Filming

'I tend to bring things to films. I find things that are useful for a movie and I usually end up getting along well with the prop man, or the designer. In this film, for example, there are the books that Chester finds in the market... I brought those books.'

You chipped your tooth filming Lord Of The Rings and superglued it back on. What's the most serious injury you've ever sustained on a film set?

I broke my foot on that movie too. I broke a finger on this one though. You know the free-for-all in the square in the little town? It happened then. That was annoying for the rest of the shoot because it happened to be my ring finger and as my character happens to be married they had to cut the ring and just hold it in place. I broke the knuckle and they couldn't get the ring past it otherwise, unfortunately.
