Looking For A Name... Lady Hobbit in The Fellowship Can't Post

Hello there... yep, I'm a total newbie to this board, please don't hold that against me! ;)

My kids and I were talking about the young lady hobbit who is in the party scene at the beginning of The Fellowship, shown dancing with Frodo. We were hoping we might find her name in the credits, but I have gone to imdb.com and also carefully viewed the credits at the end of the movie, and I'm not finding anything.

Is there ANY WAY to find out either the name of the character, or the name of the actress who played her, or both??? If you have some good ideas on how to search this out, or if you already know the answer(s)... PLEASE drop a note here and let me know?? Thank ye!! :)

Welcome to TORN! [In reply to] Can't Post

Nice to see you here JLE. :)

The character is Rosie, and the actress is Sarah MacLeod - a woman who is as delightful in person as she is on screen. (She went to university with a friend of mine and I met her a couple of times when we were in our early 20s ... last year *cough*).

Here is a bit more information on her: http://www.theonering.net/movie/cast/mcleod.html

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Does Rosie dance with Frodo? [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't see that she does. The only person that appears to 'dance with' Frodo is this lady who dances 'near' him.

There is one shot where couple swings and all do a grand chain (moving from one person to the next in a circle, Gents one direction... ladies the other...). In this shot, Frodo is swinging someone and then moves onto and past the next lady who is Rosie. But he doesn't stop with to dance with Rosie. And it's impossible to see who Frodo is swinging so I don't think this is the scene in question.

Enjoy the LOTR movie soundtracks?

welcome - mae govannen... [In reply to] Can't Post

don't be shy or scared...we dont bite!Cool

The only thing i can think of (from memory) is if it was Rosie or one of the Took/Brandybuck relations...

Elven by name, Hobbit by nature

'Road lead ever on and on
down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...

Whoops, sorry. [In reply to] Can't Post

I misread the post last night. That'll teach me to check out TORN immediately before bed.

Hey hey! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for the answers, you guys! :) Yeah, that picture you linked to, that's the one! It's a really short scene and I don't see her again afterwards, even in the scene where Bilbo is talking to everyone. In a way she's only dancing 'next' to him, but in a way it looks like they're kinda dancing together and everyone is gathered 'round watching them... but they aren't dancing in a way where they are touching each other at all. She's definitely not in the credits, probably just a paid extra, but I thought maybe someone here might happen to know her or know something about her anyway... figured it was worth a shot! :) Thanks again for trying to help! :)
