  • Yeah!

  • What a show today

  • The countdown to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is on

  • It hits theatres on December 14

  • and today we get a chance to talk with one of the film's stars

  • Please welcome, it's our honour to say hello to

  • Richard Armitage!

  • Welcome

  • Hi I've got to dip you

  • Who told you to dip me?

  • Apparently it's the Canadian way

  • I love it

  • You'll have to dip all Canadian talk show hosts

  • Welcome

  • Thank you so much

  • Have you been to Canada before?

  • This is my first time

  • Really? What do you think of it so far?

  • The guy at immigration gave me a smile and

  • said hello like I was a human being so I'm very happy

  • Let's talk about your character

  • First of all, how do you play a dwarf at 6'2"?

  • That was my question when I went in to meet Peter

  • Peter Jackson

  • Yeah, Peter Jackson

  • I couldn't quite work out why I was there

  • But they'd written a scene for the character

  • which really encompassed everything he was

  • And I looked at a lot of the paintings by Alan Lee and John Howe

  • I realized what they were doing with this character

  • In terms of getting smaller we actually

  • get bigger to get smaller

  • We have massive boots and a big muscle suit, prosthetics

  • And then Peter works his magic on the computer

  • Wow, he's pretty amazing

  • He really is a genius

  • I don't use that word lightly but he really is

  • Right, he thinks the world of you too

  • I hear a lot of comments he has about you

  • that this is breakthrough for you

  • This is big time

  • And you're on this show and you're going to forget

  • all about us when you become a superstar

  • I just know it

  • I actually forgot it was Christmas

  • I saw Christmas trees and I was like, "Yes, of course"

  • Of course because you've been so busy

  • Into The Hobbit

  • Tell me about your character

  • How do you say the proper name?

  • Thorin Oakenshield

  • Okay and what about this character?

  • He's got kind of questionable parents

  • Kind of a questionable background

  • He is bequeathed a revenge quest

  • by his grandfather and his father

  • So he comes into this story with a bit of

  • a burden on his shoulders

  • And there was a danger of him being a cantankerous bad-tempered dwarf

  • so we looked for humor in the character

  • But in terms of his leadership

  • I actually became inspired by Peter Jackson himself

  • because he leads his team with such dignity

  • and a quiet authority and people come back and work with him

  • again and again

  • so I really took that as something I'd like to bring to Thorin

  • I didn't want to command respect but I wanted to earn loyalty

  • That's really who he is

  • Let's see you in action, Richard

  • Here we go, as Thorin

  • Was that a wolf? Are there wolves out there?

  • Wolves? No that is not a wolf

  • Warg scouts!

  • An Orc pack is not far behind

  • Orc pack?

  • Who did you tell about your quest beyond your kin?

  • No one

  • Who did you tell?

  • No one, I swear

  • What in Dorin's name is going on?

  • You are being hunted

  • So big, this is so big

  • Shot in New Zealand?

  • That was all in New Zealand

  • And that was my own beard as well which I'm very proud of

  • You were the only cast member that grew your own beard, right?

  • I started with a fake beard and then we had a break

  • because Pete wasn't well for awhile

  • so I actually realized I had time to grow something very similar

  • What was strange is that my own beard came through with exactly

  • the same grey of the beard that they created

  • It was serendipitous

  • It was meant to be

  • So you're walking the streets of wherever you live with this beard

  • People are going, "Whatever happened to him?"

  • He's an actor

  • There's something not right with him, right?

  • How long till you got back into filming?

  • Was it a couple months you had to wait?

  • It was only 6 weeks

  • And we stayed in New Zealand and continued our dwarf training

  • What is that? What's dwarf training?

  • We worked with Terry Notary who's a Canadian

  • I think he trained with Cirque du Soleil

  • It was called Boot Camp where we wore these enormous boots

  • and Martin Freeman suggests it was occasionally quite camp

  • We learned how to run and fight and Terry got us to

  • wear these weight belts so our centre of gravity was lower

  • because Peter wanted us to feel like warriors

  • rather than diminutive people

  • It was a lot of fun

  • There was a lot of bonding with the dwarves

  • and we'd go out and drink afterwards

  • How about the premiere you attended in New Zealand?

  • The whole country showed up, am I right?

  • I don't know if you saw this footage

  • There's Peter right there

  • Look at this, this is huge stuff

  • So many of the stars there

  • How did you feel?

  • Was it magical for you?

  • On the day, from my hotel room, I could see them

  • rolling out that red carpet

  • and I stood there feeling really emotional because

  • after 278 film days

  • so many of the local people had been involved

  • in making the film

  • and they turned up on the day and they were ...

  • Some of them were driving, some of them were security

  • these guys that were our camera team

  • because they just wanted to be part of the celebration

  • and the party

  • Neil Finn played a set at the Embassy Theatre

  • and a Boeing 747 flew over the red carpet

  • It was like a huge party and I suppose it was

  • Peter's gift to Wellington to say, "You're having the premiere"

  • And they earned it

  • There you are looking very very handsome

  • I know you've got followers, they call themselves the Armitage Army

  • Yes they do

  • What kind of fan mail do you get?

  • They are the most lovely, supportive fanbase I could possibly wish for

  • and they've been there for 8 years and I can't thank them enough

  • because they really do follow my work

  • and I often don't know what my schedule is

  • and I just go on the website and they tell me where I'm supposed to be

  • That's so good

  • I'll tell you, we're very happy and congratulations on such great success

  • Everyone's been waiting for this movie

  • and we've got some great news because

  • The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens in theatres December 14

  • and we got to talk to one of the major stars from the movie

  • Richard, a pleasure to meet you

  • All the best, happy holidays

  • We have to say goodbye everybody

  • See you tomorrow, thanks so much for watching

  • Go see The Hobbit December 14

Yeah!
