It’s Cameo Time

December 20, 2003 at 2:42 pm by Demosthenes  - 

Cameos, cameos everywhere … Here’s just a few of the cameos from Return of the King – there’s probably lots more as well.

  • Sean Astin’s daughter plays Elanor, daughter of Sam and Rosie.
  • Sarah McLeod’s daughter plays Frodo, son of Sam and rosie.
  • Peter Jackson’s children have cameos as Gondorian children.
  • Peter Jackson is the captain of the Corsairs of Umbar. He also had a longer ‘cameo’ of around two minutes where he battles a major character – reportedly Legolas – but decided to cut it from the theatrical release. He spoke about this at the world premiere press conference in Wellington.
  • TORn Staffer Quickbeam has a few seconds of fame as a Gondorian soldier.
  • Previsualisation supervisor Christian Rivers as the Gondorian soldier in charge of the beacon.
  • Senior prosthetics supervisor Gino Acevedo is a Corsair of Umbar.
  • Richard Taylor is a Corsair of Umbar.
  • Bret McKenzie makes a reappearance as Figwit (one of Arwen’s escorts) and even gets to speak some lines!
  • John Howe appears as a Gondorian soldier.
  • Royn Tolkien plays a Gondorian ranger preparing the defences of the ruined city of Osgiliath, braced for an assault by the evil lord Sauron’s armies of orcs. Read more on BBC Online
