Esteemed actor John Rhys-Davies will lend his talents to Free Range Games and North Beach Games’ The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria as the beloved Dwarf Lord Gimli Lockbearer.
According to John Rhys-Davies:
“It’s always fun to come back and think of the ‘what-ifs’, and the chance to work on this game is an exploration of one of the what-ifs, isn’t it? 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.”John Rhys-Davies
