Thranduil/176126.uts

From the description:

Quote
The sword of the Elvenking was one of two twin swords crafted for Thranduil by the finest smiths of the Woodland Realm. The blade and flowing hilt are forged with engraved vine and leaf symbols representing the forests of the Greenwood, all forged from a single piece of silver Elven steel. This replica features a stainless steel blade and cast metal hilt with authentic detailing to precisely match the movie prop. It is presented with a wood wall display featuring graphic motif of Thranduil.

Twin swords!

Yes, especially with that silver robe with the voluminous sleeves (which he wears during his pep talk with Tauriel). Others might drown in that much fabric, but he pulls it off with such grace.
Such perfect casting, and LP inhabits the role.



Haldir never worked for me... but that was the disadvantage of being familiar with Craig Parker on NZ soaps. To me, Haldir was always Craig in a wig which didn't seem to suit him - and I couldn't get past that.
