The LOTR Movie Site
March 14, 2000Bernard
Hill is Theoden
Sources have been reporting this for a while, but I was not
willing to break the news until I had firm evidence that actor Bernard Hill will play
In a recent UK Radio
Times article, Hill admits that he is involved in LOTR:
"... now I'm off to New Zealand for a
few months to film The Lord of the Rings with Ian Holm, Sean Bean and Ian McKellen. I play
Theodon, King of Rohan, and all-action, middle-aged hero! I'll be there for most of the
year -- there are three films in all, though I'm only in two ..."
Images and a bio of Bernard Hill will be
available soon. If you have any resources to offer, please feel free to drop me an e-mail. Thanks.
On another slightly unrelated note, another
reliable source tells me that Bernard Hill (Theoden), Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) and
Miranda Otto (Eowyn) are currently shooting at the Helm's Deep recreation in Miramar.
