Martin Freeman Completes Filming The Hobbit

By ON

Peter Jackson has announced that Martin Freeman has completed his shots for the next two “Hobbit” films and the filmmaker included two photos from the set.

“Tonight Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins. The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role – a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill.

We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups, and it’s wall to wall dwarves. These pick-ups have been gruelling and intense, but I’m so happy with what we’ve been shooting. These next two movies are going to be pretty great!”

We’ll get to see Freeman as Bilbo two more times, this December in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and in December of 2014 in The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
