Best Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Characters

The Top Ten

1 Legolas Legolas Legolas is a character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He is a Sindarin Elf of the Woodland Realm and one of nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring. He has been portrayed by Orlando Bloom in the live action movies.

He is one of the best and most popular characters in the Hobbit and LotR trilogies. He is also quite mysterious, because we don't know much about his background at all. He was created by Tolkien so that there would be an Elven character in the Fellowship that wouldn't overshadow Aragorn and the others. Because of that he was sadly never written about in a lot of detail. He is the son of the Elvenking Thranduil, who is arguably also one of the best characters in the Hobbit movie trilogy. We don't know what his date of birth is, but it's fair to say that he is at least 2000 years old, quite possibly even older. In the movies he is almost 3000 years old. He's very popular and well known because of his portrayal by Orlando Bloom in the trilogies.

I would marry him if he was real. Even if he said no - LegoGeek21

Legolas is the best!

I would marry him even if he said no haha I agree #LegoGeek21
