This week’s interview is with Craig Parker, who played Haldir the elf in The Lord of the Rings. Now a star of the TV series Reign, I chatted to him about his early career, what science fiction and fantasy books he was into growing up, and how the Lord of the Rings films changed not only his own life, but New Zealand itself. He’s a ridiculous gentleman with cool hair.

Filmed at Liverpool Comic Con.
