Galadriel - Lady of Light

 Lady of Lothlorien, 'Lady of Light'. Galadriel is one of the oldest elves that has not journeyed to the West and is the barer of Nenya, one of the elven rings of power, the Ring of Adamant, but with the One Ring she would be able to match Sauron in power but in doing so she would become the evil that the ring wants. "In place of a Dark Lord you will set up a Queen, not dark but beautiful." Galadriel and her husband Celeborn look after the safe haven of Lothlorien and with help of her magical mirror she enables a viewer to see the past, present or future. Galadriel is played by Cate Blanchett, best known for her role in Elizabeth, "I have always wanted pointy ears."

She has a brief role in The Two Towers as she speaks to Elrond about the quest and decides with him to send Elves to help those at Helm's Deep and there is meant to be more so hopefully we see more of it in the Special Edition DVD.

After the Tunnel of Cirth Ungol Frodo finds himself dispirited and alone, he had left his best friend behind and had been betrayed by someone he thought he could save. Exhausted Frodo falls to the ground and finds himself in the glade of Galadriel, she offers him a smile that would light up anyone’s day and picks him up off his feet, giving him the strength to continue on his path, “Even the smallest person can change the course of history.”

Later when the Ringbearers are leaving Middle Earth she travels to the Grey Havens with Celeborn, her husband, Elrond her kinsman and board a ship with the Master ship wright Cirdan who also bore an Elven Ring of Power for a time before giving it to Gandalf. When the ship pulls into port she gives the hobbits a mischievous smile before boarding the boat.

Although Galadriel doesn’t have a speaking part in this movie her presence is one of importance, you get to see her giving Frodo strength and passing into the West with the rest of her kin.

Celeborn

- Galadriel rules with Celeborn in Lothlorien because he was kin to Amroth the last King of the Golden Wood who was the son of Amdir (Malgalad, an adventurer prince from Doriath).  

Lord of the Galadhrim and a prince of Doriath. Doriath was a great elf kingdom in the 1st Age. It was in Doriath that Celeborn and Galadriel met and wed. In the 2nd Age, the Lord and Lady ruled Eregion where the three Elven Rings of Power were forged. They became the rulers of Lothlorien in the 3rd Age when his far kinsman, Amroth, the king of the Golden Wood, was lost at sea. "…and together through the ages of the world we have fought the long defeat." Celeborn gives to the fellowship the gift of three elven boats to travel the great river. He advises them about the terrain and dangers they will encounter. "Even if your Quest did not concern us closely, you should have refuge in this city." The film does not include these events. Celeborn is played by New Zealand actor Marton Csokas known to fans for his role as Borias on "Xena, Warrior Princess". Marton: "Celeborn is more fixed in his beliefs and methods than Galadriel, which is his failing, perhaps. As a team, they work well, although apparently they only have sex once every 2,000 years or so."

Note: He has an extended scene in the Special Edition DVD where we see more of him and a nicer side to Galadriel as well.
