The LOTR Movie Site
April 20, 2000
I saw Dominic Monaghan (Merry) in quite a major role in the
British programme Monsignor Renard the other night. He was really good, really moving and
a much better actor then when I last saw him (in Hetty Wainthrop). Anyway, I then went
nosing over the main site for Monsignor Renard and low and behold, found this interview
He ever mentions the new film, though the interview was
clearly done some months ago. Since he's such an unknown to most people outside the UK
thought you might be interested:
Oh, and P.S. on the Boromir issue, he definately did not look into the mirror of Galadriel
in the BBC radio production. Only Frodo and Sam did. For myself, I think it's just another
bit they've added in to the film to make it more obvious to people why Boromir wants the
ring so badly.
Maybe Frodo slips and falls up on the mountains and drops it,
Boromir picks it up, but before handing it back is enthralled by it. So later on he tries
to take it back. Just one option.
