1. Sean Bean is terrified of flying. So during Lord of the Rings when the cast had to fly to remote shoot locations by helicopter, like the snowy mountains, he traveled part of the way via ski-lift and then spent two hours walking the remainder of the journey in full Boromir costume. 2. In Lord Of The Rings, Elrond and Aragorn were distantly related through Elrond's brother, Elros.
