    Ian Holm, Shakespearean Actor Who Played Bilbo Baggins, Dies at 88

    Ian Holm, the classically trained Shakespearean actor best known to film audiences for his performances in films including the “Lord of the Rings” and “Hobbit” movies, “Chariots of Fire” and “Alien,” has died. He was 88.

    A rep for the actor has said Holm died in hospital on Friday morning. The actor had been battling Parkinson’s Disease for a number of years. However, as recently as January, Holm appeared in person to collect the Newport Beach Film Festival’s Icon Award in London.

    Holm, who was celebrated for interpretations of most of the Shakespeare canon, including a towering “King Lear,” also excelled onstage in the original production of Harold Pinter’s “The Homecoming,” which he also brought to Broadway. He began working in films only midway through his career, debuting with an adaptation of his stage performance in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in 1968.

    In later years, however, he worked increasingly in movies and more selectively onstage, appearing in high-profile films such as “Alien,” “The Fifth Element,” “Lord of the Rings” pics “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Return of the King” and “Hobbit” movies “An Unexpected Journey” and “The Battle of the Five Armies.”

    Yes, across the Sundering Seas.

    But, did you know Ian Holm played Frodo Baggins in the 1981 BBC Radio serial of Lord of the Rings? If you like Tolkien, this radio serial is a masterpiece.

    I read about Tolkein in 1980. Read all the series the first time in 1979 from my neighbor. I believe I heard the BBC version too. I have a mini book about tales from him too.

    He went to the Grey havens.
