It's hard to believe it's been more than a decade since we watched Gandalf and Frodo sail off into the Great Sea together (if you're not familiar with Middle Earth geography read this), but that milestone brings up an important question: Where are Lord of the Rings actors now? In all likelihood, the cast of Lord of the Rings probably don't need to be doing anything at all, with their finances almost certainly set for life, but of course most of them have remained in the limelight to varying degrees.
After being such a huge part of cinematic history, as LOTR popularized fantasy and adaptations like nothing before (even if some people had problems with the movies' loyalty to the books), it's difficult to imagine any of the actors from that beloved trilogy struggling to find work. Fortunately most of them haven't, but there is quite a discrepancy in the varied levels of success amongst the alum.
Here's a look at the Lord of the Rings cast then and now. Be warned, there's a spoiler for Stranger Things 2 in Sean Astin's entry.
