First glimpse of Newbury actor as 'Ori'
Adam Brown is playing the role of Ori in the film adaptation of JRR Tolkien's novel The Hobbit
THE first images have been released of Newbury actor Adam Brown in his role as Ori in the forthcoming film adaptation of JRR Tolkien's novel The Hobbit, called The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The pictures show Brown in full costume as the dwarf character who will accompany Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, on his quest to the Lonely Mountain.
Presumably to protect himself against the harsh landscape of Middle Earth, Adam Brown is dressed in a thick hooded cloak and an oversized belt.
As Ori he is sealed by make-up, giving him ruddy features, interesting facial hair, and a shorter stance than the elves and wizards he will be starring alongside.
Adam Brown, who is best known in West Berkshire as one third of the comedy partnership Plested and Brown, the third member being writer and director Amanda Wilsher, is currently in Newbury whilst on a break from filming.
He recently attended Clare Plested's wedding in Las Vegas and was at the opening night of her new show, Vegas, Jesus and Me at New Greenham Arts last week.
Adam Brown declined to comment on his experiences on set in New Zealand.

The Hobbit films, which will also include The Hobbit: There and Back Again, are being filmed back to back.
