To help those affected by the February earthquake that struck the south island of New Zealand, the Hobbit cast has signed a beautifully bound copy of ‘The Hobbit’ for Rise Up Christchurch. Alongside their autographs, many of the cast wrote personal notes to Christchurch. Here are some examples:
Richard Armitage– “For Christchurch Love, Richard A”
John Callen– “Kia Kaha Chirstchurch John Callen”
Ken Stott– “Best Wishes, Ken Stott”
Adam Brown– “All the Best Adam Brown (Ori) OX”
James Nesbitt– “Best Wishes, James Nesbitt (Bofur)”
Stephen Hunter– “Stay Strong Christchurch! We are all behind you Stephan Hunter ( Bombur)”
Peter Hambleton– “Go ChCh! Peter Hambleton”
Dean O’Gorman– “Hang in there Chch! Dean O’Gorman”
Graham McTavish– “All the very best to Christchurch Graham R. McTavish”
Sir Ian McKellen went even as far to sketch a full page drawing of Gandalf enjoying some long bottom leaf with the message, “love from Middle Earth Ian McKellen 2011”. Other autographs include Sir Christopher Lee, Mark Hadlow, Jed Brophy and more.
If you’d like to get your hands on this gem, you have until Thursday June 2nd, 2011, so get bidding and help Christchurch recover!
