You gotta love these two!!! ❤ ❤ During Billy Boyd’s panel at Salt Lake City Comic Con he called Dominic Monaghan (as he has been doing at a couple of other previous conventions such as Hobbitcon earlier this year) and it is as usual full of laughs and feels…
Thanks to all those who attended and shared it on social media for the rest of us to enjoy!
Check out these bonus features of episode 7 in New Zealand, with not only our fearless Dom but the lovely and funny Billy Boyd!
The episode is now available on Amazon, iTunes and YouTube “at a low low price for a priceless episode!”
And here are sneak peek videos of episode 7 when Dom is actually in the USA! More specifically, the Wild Things team go to Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, the most bio desert in all of North America – it’s also one of the hottest.
