It was a chilly evening on North Island of New Zealand. While I was on set for the upcoming Hobbiton movie, I took the above photo of Bilbo’s home. The day was falling away — and the warm lights turned on. I was transfixed. I’d spent the entire day there, starting at 5 a.m., running late into the night and beyond. We experienced a few little rainstorms all that day, and they dropped fresh, glowing rain all over the 40-plus Hobbit hole homes the production team built there. I spent some time inside Bilbo’s hole at Bag End during those times. I watched the rain fall across Hobbiton from Bilbo’s.
