Ori (Raver)

Adam Brown as Ori

Dwarf of Thorin & Company. Ori was of the line of Durin and was a remote kinsman of Thorin Oakenshield. He accompanied Thorin on the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon in 2941 of the Third Age. Ori’s hood was grey and he played the flute. He wrote well and quickly in a large, bold hand and often used Elvish script.

In 2989, Ori accompanied Balin on his quest to establish a colony in Moria. It was he who wrote the last passage in the Book of Mazarbul recording the Dwarves’ final days in 2994. He told of the death of Balin and the slaying of Oin by the Watcher in the Water and of how they became trapped by Orcs. Ori’s last words were:

“We cannot get out. The end comes … drums, drums in the deep … they are coming.”
The Fellowship of the Ring: “The Bridge of Khazad-dum”

Ori perished along with the rest of the Dwarves of Balin’s company.

Jed Brophy as Nori

Brophy has probably the most experience working with Peter Jackson compared to anyone else on the cast list. A well-established actor from New Zealand who is also an extremely capable horse rider, Brophy started his professional acting career playing the character of Dr. Jack Galloway on soap Shortland Street before appearing in Peter Jackson’s comedy-horror Braindead. Shortly after Brophy was featured in another Peter Jackson film, which was the critically-acclaimed Heavenly Creatures.

Seven years later, he appeared once again as several parts in The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King. Jed Brophy is currently working on adapting a screenplay based on a book and spending time with his two children and the Rohan horse he purchased after riding it in The Return of the King.

Adam Brown as Ori

Adam Brown is the youngest of the cast and definitely has the smallest resume of the bunch. Brown did have a role in and episode of the TV series ChuckleVison as well as had a small role in the Hollywood film, Monster.
