Royd Tolkien is the great-grandson of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. He portrayed the invented character Golasgil in Peter Jackson's The Return of the King film, who is seen handing out weapons to the other soldiers before the orcs' assault on Osgiliath. It is unknown whether his character was killed due to the savage attack led by Gothmog.
He also portrayed an Undertaker of Gondor in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Special Extended Edition. His character and a few men buried the Witch-king in the High Fells of Rhudaur - as seen in a flashback while Galadriel spoke at The White Council.
