Middle-earth News: Many fans are anxious to see Hobbit cast members in other films or plays. What current projects are you involved in and are there any we can look forward to in the future?
Mark Hadlow: The next projects are lining up. I have been cast in a film called Four Saints which is still in pre-production about four nurses setting up an aid post for wounded men on the front line in WW1. I’m playing a cad called Havistad. I am also about to start rehearsals on two plays one at the Court Theatre in Christchurch, NZ, When The Rain Stops Falling, and a second play, a one man show called MAMIL ( Middle aged Man in Lycra) about a man whose midlife crisis explodes in his face and his rise from the ashes due to the peloton of a men’s biking group. Nine characters all played by me. That opens middle of 2014! And my Navy job, Creative Director for the 75th Anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Navy in 2016 ticks over as well. No let up.
That’s a wrap for this year’s The 12 Days of Dori! Again, we thank Mark for taking the time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions and spread some Yuletide cheer to all you Tolkien fans. We are humbled and forever grateful! Until next year: Happy Yuletide, Middle-earth!
