Actor Luke Evans, who plays Bard in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, was interviewed by ITV Daybreak earlier today (27 March, 2014).
In the interview Luke describes how in New Zealand he lived on the same street as the rest of the cast, with Peter Jackson and Ian McKellen at either end, Andy Serkis two doors down, and Orlando Bloom five doors up. Of Ian McKellen Luke says, “He is…quite brilliant. He’s very funny. He knows how to enjoy the day.” When asked if he’ll be going back for more filming Luke says, “No. I think it’s done”.
