While watching LOTR again recently, my daughter raised a question that I hadn’t considered before:
Elves, being immortal, stop aging at some point after reaching maturity. So does this mean that it’s impossible to discern elves’ relative age? Do all elves look the same age?
My daughter noted that Elrond (Hugo Weaving, age 40 during filming) and Arwen (Liv Tyler, age 23) look like they could be father & daughter to us; but in “real life” would they have looked the same age?
