Biography: There are few actors on The Lord of the Rings Trilogy project that have worked more closely with Peter Jackson than Jed Brophy. A well-established actor from New Zealand who is also an extremely capable horse rider, Brophy began his professional acting career playing the character of Dr. Jack Galloway on soap Shortland Street before appearing in Peter Jackson's comedy-horror Braindead. Shortly after Brophy would feature in another Peter Jackson film, this time the critically-acclaimed Heavenly Creatures.

Seven years later, he would appear once again as several parts in The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King. Jed Brophy is currently working on adapting a screenplay based on a book and spending time with his two children and the Rohan horse he purchased after riding it in The Return of the King.

"The LOTR trilogy has been a fantastic odyssey so far. I was lucky enough to work as one of the Black Riders in the first movie as I used to train horses in my youth, and have kept working with the horse department as well as acting." - Dead-Alive.com
"This second part enabled me to work with Viggo Mortenson, my most memorable experience. He's the bomb." - Dead-Alive.com
(on Christopher Lee) "Magnificent...one of the last of the true Gentlemen actors." - Dead-Alive.com
