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 is played by Peter Corrigan, but has no lines.

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