I HAVE the LOTR Audition Scripts!
Direct from a super secret source deep in the mines of Moria comes a bunch of casting scripts from ‘Three Foot Six’. These are the scripts that the casting directors make the actor hopefulls read before them to see if they have the right ‘stuff’. Perhaps you’ve seen Mark Hamill or Henry Thomas (Eliot from E.T.) doing their auditions, it’s very a very interesting procedure (as far as I’m concerned at least!). What I wouldn’t give to see some of these audition tapes!
The small snippets of script that I have may not even make it into the final takes due to time or dialogue changes, yet it’s still an interesting read! While I cannot post them directly, I will read them all, compare them to the two Miramax scipts I’ve read, as well as the books, and write something up soon! Keep an eye out!
The scripts I have are for the characters: two for Aragorn, Arwen, Bilbo, Boromir, Denethor, Elrond, Eowyn, Faramir, two for Frodo, Galadriel, Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, Merry, Pippin, two for Sam, Saruman, Theoden, and WormtonguePosted in Old Main News on May 1, 2000 by xoanon
