Murgash was acted by [[Sala Baker]]. In the extended edition of the film he first appears alongside [[Guritz]] on the [[Pelennor Fields]], and again at the gates of [[Minas Tirith]], where he tells Gothmog that the gates are impenetrable - though Gothmog then rectifies this dilemma by using the "Wolf's Head", which is [[Grond]]. Murgash is later seen with Guritz and his battalion at the docks (the harlond), mocking the [[Corsairs of Umbar]], who apparently are late for battle. Their sarcasm turned to terror when Aragorn and his two companions and the [[Army of the Dead]] swarmed off the ships and charged the Orcs head-on. Despite the obvious futility of even attempting to fight back, Murgash lunged at [[Aragorn]] with a sword, only to have his head cut off.

Portrayal in adaptations

Peter Jackson's The Return of the King

Murgash was acted by Sala Baker. In the extended edition of the film he first appears alongside Guritz on the Pelennor Fields, and again at the gates of Minas Tirith, where he tells Gothmog that the gates are impenetrable - though Gothmog then rectifies this dilemma by using the "Wolf's Head", which is Grond. Murgash is later seen with Guritz and his battalion at the docks (the harlond), mocking the Corsairs of Umbar, who apparently are late for battle. Their sarcasm turned to terror when Aragorn and his two companions and the Army of the Dead swarmed off the ships and charged the Orcs head-on. Despite the obvious futility of even attempting to fight back, Murgash lunged at Aragorn with a sword, only to have his head sliced off.
