No One Tells Mark “Dori” Hadlow Whether Or Not He Can Work On “The Hobbit”

October 23, 2010 at 1:36 pm by Earl  - 

New Zealand actor Mark Hadlow, revealed only a couple of days ago as being cast as the dwarf Dori in The Hobbit, says he received text and phone messages three weeks ago telling him not to sign on to any roles for the film. Hadlow, who isn’t a member of NZ Actors’ Equity, had got callbacks for four different roles in The Hobbit.

About the missives he received Hadlow says,

“What arrogance. What is that about? No one tells me where I can or can’t work.”

Like many others, Hadlow too hopes the Hobbit movies will be made in New Zealand. Here’s what he says about that:

“I’ll do my utmost to try to convince everybody that New Zealand is the best country in the world to film a film in.”

However, if that’s not the way things work out, Hadlow hopes he can be wherever they film the movies.
