Trivia that mentions this person:
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King [2003]
  • For the moment where Eowyn comforts the dying king Theoden, Miranda Otto had to play most of the scene without her co-star as Bernard Hill had already completed filming all his scenes and had been given a farewell party. Fortunately, when the film-makers realized they wanted to do a little more with the scene, they were able to call on Hill - who was holidaying on New Zealand's South Island - to come back for one more day of filming.

  • Bernard Hill cracked his sternum while riding his horse.
  • Between takes, Brad Dourif stayed in character by continuing to speak with an English accent until all his footage had been completed. This was so convincing that, at the end, when he spoke with his normal voice again, Bernard Hill thought that his English accent was real and that his American accent must be fake.
  • Bernard Hill was originally considered for the role of Gandalf.
    The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Extended Edition [2004]
  • Theoden touching the spears of his soldiers before they charge into battle was Bernard Hill's idea.
