About Age

Experience, Traveling

There's an innocence to Frodo and yet a kind of worldliness as well, but there's so much that Frodo hasn't experienced, being a hobbit in the Shire. He's kind of closed off to the outside world and, you know, for me going to New Zealand for that length of time was like Frodo traveling throughout Middle-earth, essentially on his own, without his family, and I think there are parallels there for me, and I think at that age—you know, I was eighteen at the time. It was particularly poignant at the time of my life to kind of leave home and travel and basically give way to this experience, which was very much what Frodo had to do. So, no, I think that that’s a relative point.
