“… On one of the days, when we were at Bag End with the dwarves, John Rhys-Davies came to visit. It was great to introduce him not only to Gloin, who’s his father in the story, but also to all the other dwarves.” - Peter Jackson
Friends of mine got to meet JRD at a convention in Halifax, NS, and he was apparently just amazing. He’d spend as much time as possible with every fan who came to meet him or get something signed, he posed for pictures and chatted with people at the gala (and stayed the entire time, unlike some guests), and he took the time to walk the show floor and visit with people stuck at tables and booths who probably wouldn’t have been able to go meet him or other celebs. Top class.
