John Rhys-Davies is a Welsh-born British actor.
He is best known for his roles in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Indiana Jones films.
John’s film career began in the 1970s with small roles in British films and TV series. Serious success came to him after the role of Sallah in 2 films about Indiana Jones with Harrison Ford in the main role. Since then, his career has gone up and he began to appear more and more on the big screens.
But the crowning achievement of John’s career was filming in Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. There he played the role of the dwarf Gimli, thanks to which he became famous throughout the world.
John was married to Suzanne Wilkinson from 1966 to 2010. But they separated in 1985 and the actor started dating Lisa Manning. The two welcomed a daughter together.
The high growth of the actor did not prevent him from playing the role of a dwarf, which should be quite low. His height even became a plus for this role. The thing is that the dwarfs are taller than the hobbits, which means that the actors must also be of proportional growth. It is also known that John had problems with being overweight, which he had to overcome in order to continue his career.
