9He was a book binder for seven years before he started acting. One of the books he bound was "The Lord Of The Rings".
10Billy Boyd has been apart of the Scottish band Beecake since it was formed in 2006. Their first album was released on iTunes June of 2010. And their second album Blue Sky Paradise was released on iTunes December of 2012.

12He and Ali became parents on April 26th 2006. Their son's name is Jack William Boyd.
13Has a home in Glasgow, Scotland, but sometimes stays in Los Angeles, CA.
14Hates cinnamon
15When he was first cast in The Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson asked him to tone down his Scottish accent, but found that the funny parts just weren't as funny without it, so Boyd was allowed to use his regular Scottish accent. Jackson and the writers then consulted The Hobbit. Bilbo Baggins's mother was a Took, and one of their ancestors had, according to the book, invented the game of golf. Since golf is of Scottish origin, they reasoned that Tolkien must have, therefore, intended for the Tooks to be Scottish.
16During college, he worked in a pizza hut, a bar and a comedy club to make ends meet.
17He was the teens choice for host of the European MTV awards in 2002.
18In The Lord of the Rings, according to the book, Pippin is 28 years old, which makes him the youngest of the four lead hobbits. However, Boyd is actually the oldest of the four hobbit actors.

22Is an avid surfer, and does so as often as possible.

#Quote
1I think I have a gift... but I haven't really opened that gift yet and given it to myself
2My worst habit is whistling while I sleep.
3[on his favorite cartoon character] "Daffy Duck, because he's funny and sarcastic."
4[on the bond between the four hobbit-actors:] We're really good friends. We spent last New Year together. Sean's married and has children, so he has other things that he has to do, but me, Dom, and Elijah all spent New Year in the borders of Scotland and England. [December 14, 2003]
5[on cast camraderie during shooting "The Lord of the Rings":] There was a lot of pranking, but that was more Dom (Dominic Monaghan) and Viggo (Viggo Mortensen). With Viggo, they were normally quite violent, aggressive ones. You would see Sean Bean walking across to his caravan, and then see this figure of Viggo running across the plains and rugby tackling him. Dom and Viggo were attacking each other's trailers for quite a while, redecorating inside and out with whatever they got their hands on. It was a very happy set, a very constructive set. [December 14, 2003]
6[teasing a journalist who asked about the hobbits' popularity in the gay community:] We had to learn how to canoe. I don't know why, because we don't do it in the movie, but it was part of our training. And there was a group shower. All the Americans, though, they were quite scared. Elijah and Sean just, like, didn't have a shower and left, but me, Orlando and Dominic, in our British way, all got involved in showers. But it was just a shower. [December 18, 2003]
7[on filming LOTR:] It was a tough shoot, you had to be there six days a week and it was absolutely exhausting. Peter Jackson has a really good bullshit monitor; if you're just acting that you're acting, he will know it, and he won't allow it. But that's great, because one of the main reasons that this film works is because, though it's a fantasy movie, it's so real. And although I'd do it all again tomorrow, by the end we were absolutely exhausted. I remember one time after doing a scene, an emotional scene, I was exhausted, having a headache and all, and coming in the next day, and Pete said, 'Okay, get yourself back to where you were yesterday', and I just thought that I could do anything but work myself up to that emotional peak again. [December 11, 2003]
8[on collaborating with Dominic Monaghan on a script:] I don't really think I'm a good writer. I think I'm too lazy to be a writer. There's always a Playstation or a movie or something to pull me away. Dom's better at writing and being that kind of guy. When I was filming in Mexico, we did a lot of it on tape and then Dom would write it later. Now we're working with a writer called David Gregg to finish it off and polish it up a bit, I guess. It's looking really good, and there are a lot of people interested in making it, and that's even better. So, hopefully, I'd love to work with Dom again and do a couple of different characters. I think it could be fun if we manage to keep a career going, to have this kind of two actors working together, but always playing different parts. It would be fun, I think. [December 11, 2003]
9On being asked if he could relate to his character, Pippin: "Strangely enough, the first time I tried to read the book I was on holiday in Florida. I dropped it in the pool my first day there. If that's not a Pippin thing to do, I don't know what is."
10"I realised that it was just about Pippin and some other people!" After reading 'Lord of the Rings' for the first time.
11Hobbits are a lot like Scots. It's all about nature and enjoying their land, which is a very Scottish thing.
12To play one of the main characters in it, it's not the kind of thing you don't do. Oh, I'd rather not play Pippin in Lord of the Rings..., In fact, what else would you rather do, you know? I can't actually think of another job that I'd rather do.
