Bret McKenzie Talks About Figwit and Lindir

Bret McKenzie, who unofficially played “Figwit” the Elf in The Lord of the Rings, spoke with ComingSoon.netabout his role as Lindir in The Hobbit.
“I’ve got a cameo as an elf. Or another cameo. My character is called Lindir. I hang out with Elrond… I’ve got a few lines in Elvish.”
In answer to the question about whether Figwit and Lindir are one and the same, here’s what Bret had to say:
“You’ll probably see, I’ve got slightly different ears. That’s how I differentiate my elf characters. The big difference for this character is that he’s in 3D. He’s a character that’s a lot more three dimensional.” promises the full interview will be available soon.
Thanks to Ringer spy Daniel J. for the heads-up.
