Queenstown in People's Lives

Agatha Christie: I visited here in 1922.

Orlando Bloom: I lived here from about 1999 - 2002, filming the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Some of the best years of my life, and my first major role in a film, I remember those days with the best of memories. Originally, I auditioned for the part of Faramir. While shooting a scene here, I fell from a horse and broke a rib.

Viggo Mortensen: I lived here from 1999 - 2002, approximately, filming The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was what I still refer to as the best time of my life.
