Martin Freeman’s Last Shot as Bilbo Baggins

After Gandalf and Legolas, Peter Jackson showed us the last moment on set of the protagonist of Tolkien’s first story: Bilbo Baggins played by Martin Freeman.

Another touching moment.


“Tonight Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins. The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role – a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill. 

We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups, and it’s wall to wall dwarves. These pick-ups have been gruelling and intense, but I’m so happy with what we’ve been shooting. These next two movies are going to be pretty great!”

    Martin Freeman rocks! I’m not sure whether it’s more disturbing to see Dr. Watson in Middle Earth or Bilbo in Sherlock, but he’s always the one that is the real . He’s great actor and just has to do some Hitchhiker’s Guide stuff to be cool beyond belief… …err, yes. 😉
