Interview with Morfydd Clark

Interview with Morfydd Clark Can't Post

Time Out has an interview with Morfydd Clark. She has two roles in the upcoming film, The Personal History of David Copperfield. No big revelations with regard to the Untitled Amazon Project:

What can you say about it?

Well, itís based in the Second Age and... thatís probably it [laughs]. Youíre welcome!

Apparently the script includes some words or names in Sindarin:

Tolkienís Elvish was influenced by Welsh. Has your native tongue been handy on set?

Oh, definitely. People ask me how to say words and I feel really smug. I read The Hobbit when I was at school and I remember my mum telling me every day that Elvish was based on Welsh. I was like, ďI know! You told me already.Ē

She has visited Weta, although she doesn't say if her visit had anything to do with the current production:

Have you visited Weta, where they made the Rings films, while youíve been there?

I went there and itís unbelievable. My 12-year-old self and my current self were both freaking out. I went to the workshop and saw lots of the old The Lord of the Rings costumes and held a few swords. It was amazing.

Finally, The Two Towers is one of her favorite films:

What movie have you seen more than any other?

Groundhog Day and probably the The Two Towers. I went through this really dark phase in year eight when Iíd come home and watch it every day after school. Iíd be like, ďIím going to straighten my hair and watch The Two Towers Ė no one talk to me.

Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

Not much there, but what there is encouraging so far as it goes. Of course, the likelihood is that like with the films, whatever "Elvish" is used in the series will be "Neo-Elvish" but I'll take what I can get.

Seems a bit odd to single out The Two Towers as being one of your favorite films, since it is really just the middle part of one long story, but at least she seems to have some kind of appreciation for something related to Tolkien.

That's cool! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm glad to hear she's a fan of the movies, at least, and it seems like she knows her Tolkien. As Gandalf would say, "That may be an encouraging thought!"

The more time passes, the more people I meet who like that movie best. I suppose - in its extended form - its the closest in style to a David Lean epic that these films have ever come.

Her using Elvish doesn't tell us too much since the Numenoreans will probably be using it, too. Even in the films, the Gondorians call Gandalf Mithrandir.

In my experience Two Towers is the most popular of the Jackson trilogy among casual fans // [In reply to] Can't Post
