British actor John Rhys-Davies (born 1944) played Gimli and provided the voice for Treebeard in The Lord of the Rings film series. He had originally auditioned for the role of Denethor.
- "There is an energetic ferocity in Gimli that the film needs. It's often these minor characters who really have to impart a sense of energy and dynamism to a film so that the heroes can actually take their time to respond and be thoughtful and reflective."
