20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of Lord of the Rings
Ian Holm Once Played Frodo
Fans of Peter Jackson’s trilogy will likely know Ian Holm as the lovely older man who plays Bilbo Baggins. What they may not realize is that Ian also played Frodo in his youth. In the 1980s, the BBC mounted a radio adaptation of the series that was actually quite good.
Ian played Frodo in that play, which contained 26 episodes that each ran about 30 minutes. If the massive three-hour movies don’t offer you enough Tolkien, you can always dive into that radio series. It was incredibly faithful to the books and made only the smallest of changes to the story.
