Yeah, Sean Astin!

AND NOW I’M LISTENING TO THIS ON LOOP THANKS A LOT

*giggles*

There were bits of the scenes that we filmed, there were scenes that we filmed this summer that were kind of additional scenes that were created or invented based on what he knew the structure of the movie was, after we put it together and worked with it for awhile, that ultimately didn’t make it in the final theatrical release that are pretty cool. There’s a scene where Frodo’s asleep at a campfire, and Sam has a little box of salt. It was kind of a bookend thing, that at a certain part in the beginning of the movie, I drop this box of salt out of my pocket when we’re climbing down the rocks and Frodo catches it, and he hands it back to me. He asks what it is, and I tell him, and he says, “Oh, it’s a little bit of home,” and we kind of have this moment reflecting back to the shire. But, I think, we kind of screeched the plot to a halt early on, so, it didn’t make it in there. But then there’s another scene later on where I’m sitting alone by the campfire after Frodo is – it’s clear to Sam that Frodo is really not well, that the ring is having a really bad, a negative impact on him, and I have this moment where I talk about the fact that he doesn’t remember, and he’s not like he used to be. I’m actually explaining to Gollum that this isn’t the real Frodo, that you don’t really know who Frodo is. It’s a really sweet little scene, at least as it was written. I don’t know if we ultimately nailed it…

I would have been more than happy for the movie to be a few minutes longer and include that! Or better yet, cut out the scene with Eowyn’s stew!!

I want to be your Samwise.

Please let me carry you.

My life is yours to take and

I promise to be your shadow and your cloak,

whichever you want or need more.

I will guard your life as your own.

I will follow you through fire

and death.

Your burden is yours and yours alone,

but I long…

This is gorgeous. Thank you.

It is Sam who is chosen by Gandalf; it is Sam who supports Frodo after he gets the Morgul knife; it is Sam who distrusts Gollum. He is, for me, the hero of the stories—the ordinary man.

Rohan had come at last.

OMG, I remember the first time I read the books when I got to that line, the chills just ran down my spine and tears came to my eyes. It was so incredibly thrilling. And still is. They did a magnificent job of evoking that same feeling in the movie.

I still cry so hard when I read this that I can barely see the page.

I worked as a Set PA on the film Amazing Love (Sean AstinErin Bethea) and The Lost Medallion 


Watching the actors while working as a Set PA allowed me to learn a lot about acting and the movie making process.


How cool!

Today’s Matching Pair is called ‘Through the Looking Glass’. :) I’ve always loved loved loved this pic of Sean so much (wish I had it in a better quality, though). And I have no idea what’s going on in Elijah’s pic, but there’s definitely a story there.

Yes, definitely a story!
