fascinating post Bomby! [In reply to] Can't Post

I am an archer myself, so while I'm still a bit amateur (don't get as much time as I would wish to practice due to two small kids) I would have LOVED to work with weapons training in some capacity.

I am also 5 foot, so I would have absolutely adored being a scale double (except on the infamous scene 88, I'm sure Wink)

I have also dealt with animals, and can ride quite well, so I wouldn't have minded working with the horses.

I can sew (though not as good as the prod crew! Those costumes are BEAUTIFUL), so I wouldn't have minded the costuming department either.

If it weren't for the LONG days and early mornings (I have a sleep disorder) I wouldn't have minded makeup either.

I also am an actress (extra work so far, but I don't live in the best area for it and so there isn't much work to be had unless I can come up with money to fly to auditions- but I REFUSE to move to hollywood- lived in southern California for 4.5 years from kindergarten to 4th grade, and HATED it). Viggo Mortensen lives an hour north, but he's got PLENTY of money to fly all over the place for auditions....maybe I have a rich relative somewhere- oh, wait. Everyone in my extended family is broke...Crazy

I would have loved to have been one of the dwarves (but a) I'm female, and b) me next to the dwarf actors would have made me look like a female hobbit compared to them!)

There's an idea....

Too bad I live in the US, and not NZ.... Pirate My hair is naturally very curly, so I would have made a great hobbit, I think.... Unsure
