Happy LOTR Day!! (2 of 2)

They had red carpet interviews of course.  Each star walked down the red carpet with a handler (or two, couldn't tell).  I only saw the handlers at work twice, and it cracked me up each time.  First time was when Hugo Weaving came up to the interviewer for NZ1 television and he (interviewer) had no clue who Weaving was, so said something like, "Who are we here with?" and handler helpfully says "Hugo Weaving."  (Later, when Peter Jackson introduced each actor to the crowd, he said Weaving played "Agent Elrond."  Heh.)  Second time I saw a handler at work was after Interviewer spoke with Orlando Bloom, Bloom's handler mopped his brow with a little hanky.  I swear to beer; Orlando Bloom had someone to wipe his sweat away.  (Can you say "eBay"?)  Actually, the thing that I want to see on eBay is Bloom's t-shirt.  Peter Jackson was signing shirts like crazy for people lining the red carpet route, so he signed Bloom's shirt too (right in front of Interviewer).  I can't imagine how much money that would get -- but I bet it would be a sizeable donation for a nice charity.

WOW! Back in the States we saw minimal coverage of this event. Sounds like a lot of fun though. Have a good time and be safe..Looking forward to your next entry.

You are SUCH a great girl to take time out to journal about this adventure, NZ. I just got done reading about your Dart River adventure (well, the last 5 entries) and it's all fascinating.

I'd feel guilty about eating the little lambkin, too ...

What color was Orlando's hair? How long? Personally, I think he looks best with that long blond wig! Me want Elfman.

Brown. Curly and wavy. Actually, it was probably the best I've seen him look when he wasn't in costume -- and generally, when he isn't in costume, I don't think he's much to write home about. Then again, I appear to be writing home about him. :)
