Latest guest, and old friend to Showmasters, for Return to Middle Earth is the Dark Lord himself, Sala Baker! Baker took on the role of “Sauron”; although also played Orcs and performed stunts throughout the trilogy. We’re excited to have him at our LOTR event!Sala Baker appeared in all of the Lord of the Rings movies taking on various roles, most notably the dark lord “Sauron”. Baker’s other contributions to the films include performing stunts throughout the trilogy, playing an Orc and a Man Flesh Uruk. Sauron would not allow his name to be written on spoken, instead he was often referred to as “the Eye”, the symbol that his Orcs bore. When Isildur cuts off the Ring with the hilt-shard of the sword Narsil Sauron’s body disintegrates to become the Eye.
