Cate Blanchett Talks About Returning To Role Of Galadriel

September 12, 2012 at 2:38 am by Earl  - 

Spanish website Milenio has an interview up with Cate Blanchett discussing, among other things, her return to the role of Galadriel in The Hobbit.

Thanks to our message board member HiddenSpring for sending along a translation of the relevant bit.

Milenio: It’s been 12 years since you played Galadriel. How did it feel going back to that character and that universe?

Cate Blanchett: I’m more mature as an actress; that’s what made me want to play her again. Peter called me and thought I might not accept the role. I told him “Are you kidding me? Of course I will!” 

Galadriel is a special character to me, mythic and fascinating. It was as enjoyable to shoot as Lord of the Rings. When I wore the elf ears again, I had this wonderful feeling of dejá vú. I couldn’t stop laughing.

I was very young when I played Galadriel. I hope to have evolved, to be a better actress, person and mother. Professionally I think I’m much more flexible now, and easier to work with. I know Peter thinks so! (laughs) Come Christmas the audience will be able to decide for themselves.

A lively discussion has ensued on our message boards. Feel free to check it out.

    “Professionally I think I’m much more flexible now, and easier to work with. I know Peter thinks so!” That made me chuckle, and now I’m curious. 😀

    There is no other and can be no other person to play Galadriel. Cate Blanchett is beyond amazing. Her physical presence on film captures what an eldar of Noldor and Vanyar heritage would be like. I cannot wait to see her as this character again.

    She is a 100% class act!

    “It was as enjoyable to shoot as Lord of the Rings.”

    Mistranslation. This should read “it was SO enjoyable to shoot the Lord of the Rings”. The word “tan” can be translated as “as” or “so”. The translation as presented in the article makes no sense.

    One detail: Milenio is not Spanish, it’s Mexican.

    Great actress, I’m so looking forward to seeing her as Galadriel again!
