Lugdush was an Uruk-hai of Isengard.  


Lugdush was in the service of Saruman and his army and a member of the Uruk-hai Scouts commanded by Uglúk that captured Merry and Pippin beneath Amon Hen, and drove them westwards to the eaves of Fangorn Forest. It was there that Lugdush met his end, at the hands of Éomer's Rohirrim in The Two Towers.[1][2][3]

Portrayal in AdaptationsEdit

Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogyEdit

Lugdush appears in the Peter Jackson films The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) and The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), in which he was one of Saruman's Uruk-hai scouts from Isengard, and a trusted subordinate of Uglúk.

He was ordered by Uglúk to set a guard around the halflings and not kill them unless their attackers broke through. He was later slaughtered by the Rohirrim at Fangorn forest, as are all the other Uruks and Orcs from Mordor that were under Grishnákh's command.

He was one of three characters to be played by stunt performer and actor Sala Baker (the other two being the portrayal of Sauron and the Murgash).
