One of the happier real-life stories to come out of Hollywood in recent years has been the warm friendship that blossomed between the hobbit portraying co-stars of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy: Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan.
In December 2010 Glaswegian Boyd married his long term partner Ali McKinnon at Oran Mor, on the corner of Great Western Road and Byres Road. Both Wood and Monaghan attended the wedding. Elijah Wood was photographed by press walking up Byres Road with Billy Boyd and his son Jack, and on the steps of the venue with the other actors.
