Wasn't Elijah adorable on Leno? The laundry!! The cold cure!! But oh the pain of this one-sided relationship - I want to discuss things with him. For instance, when he was talking about eating Croque Monsieur in Paris - I wanted to ask him if he knew that if he had Croque Madame instead he'd get the same thing with an egg on top!! And when he said he wished he could grow a full beard I wanted to plead with him not to hide the lovely chin cleft any more than he does already. And when he was talking about not taking antibiotics, only natural remedies, I wanted to ask why, when he's concerned about such things, he's ok with tobacco. On second thoughts, perhaps its just as well I couldn't ask him that last one - may not have gone down too well!!

I have a confession to make ... anyone who knows me will be aware how completely and utterly passionate I am about Frodo and yet I have never celebrated Froday with a Frodo picspam!! Isn't that terrible? My excuse is that I usually work on Froday so just don't have the time. Sadly, today is no exception but I do have time to just post a random FroMo (Frodo Moment)or rather, in this case, Frolijah moment:

“Arena: Renowned luvvy Sir Ian McKellen plays Gandalf. Is he very thespian? Because we’ve read his website and he tends to slip into Olde English.
Elijah: He does – but he’s very intelligent and very well read and very eloquent and he always has beautiful ways of saying things. I’ve seen interviews and he forms these beautiful lyrical quotes about the experience. You can have an absolutely normal conversation with him but he’s also really funny and VERY flirtatious.
Arena: So did he try it on with you?
Elijah: Oh, he’s flirtatious with everyone. It’s wonderful, it’s very alive…”


I have begun the massive tidy-up of all things LOTR/Elijah - I'm hoping this will help me to post here more efficiently and more frequently in future:)

You're welcome:) The pic is a screen cap from one of the FOTR documentaries, can't remember if its on the dvd or not. The Arena article was round about the time FOTR was released.

I love this Leno interview so much! You can see how an adorably unashamed dork/geek he is with the laundry and the medicine. Then he can be talking about that 24 hour travel challenge just like the eager 24 year old he is. Then he totally doted on the little old actor fellow and was so solicituous and kind to him.

Jay almost unknowingly seemed to catch on to that essence of Elijah that seems so very ancient and wise when he jokingly said.."How old are you... 75?"

Elijah WOULD be just as comfortable sitting with a bunch of elderly folk talking about medicines and the simple joys of doing laundry as he is with the biggest names in the entertainment industry or his own music loving buddies.

He is truly one of a kind. I honestly don't know anyone else like him.

Oh! And the fact that he LOVED the big band swing dancing in the club they went to! That he just had to dance to it! I love that stuff too and that he really enjoys it just thrilled me no end! I'll dance to big band music with him any day!

That is so very true. And I just love to hear him talk about mundane, everyday things like laundry. I think you're right, he's equally at home talking to kids, elderly people, big names, fans, waiters, shop assistants - anyone. He just seems to love his fellow human beings :)

I know what you mean about wanting to *talk* with him!

I sooo want to offer to build him some lovely little shelves for his collections of CDs and action figures. And shadow boxes for his scraps of mementos from his trips. It would be such a *pleasure* to do for him, even if I never saw him throughout. But there's no way to even offer.

And the naturopathy! My opinon of Debbie just keeps going up!

Give me a moment while I drool over your icon ... ok, yes, its just so frustrating - there is so much I would love to talk with him about & I know I'll never get the chance. And to be able to do something for him like that - I know exactly how you feel:)

And I won't say that I'm actually looking forward to my next cold - but I know exactly what I'll be taking when I do get one!!

When I did my write up about seeing him at Jay Leno, that's why I called it "Sweet Torture". God, I just wanted to be able to go sit with him and talk! And touch! Oh yes I did. : ) I love the things he talks about.

The quote from Elijah about Ian was wonderful! I love the picture too. I'd never read or seen either. Thanks for sharing.

Prim, you should find the moment that screencap came from -- it's on the FOTR EE extras. Sir Ian the Flirt is actually stroking his finger back and forth across Elijah's palm! :-)

That narrows it down, but there are a lot of "extras" on the DVD! I'll see if I can find it.

I can't really blame him for wanting to do that. I'd like to do the same. : )

Sorry sweetie -- I should have realized that! I actually have that DVD right now -- my brother lent it to me -- let me check for you.

Oh, I'd like to stroke my finger on many, many, many body parts of Elijah's...

wisteria_way, who has commented above, has very kindly posted a link to the show on her LJ which I believe still works. Just scroll down to October 6th :)

I've tried in vain to find that issue of Arena on ebay, but have had no luck, so thanks so much for this.

I don't think I have the actual mag - I just downloaded the article when it was around - back in the days when FOTR was just being released. Hopefully I will come across it during The Big Tidy-UP and I can then post the rest of the article. This paticular quote I had extracted for a 'project' I'm working on :)

What one-sided relationship?

The one-sided relationship that all fans inevitably have with the object of their affection. I have adored Lij for almost 4 years but, apart from a few hurried words at various cons, know I will never be more than a face in the crowd.

Oh, I love that screencap -- it was such a cute moment!

Elijah was beyond adorable on Leno. Sweet, down-to-earth, humble, honest, good-natured... just an exceptional human being. No wonder his fans adore him so.
