Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who played Samwise Gamgee?

Answer: Sean Astin

Sean Astin made his first feature film at age 14, playing Mikey Walsh in "The Goonies". He has been in over 25 films, including "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, in which he plays Samwise "Sam" Gamgee. He has also co-directed his own films such as "Kangaroo Court" and "The Long and Short of It".

He has also directed some episodes of WB's "Angel". Samwise Gamgee, the Baggins's gardener (at Bag End up in Hobbiton) comes along on the journey to Mordor as Frodo Baggins' trusty servant and best friend.

He helps Frodo along throughout the trip and is somewhat the hero. He helped Frodo when he was captured by orcs in Mordor and carried the Ring himself for a while, while he was nursing Frodo back to health.
2. Who does the actress Liv Tyler play?

Answer: Arwen

Liv Tyler is the daughter of Aerosmith's lead singer Steve Tyler. She never took acting lessons, yet has been in over a dozen movies, including the "Lord of the Rings" movies. She also starred in "Armageddon", where she played Grace Stamper, the daughter of the oil driller and hero Harry Stamper.

She started modeling at the age of 14 and is famed for her height and beauty. Arwen Undomiel, Evenstar of her people, and daughter of Lord Elrond of Rivendell, is in love with the heir to the throne of Gondor and Ranger, Aragorn son of Arathorn.

In the end of the trilogy she does marry Aragorn and becomes Queen Arwen.
3. Is it true that Ian Holm plays Lord Elrond?

Answer: No

Actually, the actor Hugo Weaving plays Lord Elrond. Hugo Weaving had been in 32 movies before the "LOTR" films. He plays Agent Smith in "The Matrix" trilogy. His first film was the 1963 film "The City's Edge", in which he plays Andy White. Elrond Half-Elven had received one of the 3 rings: Vilya the Ring of Air, from Gil-Galad.

He was there at the first defeat of the Dark Lord Sauron. He had lead Isildur to the pit of Mount Doom, where the ring should have been destroyed, but Isildur denied the offer of destroying the ring. Lord Elrond then married Celebrian and had two sons, and one daughter.
4. Who plays King Theoden?

Answer: Bernard Hill

Bernard Hill has been in a number of movies other then the "LOTR" series; he was in William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" as Egeus, and he played Captain EJ Smith in "Titanic" in 1997.
King Theoden is King of Rohan. A servant of Saruman called Grima Wormtounge was controlling him and affected his health and behaviour. He was later cured by Gandalf, and went on to fight in the battle at Helm's Deep.
5. Is it true that Miranda Otto is the lovely actress who plays Éowyn?

Answer: Yes

Miranda Otto comes from an acting family. She has been in many movies such as "What Lies Beneath", and "Human Nature". She was born in Australia and became an actress instead of becoming a doctor, as planned.
Eowyn is the niece of King Theoden and Lady of Rohan. She falls in love with Aragorn, but when he marries Arwen she marries Faramir, Boromir's brother.
6. Who provides the voice of Gollum?

Answer: Andy Serkis

Andy Serkis also provides all movements and actions of Gollum. He had to wear a blue suit with sensors on it so that the computer could read his movements, and make Gollum's reactions look as real as possible.
7. Who provides the voice of Fangorn, a.k.a. TreeBeard?

Answer: John Rhys-Davies

John Rhys-Davies did not only do the voice of Treebeard, but also played Gimli the dwarf. John Rhys-Davies appeared in a Bond film, "The Living Daylights", and two "Indiana Jones" films. He also played in the T.V. series "Helen of Troy".

Treebeard is the great ent who helps in the war, along with his fellow ents.
8. Is it true that David Wenham plays Faramir?

Answer: Yes

David Wenham is another Australian actor (like Miranda Otto and Hugo Weaving). He has been in numerous movies, such as "Moulin Rouge!", and "The Crocodile Hunter".
Faramir of Gondor is Boromir's brother, and son of Denethor, Lord of Gondor. He becomes very ill and is almost killed by his father in a fire. He then falls in love with Eowyn, Lady of Rohan, and they get married.
9. Who plays Peregrin Took?

Answer: Billy Boyd

Billy Boyd is a Scottish actor who just can't get away from theatre, since he prefers to act in front of crowds on stage. He has also been in many plays in his home town. He has been in other movies such as "The Far Side of the World" and "Sniper470".

Peregrin Took is also known as Pippin and is a fun loving hobbit who only thinks about food. In a way, Pippin is the troublesome hobbit who later learns from making mistakes (such as when he dropped the skeleton and the bucket down the well in the first movie) and becomes a knight of Gondor.
10. Who does the actor Ian Holm play?

Answer: Bilbo Baggins

Ian Holm has been in over one-hundred movies, such as "Frankenstein" and "War of the Roses". He is a very successful actor.

Bilbo Baggins was once the ring bearer until he passed the ring on to Frodo. Later in life, Frodo and Bilbo go off to the Grey Havens with the elves.
