@dr_mikki: if you were accumulating your own dragon’s hoard, what would you want as the prize of your collection?
BC: The Ring. The invincible dragon’s got to rule them all surely.
@_LauraHolmes_: How would you describe Martin Freeman in 3 words?
BC: Smart. Original. Mod.
@RachelFerron_TW: how much do you love your fans?
BC: More than I can say in a tweet.
BC: An astonishing addition to the edible collection. One day, I will have to eat myself.
@JenCappelli: Who would win in a sass-off? Smaug or Martin? ….can dragons give the middle claw?
BC: Martin, obviously. Smaug gets pretty clumsy in a rage until he flies. Then, I suppose he might have time to give the birdy.
@CeceCalabrese: Do you fancy a go at the Director’s Chair?
BC: Yes, one day.
@b_smoraes: Is there a person (alive or dead) you would like to spend a day with? who?
BC: My grandfathers. I never met either.
@britishmenRhot: Which felt weirder on your face? Neuron cream or motion capture dots.
BC: Neutron cream… better for your skin 😉
@highsockmojo: what/who did you use as your inspiration for Smaug?
BC: My father read the book to me as a 7-year old child.
BC: Goat pie or dwarf cake.
@rosiescot: If you lived in Middle Earth, would you like to be a Hobbit, Elf, Wizard (yes, staff, beard, & all) or a Dwarf? X
BC: I’m quite happy being a dragon, thanks. Oh, and the Necromancer – a disembodied spirit of evil. Less time in the make-up chair!
@holmesexuals Is twitter treating you okay?
BC: Yes, so let’s break it.
@swiftsherlock what was your favourite line in the movie?
BC: I am… death.
@PondsAt221B What kind of music do you think Smaug would enjoy?
BC: Liberace. A little bit of Burt Bacharach. And Enya.
@__mystique If you could play any cartoon character/superhero/villain from your childhood, who would you play??
BC: Puff the Magic Dragon.
@tennanteleven what would be your ideal christmas present?
BC: Some free time. And a sea view.
@maybeginger if you could master one other skill (apart from your glorious acting), what would it be?
BC: You’re very kind. Flying would be nice. Piano and French are more realistic though.
@fondueatspeedys would you rather breathe fire or be able to fly?
BC: Fly. Fly. Fly.And maybe fart fire while flying. To fly faster.
