Happy New Year my love Richard! that 2012 will be one of the best years of your life! and Happy New Year to everyone in the universe of RA! Besos from Argentina. Beth
Wow, Have finally had a chance to sit down and read your message! What a crazy time of year, My youngest son's birthday, Christmas Eve, Christmas and my Birthday! Finally get a chance to sit down and see what else is going on in the world!
I think that you are truly a wonderful caring person. I don't think there are too many people that would sit down and write a message to their fans after virtually stepping of your flight from New Zealand! Thank you as one of your fans it does mean a great deal to us too!
I think you deserve to get of the treadmill and put the dumb bells down for some Christmas Turkey. I too have given myself time off from the Hiking and jogging through our local National park to enjoy the festive foods. Will be getting back into it tomorrow though! LOL!
My youngest son and I are so looking forward to seeing the Hobbit next year. We loved The lord of the rings too! I must admit I loved reading the books as a teenager. Keep up the great work you are an amazingly talented actor.
We are planning a trip to New Zealand next year, as it is somewhere my mum has always wanted to travel through! Really looking forward to it as so many people comment on what an amazing and beautiful place it is.
I hope that you have had a wonderful festive season with your family and friends and that you have an amazing 2012 filled with Love, Happiness and Health!
Richard, you are the most genuine person who seems so real and down to earth, and humble. Thank you for caring enough about your fans to take the time to write a message. I can't wait to see you in the Hobbit in 2012. Get some rest and have some FUN!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our "little community of friends" and to Mr A of course !!!
Thank you Ali for this great site and thank you Richard for taking your time to write us this nice letter for Christmas !
He is always as cute inside as he is outside, and I can't wait to see His Thorin and hearing again his amazing voice... another gift for the year to come !!!
Cheers ! Joane
Thank you, Ali, for posting Richard's lovely Christmas letter. It's always so generous of him to take the time to do that. Happy Christmas, Richard!
Ali, I wanted to wish you and everyone who comes to this fun and lovely site a happy holiday. We all know that this the best RA site online! So much to look forward to in the New Year! xx
Thanks Emma, Merry Christmas to you!
I've just read Richard's Christmas message with a big smile on my face! What an absolutely darling man!
Merry Christmas to all here!!
He must really be the most loveable man on (Middle) Earth. A peaceful Christmas and a bright New Year to you too, dear RA!
I'm so delighted we received a new christmas message! It's one of my most welcome Christmas presents and it definitely brightens this extremely sulky and grey day over here in Bavaria....Thank you Richard!
Merry Christmas to you Ali and thanks a million for your ongoing hard work to keep us so well supplied and updated. I love it.
Thanks Linda. Happy Christmas!
Just read Richard's Christmas message at RAonline. The man is just--wonderful. Every time I think I couldn't love him more . . . Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes for a happy, healthy, prosperous new year.
Merry Christmas Angie!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone and to Richard of course. Thanks Ali for all your hard work in keeping us all up to date with whats happening.
Cheers Michele Australia
Merry Christmas Michele!
Just listened to the song on YouTube and RA sounds amazing. Thanks Ali for all the updates. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Dear Ali, this is an unofficial request, but could we have more PODs of Thorin in the following days?
Sure, will do.
Ali, many thanks for the wonderful new screencaps of our beautiful man...er, dwarf!
I think I died and woke me up in heaven the sweet song of an angel! oh god! how beautiful are you Richard! Just perfect. Happy Cristmas for everyone! Beth Argentina
Ali, many thanks fot the links. I didn't think Richard's voice could be any more beautiful - but it is, when he sings! I was so afraid PJ would cut out the songs, as he did in "LotR" - but he didn't, and this trailer looks (and sounds) very promising. I am sure we will have a very merry Christmas and a very good 2012, especially its end, but nevertheless, Ali and and all who read this, please accept my best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. And I hope 2012 will be wonderful for Richard.
I'm french and I've discovered Richard for one year. Since, I'm totally captivated by this amazing talented gorgeous actor. I knew he had played in musical but now I discover him singing with his beautiful voice !!! Is there something this man cannot do ? I'm very impressed...and I'm not a teenager (but I feel like !)...This year will be very long since the discovering of the movie...Congratulations for your site I visit every day. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
(Sorry for my faults).
Thanks for your message and Merry Christmas to you too Véronique.
Just watched the trailer for the Hobbit and well, just wow! I’m very impressed. Richard looks very authoritative and regal as Thorin Oakenshield and as for the singing; that was a total surprise! The song the Dwarves are singing was melodious and strangely haunting.
Martin Freeman looks great as Bilbo. All the Dwarves do too and it’s great to see Gandalf on screen again.
The scenery, the costumes, the “atmosphere” of the film, it’s all just beyond my expectations and I can’t wait to see it on the big screen.
Thanks for all the links and the screencaps from the trailer, Ali.
I've lost count of how many times I've watched the trailer since it premiered online last night! It's just so lovely, all the way around. And the singing...oh my! Like I mentioned on bcc's site, I wish Richard looked at this website so that he knew how happy and proud of him we are!
Thank you, Ali for all those lovely screencaps. So many to choose from. Christmas has come early! xx
I just watched the Hobbit trailer, and what a gift that will be for us next Christmas. And it will be a very special wedding anniversary present for me too. Richard looks wonderful, and how great to hear that marvellous voice, singing and speaking. Have put the date into my diary already and will be counting down the days. Then what will 'our' Richard do next? I long for a lovely romantic movie from here, costume drama or whatever, but something for us ladies. Happy Christmas all, and thanks to all that keep this site going.
Oh wow, sigh, swoon. Christmas just can't go wrong now!
Fabulous trailer! Great to see that Richard has such a prominent part in it all. And what a part it is.
When is the CD coming out?
