How did Miranda Otto prepare for her role as Eowyn The Two Towers? “I cut out every line of dialogue Eowyn spoke and looked at everything that was said about her,” the 34-year old Aussie tells Entertainment Weekly. As everyone knows, her human character falls for Viggo Mortensen‘s Aragorn in the sequel. But how do the humans compare with Hobbits? “They’re perhaps more tempted and flawed than other races.” For the role she studied dialects, horse riding and swordplay. “It was like Swiss finishing school,” she says. “The sword fighting was great fun, but I realized if I lost concentration I could lose an eye.”
