Quotes[edit | edit source]
- "I had quite the harrowing journey to get this role. My desire to be part of the Tolkien world started when I was 14, and I definitely wanted to be an elf. I was struck down, people saying things like, "Elves don't look like you" and that kind of thing, so it was something I pursued pretty aggressively. When the casting calls came out, I knew it was something I must do. I had a couple of rejections in the process; they said the role wasn't going to go in my direction. But I kept fighting and fighting and fighting, something like six or seven months of auditions. And I finally made it to the final screen test, where they flew me to New Zealand with six other guys, and I got the part."

- "It feels like a confirmation that the journey that I started many, many years ago when I became an actor is coming to fruition and that I’m on the right path. I feel I’ve felt ready."
