Abbington: Hobbit cast like family

December 5, 2011 at 7:17 pm by xoanon  - 

Amanda Abbington has revealed The Hobbit set is like a big family. The 37-year-old actress has taken her two young children, Joe and Grace, to the other side of the world to watch their dad, actor Martin Freeman, take on the biggest role of his life to date as the lead hobbit Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s big screen adaptation.

Amanda revealed: “It was sacred ground, so before they could start filming we had this thing called a ‘powhiri’ where the Maoris accept you into their family.

“Ian McKellen made a wonderful speech about how actors are a tribe of people as well, who don’t recognise colour, creed or religion. They’re just thrown together.
