Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1While I'd like to make movies that are uplifting, there's always that part of you that goes, 'I want to play the evil guy because it's not me.' So anything that is not me is a challenge, and if I rise to the challenge, then I've kind of proved myself.
2I never did a convention before I did 'The Hobbit.'
3I didn't realize Boston was so easy to get around. In my head, I imagined Boston being this really sprawling city.
4To be honest, I really enjoy the chance to meet the fans because I've found with 'The Hobbit,' the fans are all really lovely and enthusiastic.
5Living in New Zealand, that's something that you'd like to do as an actor, but very rarely do you get an opportunity to get such a good springboard as 'The Hobbit' to help you get international work.
