Tom Wilkinson

Tom Wilkinson

Academy Award-nominated British character actor Tom Wilkinson (born 1948) has stated that he was offered a part in The Lord of the Rings (film series), but turned it down because he would have had to spend a year in New Zealand.

He was not asked for a specific part; he turned the opportunity down prior to the casting of characters.
