As I am sure you can tell, I am a big fan of HBO’s new series Rome. It is an incredible show with a great story and even greater atmosphere. However, since the first episode there has been one thing that has bothered me. Everytime I see Octavia I think she looks exactly like Elijah Wood and it just makes me think Frodo Baggins.

Lets examine here, some quick pictoral evidence. I might be able to get a more convincing comparison if I say took a shot from the DVD of Frodo when he was pale white and when Octavia was pale white in that episode. But since I am very lazy, I just took a quick screen cap of Rome and searched Google for pictures of Frodo.

Frodo Baggins played by Elijah Wood Octavia played by Kerry Condon

Can you see the similarities? I sure can, I am sure someone else has noticed this! Next time you watch you just be thinking Frodo. It will change the whole experience.
