PortrayedLegolas in:
 Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings

Anthony Daniels played Legolas in Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the Rings. It had only been a year since his breakthrough as C-3PO, and he was still working for the Radio Drama Company at the time [1].


"I was delighted that his performance clearly echoed many of the artistic nuances that so inflected my own. Orlando has clearly learned most of his craft from following my work and I think he may have a career as an actor of some kind. His interesting decision, in the role of Legolas, was not to play it as a brunette, as did I, but as a blond. I have never played a blond, even in a cartoon. Now, of course, I play a grey."
