'Hobbit' fans treated to Q&A session with the actors at Armageddon

UPI News Service, 06/03/2013 

Teenage "Hobbit" aficionados enjoyed seeing actors from the movie and asking them questions at the Armageddon Expo in New Zealand, officials said.

Thirteen actors from "The Hobbit," with the exception of Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbo, appeared Sunday before a crowd of about 500 fans at the science-fiction and fantasy convention in Wellington, Wellington's The Dominion Post reported.

"Oh, they're so cute!" one teen said.

Questions asked included whether any cast member had stolen anything from the set, which actor was most like the character he played and who was the best dancer, The Dominion Post reported.

Mark Hadlow, who played a dwarf in the movie, said director Peter Jackson had allowed them to take some of the costumes and weapons they wore in the film.

Stephen Hunter, who played Bombur, said each actor had some personality traits in common with his character, adding the best dancer was Irishman Aiden Turner, a trained ballroom dancer.

Victoria University film and theater student Lauren Wilson, 21, rushed up to the stage to hug each actor in turn after they sang her "Happy Birthday."

Wellington police said they received calls from people worried about convention attendees walking the streets with fake weapons, and warned fans to think about their costumes.

"It just causes all sorts of issues for us, it is of concern that people are doing that sort of stuff. All that we're asking for is some common sense," Wellington police acting Senior Sgt. Andrzej Kowalczyk said.
