"It's been good to get home and spend time with my family, though now I'm off to New Zealand for months to film The Lord of the Rings with Ian Holm, Sean Bean and Ian McKellan.
I play Theoden, King of Rohan, an all-action, middle-aged hero! I'll be there most of the year...
There are three films in all, although I'm only in two... and I hope my wife and our son Gabriel, who is four and a half, will be joining me.
