Dominic Monaghan: I Don't Want To Hurt Me, Or The Animals

Posted: Updated:

Dominic Monaghan is back for a new season of ‘Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan'.

Fun Facts About Dominic Monaghan: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is a German-born English actor. He has received international attention from playing Meriadoc Brandybuck in Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and for his role as Charlie Pace on the television show Lost. In 2009 he played Chris Bradley / Bolt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

2) Although Monaghan held many occupations when he was younger, he always wanted to be an actor. After his second year at St. Anne's, Monaghan became a regular in school plays such as Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol and Bugsy Malone before joining Manchester Youth Theatre. There, he was scouted for Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, on which he played Hetty's under-aged sidekick, Geoffrey Shawcross, for four series. He made his feature-film debut as Russian sailor Sasha in the TV film Hostile Waters.

3) Monaghan later starred in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy as Meriadoc Brandybuck, for which he achieved international acclaim and success. Monaghan narrated Ringers: Lord of the Fans, a documentary about The Lord of the Rings fandom. He also provided the narration for The Discovery Channel's documentary Devil's Bible in 2008. He also appeared in Soldiers of Fortune alongside Sean Bean and Christian Slater.

4) He was a regular cast member on the ABC series Lost playing English ex-rock star drug addict Charlie Pace. Monaghan originally auditioned for the role of Sawyer. The role of Pace was then changed from an old, washed up rocker from the 1980s, to a young one-hit wonder in order to accommodate Monaghan's age.

‘Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan' premieres Tuesday night at 10:00pm on BBC America.
