We all remember how The Lord of the Rings astounded the world way back in 2001-2003. At the time, thousands of moviegoers dreamed of exploring Middle Earth and debated who was the more handsome character: Legolas or Aragorn.

We at Dailyjoys decided to take a look at how the actors from our favorite fantasy trilogy have changed over the past 15 years since the movies were on our screens.

1.Gollum (Andy Serkis)

Andy played the role of King Kong and as Caesar the primate in the movie ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes.’

2.Gimli (John Rhys-Davies)

From a role in ‘Spongebob Square Pants’ to ‘Indiana Jones,’ this man has played a wide array of interesting characters.

3.Elrond (Hugo Weaving)
