James Nesbitt, who plays Bofur in The Hobbit movies, has flown home with his family, leaving New Zealand for Northern Ireland following the death of his mother, May.  She was 79 and suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.  Thanks to Ringer Almarek for alerting us to this news; everyone here at TORn would like to extend their deepest sympathy to Nesbitt and all his family.

    Not trying to be a troll … but wouldn’t it be much nicer if TORN simply DIDN’T post news of such personal nature? I think nothing expresses sympathy quite like a allowing someone a little privacy.
