Richard to attend Book of New Zealand event? And KoolKiwi interview coming soon

Thanks to crystalchadlyre and Leena Tailor of KoolKiwis for the news that Richard will most likely be attending the “Book of New Zealand” event on Saturday, 30 November at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.  The Book of New Zealand is a walk-through, multi-media display that depicts four New Zealand filming locations, along with four film sets from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.  The event on Saturday is invitation-only but it will be open to the public on 4 December.  Leena Tailor will be attending on Saturday as a journalist on Saturday and will try to tweet during the event.

Leena Tailor also said that the interview she did with Richard for KoolKiwis a few weeks ago will be part of an article on the “Hotties of the Hobbit” and will be posted soon.  She teases from the article: ““[We will] find out the first place Richard Armitage goes when he lands in Wellington, what he learned from Peter Jackson and who made him starstruck.”
