Our good friend, reporter for Middle-earth News, and author of The Noldor Blog was recently interviewed by TVNZ! Jack Machiela has been a Lord of the Rings tour guide for Wellington Rover Tours for quite some time now. He’s chalk full of amazing stories and photos of all the celebs he’s met along the way and it looks like his wealth of filming lore has caught the attention of the NZ media. Here’s what he wrote on his blog:
I got a call from TVNZ this morning, to see if I would be available to comment on the trailer later, for their evening news. I told them I’d be touring with a group of LOTR fans, so they invited the whole group along, to watch it at 4:00pm (local NZ time) on the satellite feed! Well, we didn’t have to think about that too long, that’s for sure!
They interviewed us all at length afterwards, although most of that was reduced to some very excited soundbites. We got a few words in towards the end though.
