"At one stage Elrond was actually gonna visit Lothlórien and talk directly to Galadriel. But once it was decided that Arwen would not go to Lothlórien and Helm’s Deep, that scene had to be reworked."

Today in Middle-Earth: King Elessar finds the sapling of the white tree (June 25th,3019 T.A.). 

'The Tree in the Court of the Fountain is still withered and barren. When shall I see a sign that it will ever be otherwise?’

‘Turn your face from the green world, and look where all seems barren and cold!’ said Gandalf.

Then Aragorn turned, and there was a stony slope behind him running down from the skirts of the snow; and as he looked he was aware that alone there in the waste a growing thing stood. And he climbed to it, and saw that out of the very edge of the snow there sprang a sapling tree no more than three foot high. Already it had put forth young leaves long and shapely, dark above and silver beneath, and upon its slender crown it bore one small cluster of flowers whose white petals shone like the sunlit snow.

"I’d done a radio play with Miranda about 10 years before – this was in the days when they actually did radio plays in Australia – but there was one particular sequence where we had to have sex in a bath and they actually had a bath in the studio with the microphones in the bath and the two of us standing in the bath, pretending to have sex, but Miranda [chuckles]…Miranda and I just couldn’t contain ourselves and laughed for a little too long for the director who got rather annoyed with us both. But after that, this was the next time that I saw Miranda: in the Houses of Healing, on my very first day on Lord of the Rings.”

All that is gold does not glitter.
Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not wither.
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken.
A light from the shadows shall spring.
Renewed shall be blade that was broken.
The crownless again shall be king.
