What The Cast Of The Lord Of The Rings Looks Like Now


Before playing Gimli, the ax-wielding dwarf who refuses to be tossed (except when there’s no other choice) in “The Lord of the Rings” films, John Rhys-Davies was probably best known as Sallah, the affable Arab in the Indiana Jones films. Since “The Lord of the Rings,” however, Rhys-Davies has appeared in dozens of films, video games, and TV series, including both live-action and voiceover roles.

Prior to “The Lord of the Rings,” Rhys-Davies was already a highly accomplished television actor, with roles in series such as “The Untouchables,” “Sliders,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “The Living Daylights.” The actor also lent his voice to numerous video games and animated series, such as “Justice League” and “Gargoyles.” He continued to pursue all types of acting after “The Lord of the Rings,” reprising his role as Gimli (or at least, Gimli’s voice) for the “The Lord of the Rings” video games and making appearances on dozens of shows, including “Psych,” “The Shannara Chronicles,” and “Wizards.” Rhys-Davies has also regularly appeared in films, although none as big as “The Lord of the Rings.”

Most recently, the definitely-not-dwarfish actor — standing at a slightly-above-average 6 feet 1 inch — has worked on a number of smaller films, including “Kingslayer” and “Bad Cupid,” and currently has many projects in various stages of production, including a number of features and the video game “Squadron 42.”
