Five members of the cast of The Lord of the Rings catch up in the 16th anniversary of The Fellowship of the Ring's premiere, a film that would go down in film History. Dominique Monaghan - who played the role of Meriadoc Brandybuck in the trilogy - shared pictures of himself hanging out at a restaurant with Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), Billy Boyd (Peregrin Took) and Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins).

The former cast mates picked up cutlery from the restaurant table to recreate a popular the Fellowship scene in which the group is attached by a horde of Orcs in the mines of Moria. “They have a cave troll,” Monaghan captioned a photo on his Instagram account as the men posed with cutlery from a restaurant and prepared to fight off a nonexistent cave troll. With that caption, he was quoting Boromir, Sean Bean's character.
Monaghan also shared a few other adorable shots from the mini-reunion, including one photo with Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) with the caption: “My captain. My king.”
Despite the trilogy's was released over a decade ago, its cast members and the fandom still make it to the news. A few weeks before the mini-reunion, it was reported that a great-grandmother from Brazil has accidentally been praying to a figurine of a Lord of the Rings character, having mistaken it for a figure of Saint Anthony, the patron saint of lost things.
Last year, the Lord of the Rings‘ casting director revealed in December why David Bowie didn't play Gandalf, the part that earned McKellen an Oscar nomination. It would not be possible for such a busy singer like Bowie to give up two years of their lives to film the fantasy trilogy in New Zealand.
Casting director, Amy Hubbard, said: “He was unavailable. It was a very quick conversation with the legendary Chris Andrews at CAA. I do believe that (David Bowie) went over and played for everybody at the Millennium party. that would've been New Year's Eve in the year 1999, which was when the films were being shot. He went over and entertained everybody, but he never auditioned. That's for sure.”
Mortensen, Monaghan, Wood, Boyd and Bloom last appeared on screen together in 2003's Return of the King, but it seems they've been feeling nostalgic: they've recently interviewed each other for an anniversary feature story in Empire, and Bloom posted more than a dozen behind-the-scenes photos from the Peter Jackson-directed trilogy.
If you are also feeling nostalgic, here are some of the most famous quotes from The Lord of the Rings:

“The time of the Elves... is over. Do we leave Middle-Earth to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?” - Lady of the Wood
“We swears to serve the master of the Precious. We will swear on... on the Precious!” - Gollum
