In a recent interview, Richard Armitage revealed that he was quite emotional about the completion of the trilogy.

The 42-year-old actor spoke with BANG Showbiz about finally wrapping the trilogy and how now that the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogy was completed, he was very moved.

"It will be 15 years of Peter Jackson's work, there'll be six movies to watch, but it could be the final time. There's something moving about that," he said.

The actor, who portrays Thorin, suggested that the film will be shorter than the previous two, we wondered if that means it will be different from Tolkien's written ending because of its length. But it doesn's seem like it, director Peter Jackson has incorporated the grand finale in the last in the trilogy.

"It'll be a shorter film and you'll get to hear the end of the tale that Tolkien wrote," he said.

Armitage went on to suggest that his character would really suffer some as he fights the ultimate battle.

''I can tell you nothing about the Battle of the Five Armies other than it cost me some blood and some tears," he said. ''I think it's a testament to Peter Jackson's casting that the actors that come together to work on a movie with him do naturally develop a fellowship."

He also discussed filming in New Zealand and his experience there.

''It [the film] took me away to New Zealand for 18 months, which was a bit of a change," he said. ''I was introduced to some incredible people; I was made to feel like one of the family. The time we were afforded to shoot made me work in a different way."

Armitage also revealed that he was also gifted Thorin's sword at the end of the shoot and was "very proud of it."

The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit theaters on Dec. 18.
