The good folks over at SFX mag have sent me over a small snippet of their recent interview with Billy Boyd. Boyd will play the young Hobbit Pippin in all 3 LOTR films. Here is what he had to say:
SFX: So just how tall are you?
BB: Five foot six, A wee bit taller than a hobbit.
SFX: And how do you feel about being shrunk down with computerized jiggery pokery?
BB: Well that’s the thing – I’m not sure what exactly they’re going to do with it. I think there will be times where they will use computers, but I think they’re going to use more conventional means as well, trying not to swamp it too much with special effects because the story is so important.
The rest of the interview will be in the latest issue of SFX due out September 1st, be sure to get your copy today!
