This is the morning after The Hobbit live fan event and I’m experiencing a slight hangover.
First of all, I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I usually shy away from the frenzy, but this time I managed to embrace it and share it with others from our humble fandom.
I think I was a little too enthused as I feel a tad like I’ve been partying hard with a group of dwarves 😉
The internet connection was exemplary (although I did have backup, just in case) and the feed was perfect.
My only complaint isn’t that there wasn’t enough Richard (duh! is there ever?) but that it ended so abruptly.
As I said on Twitter, it felt like my invite was revoked just as the party was in full swing.
Turns out, just as our feed broke, the actors also exited, which is a crying shame as I wished our RA friends would get more juicy RA details.
The highlights were Richard answering the only question he was asked.
Here’s an impromptu pic I made before I forced myself to get some shut-eye:
I really like Evangeline Lily, who no doubt is aware that some Hobbit fans are giving her evils (No hatin! she said), Lee Pace strutting his elvish stuff and the juicy additional The Hobbit: DOS clips.
*puts Sherlock dear stalker hat on*I wanted to take this opportunity to try to deduce a little something about what Richard has been up to.
The long curls are still in tact, he also seems to be growing a beard.
The thing that struck me was how slender he looked.
Not quite Spooks Lucas North season 7, but I think it’s safe to say that Richard isn’t preparing to shoot an action movie.
The question is, does this slimmer frame mean he’s actually auditioning/preparing/shooting something or is it just the strain of shooting three films back to back, relocating to NY?
Does he perhaps miss English food and his mother’s cooking?
I wish he’d make it easier to deduce by, I don’t know, having a script sticking out from his (gorgeous) leather coat pocket or accidentally spilling the beans by using another character’s name instead of Thorin.
As always. Richard knows what’s going on, but he’s not telling!
We’ll get you next time though, Mr A!
Care to do some deducing of your own?
