I’d read this book [The Hobbit] over and over and over as a kid. Then I got into The Lord Of The Rings as an adult, but sadly I was never in a position to even be considered for that trilogy. So I came in to talk to them about maybe doing another character with a smaller role and less commitment. They had everyone read the same character and then it sort of disappeared and I thought, “Well, it was nice to meet them,” and started to proceed with the other job. Then they did a press release to say it was all happening, and I got a call saying, “Could you just hold off from that job?” To be honest, there’s nothing that would have stopped me from doing Thorin. If I never do another piece of work again after this, I think I’ll be happy, genuinely happy. It feels like an arrival.
