I'm incredibly passionate about my life, I'm absolutely unable to hide any emotion. If I wrote a book, I’d have to call it ‘P is for Passion’. I don’t go in for anything halfway. My feelings about things are instant, on the spot. And my heart is always, always on my sleeve.
Would you say that you are a badass in real life? You always take a little bit from a character after you’ve played it. A lot of the research that I did finding Thranduil was just going to the woods and going on long hikes. I went on a bunch of big, long hikes in New Zealand. I’m a pretty gentle person, so I don’t really have much of a thing of being a badass!
