Trivia that mentions this person:
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King [2003]
  • The last shot of principal photography was when the newly-crowned Aragorn bows to the four Hobbits. Although Viggo Mortensen did not need to be on set for that day, he nevertheless insisted on attending. He didn't have a crown (it wasn't necessary - he wasn't being filmed) so he fashioned one out of paper. With each successive take, the crown was becoming more ornate and sillier as crew members kept decorating it, so the four actors playing the Hobbits often had difficulty suppressing their giggles.
    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Extended Edition [2004]
  • While filming the trilogy, Viggo Mortensen got so into character that during a conversation, Peter Jackson referred to him as "Aragorn" for over half an hour without Mortensen's realizing it.
    The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers [2002]
  • Elijah Wood's sister is one of the refugees in Helms Deep, as is [?] Henry Mortensen, Viggo Mortensen's son. Philippa Boyens' son [?] Callum Boyens is the boy who gives Aragorn his sword, but that isn't his voice in the final cut. Callum's voice had changed by the time it came to do the looping, so a different voice was cast.
    Batman Begins [2005]
  • Viggo Mortensen turned down Liam Neeson's role. [?] Daniel Day-Lewis was also approached.
    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 [2017]
