If you recall, we released an image of two hobbits sitting on a wall in Hobbiton on Monday. [Here] Thanks to a very observant Ringer fan Sam, we now have a name for one of the faces. The hobbit on the left (our left) is Timothy Bartlett, a Wellington (NZ) stage actor best known for playing Bernie Leach on Shortland Street. [More]


Ringer James sends in some more info about Timothy Bartlett :

Just to add another snipper regarding Timothy Bartlett, before he was on Shortland Street he was best known for presenting the children’s TV show “Play School”. This show has something of a cult following in New Zealand, and Kiwis aged 20-30 would no doubt remember Timothy fronting the show.
