Surprising Cars Your Favorite Lord of The Rings Cast Members Are Driving 

Whenever a topic discussing the greatest films of all time comes up, the last part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Return of the King, almost always comes up not only because it has won as many Academy Awards as Titanic, but also because it culminated one of the greatest trilogies that American cinema has perhaps ever seen.

Of course, the actors and actresses who appeared in the three films rose to global fame, and with that fame, they also garnered pretty impressive fortunes. Hence, while you would expect such superstars to be driving around in some of the most expensive vehicles available in the market, the reality is far from such exuberance. In fact, many of the Lord of the Rings cast members are driving very eco-friendly vehicles.

A Mini Cooper S For Elijah Wood

Our favorite hobbit Elijah Wood, who played the character of Frodo in the series, is a fan of small-sized things in real life as well, judging by the fact that the actor owns a red Mini Cooper S. But, rest assured, that is not the only car Wood owns, as reportedly he also possesses a Mitsubishi ASX as well as an Audi A4.

The Mini Cooper S is definitely a fancy car, and although it is not one you’d expect a Hollywood celebrity to drive, for Elijah Wood it is good enough.

An Audi A8 for Orlando Bloom

When we said that many of the LOTR cast members are driving eco-friendly vehicles, we were definitely not talking about Orlando Bloom as he owns an Audi A8, a very powerful car that is not the most fuel efficient one. Additionally, Bloom also owns a Porsche 912, and many heavy bikes most of which are from the Ducati brand.

The Audi A8 is a very fancy car and the 2018 model can be yours for over $83K.

A Toyota Mirai for Sean Astin

Remember Samwise Gamgee? The character was played by none other than Sean Astin, who managed to deliver a stupendous performance. When it came to choosing a car for himself, Astin opted for the Toyota Mirai which reportedly cost him over $58K. What’s interesting to note is the fact that he paid so much for this car not because it offered a lot of comfort and luxury to him, but because it is the first Hydrogen Fuel Cell car that is available for purchase in the US, which is obviously much better for the environment.

A Toyota Prius for Hugo Weaving

We have come to associate actor Hugo Weaving with advancement partially because his character Elrond in LOTR belongs to the advanced civilization of elves, and also because of his work in The Matrix trilogy in which he portrayed the character of Agent Smith who is an AI program. In real life, Weaving has once more proven that he is indeed living in the future by choosing to drive a Toyota Prius, a very eco-friendly car compared to most vehicles available in the market.

The cars of the future are moving away from fossil fuels, and the Toyota Prius is certainly one that has delivered exceptional value to its customers.

A Porsche 911 Carrera for Cate Blanchett

For Cate Blanchett, the ride of choice is a Porsche 911, Carrera. This makes sense, as she played the character of the elven queen Galadriel in the LOTR films, and the Carrera is definitely classy enough to be driven by royalty.
