Earlier today, Lee Pace was involved in another Twitter-based Q&A — this time, to help promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. He took control of @TheHobbitMovie and answered various fan questions – both about himself and his character, Thranduil – to hilarious degrees. (Anyone else loving Lee on social media?) He even posted a few selfies, including one of… his socks. You can read a full transcript of the Q&A below:
@leepace is here and ready to answer your questions! #AskThranduil https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B38jmLmCcAAxnxd.jpg:large
