NewsWire: Blanchett Talks 'Rings' - Cinescape
Cate Blanchett - Galadriel
Cinescape - April 14, 2000
Cate Blanchett is talking, briefly, about the Lord of the Rings project. While talking to frequent Cinescape contributor Cindy Pearlman for her syndicated column, Blanchett talked about Tolkien's original books, saying, "[Author] J.R.R. Tolkien created a whole language. He created a world within a world. My god, that man. He created the Middle Earth. I think Lord of the Rings will be a historic movie."
Blanchett is ready to go as she says, "I can't wait until I start filming in June… I'm really excited to work with director Peter Jackson. He has one of the most out-there imaginations of any director around." Still, Blanchett admits that she doesn't quite know what to expect, saying, "I don't even know what I will look like in the movie."
