Her first experience on a film set was in Egypt, in a Arabic boxing film, because she was broke and needed money.

Movie Notes

Cast in the role of Galadriel


"I'm really looking foreward to it, because it's not a territory I've ever stepped into before technically." - Vogue Magazine
"I basically did it so I could have the ears. They were so sweet, because they actually made little bronze castings of my ears. I loved all of that stuff". - DarkHorizons.com
(talking about Galadriel) "She's handing on the torch to Men, to humankind. I think in a lot of ways she's challenging the viewers to say, 'What are you gonna do with Middle-earth? What are you gonna do with Middle-earth?'" - lordoftherings.net featurette
