Pippin Took gets the Ring - Billy Boyd's wedding reunites hobbits

Nothing better then a 'hobbit' wedding to end the year with a happy smile. Billy Boyd, best known for his role as Pippin Took in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy movies, married long-term partner Ali McKinnon in an intimate but beautiful ceremony in Glasgow. Dominic Monaghan (Merry) and Elijah Wood (Frodo) looked smart and very happy on the steps of Oran Mor converted church after the wedding.

Billy's acting career has been quiet since The Lord of the Rings Trilogy but this does not make him less talented. He is ( and always will be) my favourite hobbit. I know Billy sometimes miss Middle-earth, ...don't we all ? He was never just an actor 'playing' a hobbit , he is Peregrin Took, and this is why his performance in the movies is so outstanding and credible. I want to wish Billy and Ali all the happiness in the world on the news of their wedding.
