Stephen Fry and Luke Evans Have Arrived in New Zealand

After a break from the first leg of production, there are signs that The Hobbit is getting ready to start filming again. In just the last 24 hours both Stephen Fry and Luke Evans have landed in New Zealand to begin preparing for their roles.

Fry is playing the part of the Master of Laketown, an elected official inclined to look out for himself rather that others. Evans’ role is Bard the Bowman, described to be a grim-faced man but of a good, steady character. Much to their fan’s delight, both actors have been “Tweeting” their New Zealand experiences on Twitter. Check out some of their posts below:
