Scottish actor Billy Boyd (born 1968) played Peregrin "Pippin" Took in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. An accomplished singer, he wrote and sung the dirge "The Steward of Gondor" in The Return of the King, which is featured during Faramir's hopeless charge to Osgiliath.

In 2003, when The Return of the King was released, Boyd also starred in Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Both films were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
