(Cover) - EN Movies - Martin Freeman believes his character in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has had sex.

The British actor has been shooting the movie in New Zealand recently. It’s a prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Martin is portraying the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.

Martin admits he has considered everything about the character to help him prepare for the role.

“I think he’s had sex. I’m not sure,” he told Total Film. “I’m trying to convince Peter to write that scene in...”

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy star is thrilled to be part of such a huge production.

For a short time Martin thought he would be unable to appear in the film as he was committed to the British TV series, Sherlock.

“I was sad but I thought, ‘I’ll just hate whoever plays Bilbo,’” he smiled.

Luckily for Martin, Peter Jackson and his team were so intent on casting him that the production went on hiatus to allow him to complete shooting.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is slated to hit screens late next year.
