Is that the same kid [In reply to] Can't Post

who earlier gets sent away on the horse with his little sister by their mum? Their mum was played by the actress who was instigating the actors union issues that helped delay the filming of the hobbit, or at least put it at risk of not being filmed in New Zealand.....grrrrrrr.

no, not the same boy. [In reply to] Can't Post

The young boy sent away on a horse was Éothain played by Sam Comery.

Instigating is a somewhat loaded word - usually used negatively. I for one, am not against union activities and think the whole incident was more nuanced than 'good guys' vs 'bad guys'.

This statement by Robyn might provide a balance to your negative opinion of her:

But I'm not hoping to renew a debate about unions and past obstacles for The Hobbit films. It's just my zodiac sign is Libra and I'm always hoping to put things in perspective and facilitate fair and balanced presentations of situations.

Grrrrrr seems a bit extreme, don't you think? [In reply to] Can't Post

Perhaps the actress in question has a different view of labor issues than you do? And perhaps that is perfectly okay?

Not to mention that IMO, there really was no credible risk of the film ever moving away from NZ...

Read up on "Negotiating 101."

Sharku. [In reply to] Can't Post

There are also Skull Head orc and the Morannon orc at Pelennor. I'm not sure if they're named, but they do have a few lines each, and a distinctive look.

Irolas is mostly a watered down version of Beregond, so in a way is an under-expanded character :D I like the way he is the only blond Gondorian though (from memory).
