The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring聽is a 2001聽epic聽fantasy聽adventure film聽directed by聽Peter Jackson聽from a screenplay by聽Fran Walsh,聽Philippa Boyens, and Jackson, based on 1954’s聽The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of the novel聽The Lord of the Rings聽by聽J.

STORY



PRODUCTION

Development

Director聽Peter Jackson聽began working with聽Christian Rivers聽to聽storyboard聽the series in August 1997, as well as getting聽Richard Taylor聽and聽Weta Workshop聽to begin creating his interpretation of Middle-earth. Jackson told them to make Middle-earth as plausible and believable as possible, and to think of it in a historical manner.

In November,聽Alan Lee聽and聽John Howe聽became the film trilogy’s primary conceptual designers, having had previous experience as illustrators for the book and various other tie-ins. Lee worked for the Art Department creating places such as聽Rivendell,聽Isengard,聽Moria, and聽Lothl贸rien, giving聽Art Nouveau聽and聽geometry聽influences to the Elves and Dwarves respectively. Though Howe contributed with Bag End and the聽Argonath, he focused on the design of the characters’ armour, having studied it his entire life. Weta and the Art Department continued to design, with聽Grant Major聽turning the Art Department’s designs into architecture, and聽Dan Hennah聽scouting locations. On 1 April 1999,聽Ngila Dickson聽joined the crew as costume designer. She and 40 seamstresses would create 19,000 costumes, 40 per version for the actor and their doubles, wearing them out for an impression of age.



CAST

Before filming began on 11 October 1999, the principal actors trained for six weeks in sword fighting (with聽Bob Anderson), riding and boating. Jackson hoped such activities would allow the cast to bond so chemistry would be evident on screen as well as getting them used to life in聽Wellington. They were also trained to pronounce Tolkien’s verses properly. After the shoot, the nine cast members playing the Fellowship got a tattoo, the Elvish symbol for the number nine, with the exception of聽John Rhys-Davies, whose stunt double got the tattoo instead. The film is noted for having an聽ensemble cast, and some of the cast and their respective characters include:

  • Elijah Wood聽as聽Frodo Baggins: A young聽hobbit聽who inherits the聽One Ring聽from his uncle Bilbo. Wood was the first actor to be cast on 7 July 1999. Wood was a fan of the book, and he sent in an audition dressed as Frodo, reading lines from the novel. Wood was selected from 150 actors who auditioned.聽Jake Gyllenhaal聽unsuccessfully auditioned for the role.
  • Ian McKellen聽as聽Gandalf the Grey: An聽Istari wizard聽and mentor to Frodo.聽Sean Connery聽was approached for the role, but did not understand the plot, while聽Patrick Stewart聽turned it down as he disliked the script.聽Patrick McGoohan聽was also offered the role, but turned it down due to health issues.聽Christopher Plummer聽also turned down the role.聽Sam Neill聽was also offered the role but declined due to his scheduling conflict with聽Jurassic Park III. Before being cast, McKellen had to sort his schedule with聽20th Century Fox聽as there was a two-month overlap with聽X-Men. He enjoyed playing Gandalf the Grey more than his transformed state in the next two films, and based his accent on Tolkien. Unlike his on-screen character, McKellen did not spend much time with the actors playing the Hobbits; instead he worked with their scale doubles.
  • Viggo Mortensen聽as聽Aragorn “Strider” Elessar II: A聽D煤nedain聽ranger聽and heir to聽Gondor’s throne.聽Daniel Day-Lewis聽was offered the part at the beginning of pre-production, but turned it down.聽Nicolas Cage聽also received an offer, declining because of “family obligations”, while聽Vin Diesel, a fan of the book, auditioned for Aragorn.聽Stuart Townsend聽was cast in the role, before being replaced during filming when Jackson realised he was too young.聽Russell Crowe聽was considered as a replacement, but he turned it down because he does not want to be typecast and believed it to be a similar role in聽Gladiator. Day-Lewis was offered the role for a second time, but declined again. Executive Producer聽Mark Ordesky聽saw Mortensen in a play. Mortensen’s son, a fan of the book, convinced him to take the role. Mortensen read the book on the plane, received a crash course lesson in fencing from Bob Anderson and began filming the scenes on Weathertop. Mortensen became a hit with the crew by patching up his costume and carrying his “hero” sword around with him off-camera.
  • Sean Astin聽as聽Samwise Gamgee: Better known as Sam, a hobbit gardener and Frodo’s best friend. Astin, who had recently become a father, bonded with the 18-year-old Wood in a protective manner, which mirrored Sam’s relationship with Frodo.
  • Sean Bean聽as聽Boromir: A son of the聽Stewards of Gondor聽who journeys with the Fellowship towards Mordor.聽Bruce Willis, a fan of the book, expressed interest in the role, while聽Liam Neeson聽was sent the script, but passed.
  • Billy Boyd聽as聽Peregrin Took: Better known as Pippin, an extremely foolish hobbit who is a distant cousin of Frodo and travels with the Fellowship on their journey to Mordor.
  • Dominic Monaghan聽as聽Meriadoc Brandybuck: Better known as Merry, a distant cousin of Frodo. Monaghan was cast as Merry after auditioning for Frodo.
  • John Rhys-Davies聽as聽Gimli: A聽dwarf聽warrior who accompanies the Fellowship to Mordor after they set out from聽Rivendell.聽Billy Connolly, who was considered for the part of Gimli, would later portray聽D谩in II Ironfoot聽in聽Peter Jackson’s聽The Hobbit聽film trilogy. Rhys-Davies wore heavy prosthetics to play Gimli, which limited his vision, and eventually he developed聽eczema聽around his eyes. Rhys-Davies also played Gimli’s father聽Gl贸in聽during the scene where the fellowship is forged.
  • Orlando Bloom聽as聽Legolas Greenleaf: A prince of the elves’聽Woodland Realm聽and a skilled archer. Bloom initially auditioned for聽Faramir, who appears in the second film, a role which went to聽David Wenham.
  • Liv Tyler聽as聽Arwen Und贸miel: An聽elf聽of Rivendell and Aragorn’s lover. The filmmakers approached Tyler after seeing her performance in聽Plunkett & Macleane, and聽New Line Cinema聽leaped at the opportunity of having one Hollywood star in the film. Actress聽Helena Bonham Carter聽had expressed interest in the role. Tyler came to shoot on short occasions, unlike the rest of the actors. She was one of the last actors to be cast, on 25 August 1999.
  • Cate Blanchett聽as聽Galadriel: The elven co-ruler of聽Lothl贸rien聽alongside her husband Celeborn.聽Lucy Lawless聽was considered for the role.
  • Christopher Lee聽as聽Saruman the White: The fallen head of the Istari Order who succumbs to Sauron’s will through his use of the聽palant铆r. Lee was a major fan of the book, and read it once a year. He had also met聽J. R. R. Tolkien. He originally auditioned for Gandalf, but was judged too old.
  • Hugo Weaving聽as聽Elrond: The Elven-Lord of Rivendell who leads the聽Council of Elrond, which ultimately decides to destroy the Ring.聽David Bowie聽expressed interest in the role, but Jackson stated, “To have a famous, beloved character and a famous star colliding is slightly uncomfortable.”
  • Ian Holm聽as聽Bilbo Baggins: Frodo’s uncle who gives him the Ring after he decides to retire to Rivendell. Holm previously played Frodo in a聽1981 radio adaption of聽The Lord of the Rings, and was cast as Bilbo after Jackson remembered his performance.聽Sylvester McCoy, who would later play Radagast the Brown Wizard in聽The Hobbit, was contacted about playing the role, and was kept in place as a potential Bilbo for six months before Jackson went with Holm.
  • Andy Serkis聽as聽Gollum聽(voice/motion-capture): A wretched hobbit-like creature whose mind was poisoned by the Ring after bearing it for 500 years. This character appears briefly in the prologue. In聽Mordor, one can only hear his voice shouting and in聽Moria, only his eyes and his nose appear. Serkis was working on the 1999 six-episode聽Oliver Twist聽miniseries when his agent told him that Jackson wanted to approach him to play Gollum. Despite ultimately accepting the role, Serkis was initially doubtful about taking the part as one of his聽Oliver Twist聽fellow actors opined that it wasn’t a good idea if his face wasn’t going to appear onscreen, aside that Jackson was unsure if Gollum could be portrayed with motion-capture performance as they wished.

The cast also includes:

  • Sala Baker聽as聽Sauron the Deceiver: The Dark Lord of Mordor and the One Ring’s true master who manifests as an聽Eye聽after the destruction of his physical form.
  • Marton Csokas聽as聽Celeborn the Wise: The Elven-Lord of聽Lothl贸rien聽and Galadriel’s husband.
  • Lawrence Makoare聽as Lurtz: The commander of Saruman’s Uruk-Hai forces.
  • Craig Parker聽as Haldir: The leader of the Galadhrim warriors guarding the border of Lothl贸rien.
  • Mark Ferguson聽as聽Ereinion Gil-galad: The last Elven-King of the聽Noldor.
  • Peter McKenzie聽as聽Elendil the Tall: The last High King of Arnor and Gondor.
  • Harry Sinclair聽as聽Isildur: Elendil’s son and Aragorn’s ancestor who originally defeated Sauron.
