David Wenham Trivia

Has been voted the Sexiest Man Alive (in Australia).
- submitted by Lindsay Elizabeth M (3 years ago)
Was given the part of Faramir in the "Lord of the Rings" films because of his resemblance to his on-screen brother, Sean Bean. According to David, they both have big noses.

Quotes from David Wenham's Characters

    1. Frodo Baggins: We are bound to an errand of secrecy. Those who claim to oppose the enemy would do well not to hinder us.
    2. Faramir: The enemy? [looks at dead soldier] His sense of duty was no greater than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is. Where he came from and if he really was evil at heart. What lies or threats drove him on this long march from home. Would he not rather have stayed there...in peace? War will make corpses of us all. Bind their hands.
