About this title


The fascinating memoir of a Hollywood life and an inside look at a life-changing role and the groundbreaking film trilogy that captured the imagination of movie fans everywhere
The Lord of the Rings is one of the most successful film franchises in cinematic history. Breaking box office records worldwide, capturing numerous Academy Awards, the trilogy is a breathtaking cinematic achievement and beloved by fans everywhere.
For Sean Astin, the call from his agent about the role of Samwise Gamgee couldn’t have come at a better time. His career was at a low point and choice roles were hard to come by. But his 18-month experience in New Zealand with director Peter Jackson and the cast and crew of The Lord of the Rings films would be more than simply a dream-come-true—it would prove to be the challenge of a lifetime.
Though much has been written about the making of the films, the real story of what took place on the set, the harrowing ordeals of the actors and the unspoken controversy and backstage dealings have never been told. More than a companion guide to the Rings films, There and Back Again is filled with stories from the set and of the actors involved that have never before been revealed—an eye-opening look at the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the making of one of the most ambitious films of all time.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Sean Astin and his performance in Lord of the Rings Trilogy:

"Every night, Sean Astin is bringing people to tears with his performance it's so powerful."
- Peter Jackson, Director, Lord of the Rings film trilogy

"Sean Astin comes into his own with this brave, questing performance. . . Astin is the sould of the movie . . .It's fitting that Sam is the last face we see in Return of the King. He is the film's anchor, and Astin plays him with a tenderness that is unique and unforgettable."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"The most touching figure . . .is Frodo's sidekick, Sam, who will literally follow Frodo into fire. Sam is played so well by Sean Astin this affectingly loyal hobbit seems the most human figure on screen."
- The New York Times
