Philippa Boyens

Philippa Boyens (incredibly) began her screenwriting career with The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Before then the long-time Tolkien fan had worked mainly in theatre. Return of the King won Boyens an Oscar, a BAFTA, and many other awards. She next worked with Jackson and Walsh on King Kong, and an adaptation of novel The Lovely Bones. Boyens returned to Middle-earth for The Hobbit

We started with 27 copies of the paperback, and none of them are intact. Some of them are probably in caravans left on the side of Mount Ruapehu. There‚Äôs probably some left in little tiny hotel rooms in Te Anau.
