Congratulations to The Actors Pulse's Stephen Hunter who has been confirmed for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit films.

On October 15 this year, the films were given the green light making pre-production go full steam ahead. Stephen's role of Bombur was announced shortly after and he will be joining the following ensemble cast: Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins), Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakensheild), Rob Kazinsky (Fili), Aidan Turner (Kili), Graham McTavish (Dwalin), John Callen (Oin), Mark Hadlow (Dori) and Peter Hambleton (Gloin).

In the Sydney Morning Herald, Peter Jackson said he was thrilled to be working with McTavish and Hadlow. He then went on to say "I am also proud to announce the casting of New Zealand actors such as Peter Hambleton, John Callen and Stephen Hunter. Fran and I know that they will bring great depth and talent to our Company of Dwarves." See full article at: www.smh.com.au

We are so proud of Stephen and the enormous amount of effort and commitment that went into his preparations for the audition.

For the past 5 years he has had personal acting instruction under Billy Milionis, studying consistently at The Actors Pulse. Leading up to this role, Stephen has been solidly auditioning and has just about landed everything he has auditioned for. Someone with his level of commitment and dedication to not only the craft of acting, but also the work involved is a rare find. Bombur in The Hobbit is a role truly well deserved.
