Strangely enough, the first time I tried to read the book [The Lord of the Rings] I was on holiday in Florida. I dropped it in the pool my first day there. If that's not a Pippin thing to do, I don't know what is.
My worst habit is whistling while I sleep.
I love being in Scotland. I'm looking forward to getting back and having a pint. . . .
Working as a bookbinder, I had put covers on The Lord of the Rings, but I never read it. It was just too big. I finally read it when I knew I was playing Pippin and realized that really it is all about Pippin and some other people!
As a person, living in New Zealand for a year and a half has changed me as well. In some ways, I feel Hobbit-y , you know?
It's been two years since we filmed the three Rings films. It was like stepping back in time when I first walked on set. . . . Playing Pippin again was just like saying hello to an old friend.
To play one of the main characters in it, it's not like the kind of thing you don't do. Oh, I'd rather not play Pippin in Lord of the Rings. . . . in fact, I'm trying to think - what else would you rather do, you know? I can't actually think of another job that I'd rather do.
I think the ears are a strange look for me. Quite big. But I loved the hair down to my shoulders. It felt right. I'm thinking of letting my hair go.
I'm delighted to be involved with Discovery. For anyone growing up in Scotland who ever thought about a future in the massively exciting world of film, this is the place to discover the opportunities that are out there to help you achieve it.
Oooo... that was close.
People are scared to make something that doesn't look like another film that made a lot of money. It means we get 'Four Weddings And A Funeral' made again and again.
The club thing is a world people can associate with, letting your hair down at the weekend.
Life in LA is not lying in the sun for months. It is having a 4pm meeting and leaving at noon to sit in traffic for four hours. It's not glam.
Hobbits are a lot like Scots. It's all about nature and enjoying their land, which is a very Scottish thing.
Then there are actors my age like Ethan Hawke, he's in 'Moby Dick,' I love his work. I've been lucky. Alfred Molina, he has real class.
