How do you accept your sudden popularity, especially by the young
It flatters me of course, but I try to keep my feet on the
ground. I still live in the same flat. I still ride a bike in London. My mum
told me that there were many internet pages about me, but I'd rather
not know about it.
With whom did you become friends with the most during
Probably with Viggo Mortensen. He was very nice to me and he
taught me so many things about film.
What was the hardest thing for
To manage to fence and at the same time to keep that elfish harmony
of movements. I found the inspiration from Japanese Samurai: when you see

nothing chaotic in it.
What do you think about LOTR today?
Above all I

Even if I wonīt make any other films in my life... I acted in LOTR and I
will always be very proud of it.
