Sam Smith Geeks Out over “The Hobbit” Set Visit

ABC/Randy HolmesWho knew that Sam Smith was such a fan of the Hobbit films?  He’s crammed his Instagram account full of photos of his visit to the movies’ set in New Zealand, declaring it the “Best day of my life.”

Sam posted a slew of pictures of himself visting Hobbiton, the part of Middle Earth where Hobbits like Bilbo Baggins, the main character in the Hobbit films, and Frodo — the main character in the The Lord of the Rings — live.  “THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING,” he wrote, adding,  “I feel like Frodo.”

Posing in front of the door to Bag End, Bilbo’s house, Sam captioned another photo, “Geeking OUT.”

“Sorry for so many pics, I just love it here,” he added, noting, “I would chop off my toe to live here and be a hobbit.”

After posting a photo of himself drinking “ale” in the movie set pub, The Green Dragon, Sam concluded by writing, “What a day. I am coming again. Until then I’m actually gonna build my own hobbit house. No joke x.”  Well, he’s certainly got the money for it.

Sam’s tour continues Wednesday in Auckland, New Zealand, and then moves on to Australia and Japan.
