From Middle-earth to the far reaches of the Star Wars galaxy, passing through the jungles of Jurassic Park, he never refuses a small trip to the greatest sagas of cinema. Child of the 90s, creator of the programs Give Me Five and Big Fan Theory, he has been writing for AlloCiné since 2010.

When Dominic Monaghan, interpreter of the hobbit Merry in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, played Raphaël Mezrahi in front of his sidekick Elijah Wood …

In 2003, in full promotion of Return of the King (third and last installment of the saga), while the interpreter of Frodo answered questions from journalists in New York, his teammate actually had the idea to trap him by posing as a German interviewer with singular behavior.

More and more disturbed by the subjects approached by the “journalist” (electro music, wigs or even Flipper the dolphin), the interpreter of Frodo ended up cracking and leaving in an uncontrollable laughter, tenfold when he discovered that this strange German journalist was none other than his comedian friend.

The video, particularly gratifying for any Lord of the Rings fan, was finally added to the film’s bonuses, testifying to the good humor that was undoubtedly to reign between all the actors on the set of the famous trilogy.
