Otho Sackville-Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire.

Biography Edit

Otho adopted the name of both his parents, Longo Baggins and Camellia Sackville, effectively founding a new family. He was the head of the family for many years and his son Lotho had ambitions to succeed Bilbo (and later Frodo) as head of the Baggins family; had that happened before he died, Lotho would have called himself 'Baggins-Sackville-Baggins'.[1][2]

Portrayal in adaptations Edit

Radio Edit

Otho was voiced by John Livesey in the 1981 radio series The Lord of the Rings.

Films Edit

In The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Special Extended Edition) Otho was played by Peter Corrigan, but has no lines.

In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012, Extended Edition), Otho was played by Brian Hotter in a cameo, walking with his (Otho's) wife at the market at the Green Dragon Inn.
