Legolas’ blue eyes [In reply to] Can't Post

Do we know that Legolas’ blue eyes are CGI? I’d like to know the source of that info. I think it is on one of the documentaries on the DoS TE DVD that we see Orlando putting in a contact lens and then whistling and laughing and saying something like “That is a blue eye.” “Aquamarine” he calls it, IIRC.

To me Elijah Wood looks very little different physically. Orlando has changed a little more and so Hobbit Legolas looks a little less like the LotR Legolas, even if we ignore his eyes (which in LotR were sometimes blue and sometimes brown). His character is rather different, which to my mind is a good thing. I’m interested to see how this wilder, less sympathetic and less likeable Legolas develops and where he ends up.

I would certainly rather have both these actors than replacements in these movies even if time has marched on and they have changed somewhat. But then I don’t have a problem with the presence of Frodo or Legolas, especially the latter.

            True. Bloom was fresh out of drama school and playing a mythical being. Not an easy task. DaughterofLaketown Send a private message to DaughterofLaketown Aug 24, 4:28am
