Biography Edit


Odo Proudfoot at Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party

Odo Proudfoot was the cousin of Bilbo Baggins. Odo was born in TA 2904 (SR 1304). His parents were Bodo Proudfoot and Linda (Baggins) Proudfoot – aunt of Bilbo. He had a son named Olo to an unnamed wife and a mischievous grandson Sancho Proudfoot.

Odo Proudfoot was a guest at Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party on September 22, 1401 (3001). He became annoyed when Bilbo used the incorrect plural of his family name: Proudfoots instead of the correct Proudfeet. When Bilbo disappeared using his Magic Ring, Odo took his feet off the table and stamped on the ground.

Odo Proudfoot died in TA 3005 (SR 1405) of the Third Age.[1][2][3]

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

In the first and third movies of Peter Jackson's film trilogy, Odo was portrayed by Noel Appleby, credited as "Everard Proudfoot". In the first film, he is chastised by his wife for enjoying Gandalf's fireworks as Gandalf had been labeled as a disturber of the peace; Proudfoot's role during the party is the same.

In the third film, he appears briefly watching Frodo and his friends returning to the Shire and later in the Green Dragon Inn.
