The Hobbit: Richard Armitage Discusses His Role as Thorin Oakenshield

Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield) had some interesting things to say recently about his role in The Hobbit.

Richard Armitage recently talked with TOTAL FILM about his role as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journey. According to Armitage, we will know quite a bit more about the race of dwarves by the time we are through watching the films.

On the dwarves playing a more prevalent part in The Hobbit films than they did in LOTR...

“The book is so focused on the dwarves, so I think it’s a chance for Peter [Jackson] and Fran [Walsh] to really look at that whole race in more detail, their heritage and what they’re like as characters.”

On wielding Thorin’s legendary goblin sword Orcrist and wearing the awesome armour of the dwarves...

“It’s bloody heavy! But it’s absolutely beautiful to look at. Every time they bring something new out everyone gasps. The armour that the dwarves emerge from the mountain wearing at the end of the film will be the armour of all armour.”

On some things remaining unchanged between The Hobbit and LOTR...

“There was a scene in The Lord Of The Rings where they find the stone trolls, and they’re identical in The Hobbit.

“I love those moments, when you link into the world of the film that you’ve seen before.”


Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey stars Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, Richard Armitage, Stephen Fry, Lee Pace and Andy Serkis and many others, is set to hit theaters December 2012.

Bilbo Baggins, a Hobbit, journeys to the Lonely Mountain accompanied by a group of dwarves to reclaim a treasure taken from them by the dragon Smaug.
