Orlando's Acceptance Speech for his Empire Award for 'Best Debut' Feb. 5, 2002
"This is surreal. Oh my word, thank you
so much. It's crazy because I got an opportunity out of drama school to go and
work on The Lord of the Rings that doesn't come round very often and I've been
forever grateful to the hundreds and thousands of people who felt that they
wanted to make The Lord of the Rings - Peter Jackson, Frances Walsh his writing
partner, for seeing some pointy-eared quality in me, my agent Fiona and my
family and friends who I just love and the readers of Empire - because I think I
love you too now."
