Voice Compare » Lord of the Rings » Thorin Oakenshield
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Thorin Oakenshield with sound clips and images.
Thorin Oakenshield is the King of the Dwarves and rightful ruler of the Lonely Mountain, which had been taken over by Smaug the Dragon. He is quite stern and haughty and not particularly inspiring or clever as a leader. He has a habit of sitting down and singing about gold, which is most definitely not a sign of his bitterness about his kingdom being taken.
EDITOR'S OPINIONWhile Conried's Thorin is competently acted, the softness of his voice doesn't quite demand attention as someone who is supposedly a king. Revill has a harsher, hardier sound for Thorin that better fits his aged and stern persona, so he gets the upper hand here.
