    If I was a guy, definately Legolas...as it stands, well...I guess Eowyn, because she gets to fight and interact with Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Faramir...lots.

    Not really. Elves born during the third age were normally around six feet to right below that. Ancient elves like Elrond and Galadriel though would have been around 6'6 - 7". Elrond's brother was close to seven feet tall while the rest of the Numenorean's were around 6'4. After all, Aragorn was the tallest of the fellowship with Boromir coming next I believe.

    I don't really mind getting Arwen. It's just that on those test, the answers I pick never seem like the ones that would go with her. But I mean, hey, I'd get to live a couple thousand years and then marry Aragorn. Who could complain about that? :D

    I was really shocked that time I got Saruman. Not sure what teh deal was there...

    Didn't even think of Eomer, I voted for Aragorn.

    If I had to do it again I might choose Eomer or Faramir though. They are valiant and don't have that inner battle thing going on the Aragorn does in the movie.

    The riders of Rohan are awesome.

    I'd like to have been Gandalf, though those tests always tell me I'm Boromir. But Sean Bean did such an excellent job as Boromir and I like the character so much I'm glad he got the part and not me :D . But I think I'm more like Eomer or Faramir, though I'd rather be Faramir because of several days alone with Eowyn and their eventual wedding. Miranda Otto, I love you.

    OK, I would be Rosie, Sams future wife!
    I get to dance with Samwise Gamgee & have a lot of fun.
    I know it's not a big part , but I am a huge Sean Astin fan !


    Bet you didn't think someone would pick her...

    There are more girls than Arowen and Eowyn....
    Then again.... If I was to be someone who got to use a sword then Arowen is on the top of my list she gets the coolest sword!

    Galadriel! How could you forget?

    That would be a fun one to play too. I couldn't play an elf though. I'm only 5"4. :( Hehe, I couldn't play Eowyn either. I don't have blonde hair.

    I would no doubt in my mind be Aragorn, because I like the ranger him more than any other character, and think, this movie, to be apart of it would be the best thing in a lifetime, now that I saw what those people got to go through, my life sucks

    I'd want to play Eowyn. However I really don't want to marry movie Faramir so I choose Galadriel (at least until TTT:EE comes out and fixes Faramir).
