  • Gríma Wormtongue
rdfs:comment
  • Counselor to King Théoden, Gríma son of Gálmód—called ‘Wormtongue’—was easily swayed to evil by Saruman the Wise. Now Gríma worked Saruman’s will upon his liege-lord Théoden, poisoning thoughts and inflicting foul leechcraft towards the King’s ruination. Wormtongue spent most of his time in Meduseld administering venomous counsel to the King, but he visited Orthanc frequently.
  • Gríma Wormtongue was the chief advisor to King Théoden of Rohan before being exposed as an agent and spy of Saruman. He ends up being the killer of Saruman, in the last climactic chapter of The Return of the King.
  • Gríma Wormtongue is an antagonist in The Lord of the Rings series, first appearing as the tertiary antagonist in The Two Towers. He is portrayed by Brad Dourif who portrays The Gemini Killer and also voices Chucky and portrays Zoso from ABC's Once Upon A Time.
  • Gríma son of Gálmód, called the Wormtongue, was a trusted retainer of Théoden, king of Rohan. At some point before the events of the books, he went into the service of Saruman and corrupted Théoden the King, leading him to ignore the threat Saruman posed to his people and sink into a deep depression. For this, Gríma was given the derogatory epithet Wormtongue by Gandalf, who exposed him and released Théoden from his influence. In the Movies, Gríma is made extra-creepy by a lack of eyebrows.

For this, Gríma was given the derogatory epithet Wormtongue by Gandalf, who exposed him and released Théoden from his influence. Gríma is known to have lusted for Théoden's neice, Éowyn. As part of their agreement, Saruman promised that Gríma would have Éowyn if Saruman succeeded in gaining power. He didn't, much to everyone's relief. In the Movies, Gríma is made extra-creepy by a lack of eyebrows.
