Graham McTavish Hobbit
An interesting story about Graham McTavish and his character of Dwalin is that he introduced something in the movie that was not initially something that Tolkien thought. In fact, the courageous dwarf that Graham played has two axes that he carries with him. But Graham saw it fit to give these axes names. So he remembered Emily Bronte and the two hounds that she had. She was a tiny woman and the dogs were enormous, so she named them Grasper and Keeper. Graham proposed this idea to Peter Jackson, the director of the movie, and he found it really cool. They immediately added this to the plot and engraved Dwalin’s axes with their newly acquired names.
