what happened to Gamling? Can't Post

In Rotk the last shot we see of Gamling is him riding beneath a Mumakil with his bow and he is not seen again.
Has their been any talk in interviews or anything in which Gamling's fate is revealed? Because I cannot remember any.

In the book [In reply to] Can't Post

He rides back to Edoras for Théoden's funeral, rather than march on the Black Gate.

10. What happened with Gamling after the battle on Pellenor fields?

As I say, Gamling was not written in the original script so there was no ending for his character. I would have loved to see him beside Eomer at the coronation, or having a great death ( like Haldir ) at Pelenor, but there was no room for writing in scenes that were not needed by that stage. So in my world Gamling retired to a ranch in Rohan, where he was bathed daily by scantily clad beauties, while being feed grapes and other such delights as he drank fine mead and had his aching body massaged under the heavens.

Sounds good!

"Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!"
"Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye."
"Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may."
"Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!"
"But no living man am I! I am Eowyn, daughter of Theodwyn!"
"Er, really? My mother's name was Theodwyn, too!"
"No way!"
"Wow! Let's stop fighting and be best friends!"
