I looked through all the newspaper web pages for a digital of this article but zip-o so guess this shot will have to do.
Glad to have been some help, oh, VERY sunny, clear, mild temps and no wind at Poolburn today.
While I tend to think the paper managed to snap a pic of the back of the set, it still lets us have a good look at what it may be. Any ideas?

I liked it a lot, I must say! Even though he barely mentioned Gandalf, he reinforced my impression that the role has gone to a person who is a most intelligent, civilised, and thoughtful human being as well as an inspiring actor.

Craig Parker is 'innately lazy'
10/05/00, 9:29 pm EST - Xoanon
"Craig Parker (Haldir) gets the spotlight on him in this month's issue of Metro, one of Auckland's leading glossy mags for people with spare brain cells. Great pictures of the ex-Shortland St. actor who's headed for world fame with the role of Haldir in 'The Lord of the Rings.' We've heard rumours that the role is expanded a bit from what Tolkien wrote.
Metro's article only mentions LOTR in passing, but gives us an idea of the range of Parker's talent. As well as working in LOTR, he's doing a part in a splatter movie called 'No One Can Hear You' and he's appearing in a stage play about Oscar Wilde's later years called 'The Judas Kiss.' His comment on the acting life:
"Drinking coffee is kinda my major hobby....the great benefit of being an actor is you have all this spare time. My ideal is just hanging out with people - I think I'm innately lazy"

Controversy at TORN
10/02/00, 11:29 pm EST - Quickbeam
My new Out on a Limb feature, "The 2000 Vote: Gandalf or Saruman," had only one modest goal: to blast some fresh air into the way we look at the election process. It has since caused a firestorm of angry readers demanding my head on a plate. Love it or hate it, come see what all the fuss is about over in Green Books.
This piece does not indicate the political leanings of TheOneRing.net, which has its roots in Canada and New Zealand and couldn't care less about American politicking.
