Later reports:

Hobbit star Cate Blanchett was “desperate” to play a dwarf in Peter Jackson films.

The 45-year-old actress – who plays Lady Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies – has expressed her disappointment at not being given the opportunity to dress up as one of the hairy mythical creatures.

According to ET Canada, she said: “I was so desperate to play a dwarf. The facial hair. You go into the wig room. Oh my god. The beard.”


Speaking at Comic-Con the 37-year-old actor – who appears in all three LOTR films and two of three Hobbit films – explained: “It’s a truly passionate event, and I feel very fortunate that I’m getting to see it on the last installment of a journey that’s been so special for me.”
