Michael Martinez writes: I’m not sure how many of you are fans of the LEGEND OF THE SEEKER television show but I was recently given the opportunity to interview Craig Horner, star of the show, for Xenite.Org. The interview is now available online.
With ninth months of intensive shooting for Legend of the Seeker Craig doesn’t get much time to do other projects. Still, considering that he is in New Zealand, I could not help but ask: Any chance you might have a role in ‘The Hobbit’?
“I’m going to look into that,” Craig admitted.
Probably half the actors on the planet intend to look into it but I think he’d make a pretty good Bard the Bowman. That’s just my opinion, for what it’s worth. Although working full-time on a successful show may limit Craig’s chances of winning a role in the Guillermo del Toro movies, he does currently reside in New Zealand. I’m sure he could work something out with the scheduling. And he probably has some good referrals from Bruce Spence (who played the Mouth of Sauron in “The Lord of the Rings”) and John Rhys-Davies (Gimli in LoTR).
“John Rhys-Davies guest-starred in an episode just recently,” Craig revealed to me. “He’s a really great person.”
