Billy Boyd's Quotes

  • To play one of the main characters in it, it's not the kind of thing you don't do. Oh, I'd rather not play Pippin in Lord of the Rings..., In fact, what else would you rather do, you know? I can't actually think of another job that I'd rather do.
  • Hobbits are a lot like Scots. It's all about nature and enjoying their land, which is a very Scottish thing.
  • "I realised that it was just about Pippin and some other people!" After reading 'Lord of the Rings' for the first time.
  • On being asked if he could relate to his character, Pippin: "Strangely enough, the first time I tried to read the book I was on holiday in Florida. I dropped it in the pool my first day there. If that's not a Pippin thing to do, I don't know what is."
  • [on collaborating with Dominic Monaghan on a script:] I don't really think I'm a good writer. I think I'm too lazy to be a writer. There's always a Playstation or a movie or something to pull me away. Dom's better at writing and being that kind of guy. When I was filming in Mexico, we did a lot of it on tape and then Dom would write it later. Now we're working with a writer called David Gregg to finish it off and polish it up a bit, I guess. It's looking really good, and there are a lot of people interested in making it, and that's even better. So, hopefully, I'd love to work with Dom again and do a couple of different characters. I think it could be fun if we manage to keep a career going, to have this kind of two actors working together, but always playing different parts. It would be fun, I think. [December 11, 2003]
