Like many Lord of the Rings fans, Canadian actor, playwright and self-proclaimed ‘professional geek’, Charles Ross fell in love with Tolkein’s trilogy at an early age. When it was announced that Peter Jackson would adapt the stories for film, he was again among many who felt excitement and worry about the film (would he screw it up? would someone stupid play Gandalf?) Thankfully no, and no.

After the success of his One Man Star Wars Trilogy, people asked him what he would tackle next. He didn’t even blink.
