I am spending the weekend watching all the Extended Editions again as a birthday treat.

At the end of Two Towers I was idly watching the fan names at the end of the credits to see if WGW had included Citizens of Minas Tirith on this film as well as the first, as I couldn't remember. (He had; thank you again, sir!)

Now I do find those names quite difficult to read, but I was sure the name Cate Blanchette caught my eye. A little further on, there was Billy Boyd. We also spotted Christopher Lee, Ian McKellan, Dominic Monaghan and Elijah Wood.

How sweet that they are also fans of the films they appeared in! I have never noticed this before, nor have I heard anyone refer to it. Am I slow to catch up, or have I made a discovery?

Now, which sad soul is going to sit down and pick out any more?

Sad soul here! *raise hand*

I just checked Return of the King. A few surprised me by not being there (Aragorn, Legolas, Theoden, Grima, Gollum, Eowyn, Eomer, etc...) but I did see the following:
Sean Astin
Cate Blanchett
Billy Boyd
John Howe
Peter Jackson
Alan Lee
Christopher Lee
Ian McKellan
Citizens of Minas Tirith (*salutes our glorious leader*)
Dominic Monaghan
John Rhys-Davies
Brian Sibley
Elijah Wood

I remember noticing the names of some cast members sprinkled throughout the credits years ago, back when I used to watch the EEs a quite unhealthy number of times. []

I always thought it was pretty neat that they did that. And of course it was awesome of our fair Steward to join the club on behalf of all of MT. I know he's not the biggest fan of the movies, but I like that he did that.

It doesn't surprise me at all that Prince Viggo is missing from that list; clearly he didn't know a thing about Aragorn, and didn't want to.
But it's for the best I assume, if he did know then he'd have a mental breakdown from the conflict.

I don't remember ever knowing that the actors were in the list. Interesting catch!

Oh, here's the link to the 'main' thread about it, with a few more links therein. Almost 10 years ago. Man, time flies...

It really does, Master Steward. Ten years and I still get all bouncy when I see the Citizens on the credits. []
