#AtoZChallenge: Pippin

Peregrin ‘Pippin’ Took was a friend of Frodo’s. Pippin is one of my favorite hobbits. He went on the quest with Frodo without knowing where they were going at first. He was a lovable character who could find trouble no matter where he was. When Pippin returned to the shire he was known for going on the quest but he is also known for being one of the captains who led the Shire-Folk in a revolt against the followers of Saruman who had taken over the Shire.

Billy Boyd is one of my favorite actors and singers. One of my favorite scenes is when Pippin is singing for Denethor while Faramir rides into battle against Orcs. It was also used in the teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. The Last Goodbye is one of my favorite songs. Enjoy the videos. πŸ™‚

Look forward to reading your comments. πŸ™‚

    He was one of my favorites too. His light-heartened way kept the company’s spirits up. But he was always the klutz and trouble maker too.

      I totally agree. I loved that about him. He was just being himself. πŸ™‚

    Pippin is one of my favourite characters, with such an endearing quality to him – and Billy Boyd – love him (like you, some of that love is on account of his beautiful voice).

    I love that song. It’s the last part of the ‘Minas Tirith’ piece of the soundtrack, so it comes up on my iPod from time to time. I remember hearing Billy say how nervous he was about singing it, all alone, when they were filming it. Billy was great in Master and Commander, as well. I wish they’d done a sequel to that – too late now, though 😦

      I love both of the songs. He was great. I totally understand why he would feel nervous singing it, all alone, while filming it.
