Today is Day 3 of ‘The 12 Days of Bombur’, where we find out Stephen’s thoughts on Tolkien’s book, ‘The Hobbit’. Missed yesterday’s Q&A? Click here!
Arwen: Had you read ‘The Hobbit’ before trying out? If not, have you read it since taking on your character’s role? What was your impression of the book?
Stephen: I read it when I was about 8 or 9. In school, I think? Then again before the auditions came up, and after I had been cast. I loved it. I enjoy Tolkien’s writing and his very simple human themes. ‘The Hobbit’ is also easier and quicker to read the ‘The Lord of The Rings’ – that took me ages!
Look for tomorrow’s post ‘The 12 Days of Bombur – Day 4’ where I ask Stephen who is favorite character is in both the films and book.
