PortrayedGimli in:
 The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy

British actor John Rhys-Davies (born 1944) played Gimli in The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy trilogy. He was also the voice for Treebeard in the films. He originally auditioned for the role of Denethor.



"There is an energetic ferocity in Gimli that the film needs. It's often these minor characters who really have to impart a sense of energy and dynamism to a film so that the heroes can actually take their time to respond and be thoughtful and reflective."
― John Rhys-Davies, Southland Times, October 12th, 2000
