Richard’s scale/stunt double gets moment in spotlight


Mark Atkins, one of the people I follow on Twitter, is also the scale double and stunt performer for Richard in The Hobbit trilogy. Mark was spotlighted in a local UK newspaper this week and I wanted to share the link with you. From everything I understand, he’s a very nice young man (several fans got to meet and dine with him in Wellington as I recall). And I didn’t know he used to be a police officer! There are also some nice pix with the story, including one of his proud mum and a shot of Mark with PJ.

It can’t hurt to run this cute pic of Rich and Mark at a charity event once again. A couple of hotties!

  1. Thanks for the link. Short is good too. My oldest son is 5’3 and at 21 I don’t think he will get any taller since he has been this tall since he was 12.
