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."
