Absolutely true... [In reply to] Can't Post

... having been to acting school myself, I had the feeling too that quite a lot of people were actually pretty shy (including myself) but could let that shyness go once they hit the stage or the camera was on.

A lot of mucial actors I have talked to also said that they love being on stage as a character but do not enjoy giving concerts - without a role to stand in front of them.

As for RA - of course he has to give such interviews, whether it is part of his contract for TH or in regard to his personal career. It can end badly if you totally close yourself off from the typical media cycle. I do not really see anything offensive in what he says - at least he seems to be honest rather than fake.

nicely said, shirehorse [In reply to] Can't Post

(love your handle, btw...)

cheers --


aka. fili orc-enshield
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel
