In Brian Sibley’s In The Hobbit: Official Movie Guide, Richard Armitage is quoted as saying:
“I know there are a million people out there for whom I will probably not be their version of Thorin, but I can only be my version of Thorin”.
I think we’d all struggle to image that the head dwarf could be played by anyone else but our lovely Richard Armitage.
Here are some other images of Thorin Oakenshield that I could find.
I know which one I like most, but I am hardly objective in this matter 🙂
Let’s start with an image from Card for ‘Lord of the Rings LCG’ by Fantasy Flight Games.
Lord of the Rings Online Game presents Thorin with flat head full of grey hair.
Lord of the Rings.org has an image of Thorin that certainly captures the madness and intensity.
At The Hobbit CED you have to wonder of Thorin and Gandalf are twins.
Over at Armchair general Thorin seems like a bit of a porker with evident wrinkles.
Jay Johnstone channels the icon version of Thorin.
Which Thorin is your favorite?
Only joking, but they are interesting, I think you’ll agree..
By the way, how about some Thorin Extra Grande Champagne Cognac.
