Cate Blanchett on Reprising the Role of Galadriel

43-year-old Cate Blanchett said she “couldn’t stop laughing” when she put her Elf ears back on in order to reprise the role of Galadriel in ‘The Hobbit’ movies, noting that the experience was “as enjoyable” as shooting ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy.

"I'm more mature as an actress; that's what made me want to play her again,” she said. “Peter called me and thought I might not accept the role. I told him, 'Are you kidding me? Of course I will!'

"Galadriel is a special character to me, mythic and fascinating. It was as enjoyable to shoot as 'Lord of the Rings'. When I wore the elf ears again, I had this wonderful feeling of deja vu.

"I couldn't stop laughing. I was very young when I played Galadriel. I hope to have evolved, to be a better actress, person and mother."

She even joked that director Peter Jackson finds her much “easier to work with” now compared to ten years ago when ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy was being filmed.

“Professionally I think I'm much more flexible now, and easier to work with,” she told the Spanish website Milenio. “I know Peter thinks so! Come Christmas the audience will be able to decide for themselves.”

  1. Cate Blanchett is definately perfect as Galadriel! I really love her looks and her way of acting! Even though she wasn't in the books, I kind of like Peter Jackson for bringing her back to Middle-earth. I can't wait to see her again!
