1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 7 Feb 2011
This review is from: There And Back Again: An Actor's Tale: An Actor's Tale - A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Lord of the Rings (Paperback)
I loved Sean Astin's performance in The Lord of the Rings and was really looking forward to reading this book but I should have read other peoples reviews before ordering it. He does not come over well at all and seems to have serious confidence issues which are endlessly repeated and it doesn't make for a good read. I learnt nothing about the making of the films that I didn't already know and ended up thinking Mr Astin is a whinger. Being cast in one of the biggest films of all time in a starring role was not enough for him. He seemed to think he should have had input on the directing of the film as well and constantly worried that Peter Jackson might not be getting it right. I am amazed his agent or whoever let him publish this as it doesn't paint him in a good light at all.
