John Rhys-Davies Reprises Role In The Lord of The Rings: Return To Moria

Legendary actor John Rhys-Davies reprises the role of Gimli in The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria game - due for release this month.

You must have heard about The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria by now. If not, I encourage you to check out the opening cinematic further down the page featuring a very special guest.

Yes, in Return to Moria, John Rhys-Davies reprises his role as Lord Gimli Lockbearer – you know the chap; short and stout, there’s his handle and his spout. He also has a running bet on orc slaying with uber-blonde Legolass in The Return of the King. No? Indiana Jones…There you go, penny’s dropped.

Developed by Free Range Games and published by North Beach Games, the highly anticipated co-op survival game features the legendary actor voicing the opening cinematic and still holds the character very dear.

Actors often create characters out of love and it’s very hard, sometimes, to let them go. Certainly, Gimli is, for me, a character that I really adore, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to reprise him in a different context.
