Lord of the Rings 20 years on
« on: December 19, 2021, 08:50:13 AM »
20 years on, Lord of the Rings stars Sean Bean, Viggo Mortensen, and Dominic Monaghan reflect on the iconic trilogy
Quote
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring turns twenty this year, so when we had the chance to speak to some of the Fellowship themselves, we couldn't miss the opportunity to ask some questions about the ironic trilogy.

Digital Spy spoke to Viggo Mortensen aka Aragorn, Dominic Monaghan (Merry), and Sean Bean (Boromir), and all were as effusive as you could imagine talking about The Lord of the Rings.

Living up to the legacy
Sean Bean: It was just such a wonderful experience to be part of something that, you know, I'd read as a teenager, and I read it quite thoroughly. And that was it. I put the book down. And then to be asked to play the part of Boromir – all the characters are kind of set in stone now. They're kind of legendary. To do that was such a great thing to be able to do. I never thought it would take off as it did, you know? We weren't aware of what they were doing with all the other units, and how they were putting it all together.

A true fellowship
SB: But it was just getting to know everybody and the crew, with all the hobbits and… you know. It was something we were all doing together at the same time, and we all just loved it. It was unusual, in a sense, yeah. Peter was a great pal.

The cherished memories
SB: Wow, there's so many. I mean, the one that stayed with me was when Viggo was surfing at the weekend. He certainly lost his board, and he ended up rocking up, with a massive shiner.

Twenty years have passed since we all first visited Peter Jackson’s vision of Middle-earth; to celebrate the anniversary of the release of The Fellowship of the Ring, our friends at NZ Post have released a very special coin. Here’s what they tell us about it:
