1The thing that I judged myself the harshest for was a kids' movie that I did. I did Marmaduke (2010). At the time I gave myself a real hard time for it, but I'm so grateful... whenever kids come up to me, the parents are like, "We watched it everyday for a month." You don't get that on Soldier's Girl (2003). A little bit different. But... oh god please don't take this the wrong way, I have to be grateful for the work that I get. And I am grateful! What I was really kind of annoyed with myself about was I'd just finished Pushing Daisies (2007) and I was really sad that that was over. And I know that I wasn't responsible for it being over, but I was the lead of that show, and when it falls apart, you do feel a little bit of like, "Aww... I must've missed it. Maybe I'm responsible for why people didn't watch. Maybe if I was in tabloids more, people would be more interested." These are the kind of things that go through your head. And so I felt like I was lazily doing a cheap version of Ned. I was doing that "Like me!" dance that a lot of actors do. It's easy to get caught up in that. "Do you like me? Do you like me like this? What if I do that? What if I wear this?" At the time I was thinking, "I've got to take it because I might not be able to do this forever." You know? But you take it and you learn. I learned a lot on that movie. You always learn something if you pay attention.
2All I ever remember wanting to do, as a kid, was act - nothing else. In fact, about the only thing, other than acting, that I'd like to do is go live in the woods, build a log cabin at the top of a hill and try and hide away from the modern world. So, in many ways, [The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)] ticked all the boxes: not only is it the ultimate acting challenge but it's also biggest adventure you could go on while making a film.
3[on Lincoln (2012)] It was the job of a lifetime.
4I find that the best way into [acting successfully] is to open my heart up to it and allow it to be as truthful and honest as I can be, and I can make it. It's hard to do that; it's hard to open yourself up to something.
5[on gays in the military, in context of his film Soldier's Girl (2003)] I think that it's an issue of human rights, and the government is kind of turning a blind eye to the fact that people are being abused and murdered. And I think it's one of the few policies that you look at, and no one is happy with. The government policy is vague - don't ask, don't tell. It makes no sense to me.
6Peter Jackson has the sort of imagination that no one else has.
7I just appreciate that Twilight really does bring a Community of people together.
8Whenever I get recognized, it's from The Fall (2006).
9[on Lincoln (2012)] That was a real pinnacle of what I've done as an actor - to be on that set with Steven Spielberg and working with Tommy Lee Jones was just awesome. It was very different than theater. We didn't rehearse at all. We'd literally just come to the set and Steven was like, "OK, are you ready to shoot his?" I had this big, long speech my first day on the set, and there were hundreds of people in the room, and he was like, "Well, why don't we just shoot one take? I've got the camera back there." And I was just like, "Alright!"
10I tried surfing once in Brazil, but I'm kind of clumsy.
11(On Pushing Daisies (2007)) I've got three movies ready to come out and had no interest in a TV series. When they called my agent, he told them that, but then I read the script, and I knew it was going to be great. I was worried at first about the plot, but they pulled it off, all that psychic phenomenon stuff.
12(On if he was ever a struggling actor) No, I was very fortunate. A month before graduation I got an off-Broadway job. Then I did some commercials, including one for MCI. You can only see half of me, but it paid well. Thank God for commercials.
13(On the difference between TV and film acting) The day is different. The way the day runs if totally different. With TV, you have so much to get done during the day that you don't really have a lot of time to feel your way through it. I know before I walk on the set exactly what I'm going to do. With film you can kind of find your way in it a little more, play with it some.
14(On Soldier's Girl (2003)) That was an extremely hard shoot and a really difficult part to play. And I just remember walking out of that one thinking, 'It's not always going to be easy, and that's okay.'
1He has appeared in three films with Christopher Lee: The Resident (2011), The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014).
2Owns a farm.
3Sustained a shoulder injury while working on Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
4When his parents visited him on the set of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) they were hired by director Peter Jackson to play extras. However, they are not to be seen in the final film, and according to Pace, then it's because his father was "hamming it up" in his brief screen-time.
5Has portrayed two immortal characters, in "The Hobbit" series and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012), and his character in Pushing Daisies (2007) had the ability to bring people back from life.
6Good friends with Maggie Grace and Mía Maestro.
7On set, he often encourages his co-stars to have a dance-off between takes. He succeeded on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) as well as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012), and both times the dancing were filmed by the crew and went on to feature on the DVD Extras.
8One of only three actors to appear in five films in a row that all grossed $100 million the US box office. The other two are Will Smith and Robert Downey Jr..

11During high school, he attended the senior prom every year and was accompanied by a different girl each time.
12Skydiving is an active hobby of his.
13Upon wrapping The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014), he kept his prosthetic elf ears and his character's elven-sword. The ears are kept in a book, while he keeps the sword in his umbrella stand.
14According to Steven Spielberg, Pace's opening monologue in Lincoln (2012) was rewritten shortly before the scene was shot. Pace had to remember the monologue in four minutes before the cameras began rolling.
15David Tennant and Doug Jones were both considered for the part of King Thranduil in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012), before Pace was given the part. Director Peter Jackson saw Pace's performance in The Fall (2006) which subsequently made Pace the front-runner for the part.
16Steven Spielberg decided to cast him as Fernando Wood in Lincoln (2012) after seeing his performance in Ceremony (2010). Spielberg seemingly did not take issue with the age difference between Pace and Wood. In real life, Wood was 53 years old when the story of the film took place. Pace was 33 when he portrayed him.

26Missed the world premiere of both Lincoln (2012) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012) as he was busy with the Broadway-play "The Golden Age". The following year he missed out on the world premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013), since he was busy filming additional episodes for Halt and Catch Fire (2014) in Atlanta.

28In December 2012, he auditioned for the role of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). However, in April 2013, four months after his initial audition, he was cast as the antagonist in the film, Ronan the Acuser.
29Amy Adams admittedly thought "he just looked so dashing" on the set of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008), that it made the director ask Lee to leave the set, because he distracted Amy too much.
30Did his own singing alongside Amy Adams in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008).
31He is two years younger than Orlando Bloom, despite playing the father, King Thranduil, to Bloom's character Legolas in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013).
32Portrays a paraplegic in The Fall (2006), but director Tarsem Singh decided to keep almost the entire cast and crew under the impression that Pace also suffered from it in real life. A makeup artist walked into a room to find Pace standing and almost passed out from shock.
33Good friends with Matt Bomer. Both have circled parts in 'The Normal Heart' written by 'Larry Kramer'. Pace was directed by Joel Grey in his debut on Broadway on 2011, while Bomer was directed by Ryan Murphy in The Normal Heart (2014). However, they did not portray the same character.
