~ Sméagol/Gollum's most famous quote (about his doomed obsession with the One Ring) and also one of the most famous quotes in cinema history.
Sméagol, was a hobbit of the branch of the Forts born near the Gladius Fields. He lived for about 589 years thanks to the power of the One Ring, which disfigured him physically and mentally. They called him "Gollum" in reference to the noise he made with his throat, the orcs of Cirith Ungol called him "Snooper" for his services to She-Laraña. Samsagacious Gamyi called him Flatterer and Rascal. And he called himself My Tresaure.
Sméagol lived her first years of life with his family near the Gladius Fields under the matriarchal regime of his Grandmother. Around the year 2463 his cousin Deagol found the Ring while he was fishing, and Sméagol murdered it to take it from him. He soon became hateful to his family and was kicked out of the community.
He hid in the Misty Mountains, falling more and more under the control of the Ring transforming it into the creature Gollum, until 2941, when he lost it. After being kicked out of his family, Gollum took refuge in the Misty Mountains for a long time. After several years, he loses the Ring and another hobbit named Bilbo Baggins arrives, who finds the ring and prompts him to play riddles with a deal: if the Bilbo wins, Gollum shows him the way out to escape the Misty Mountains; but if Gollum wins, he eats Bilbo. In the end Gollum discovered that the hobbit had stolen his ring, Bilbo put on the ring and escaped from Gollum. From that moment on, Gollum went out to look for his ring (leaving the cave where he lived alone), since the need to find the ring overcame his fear of the sun, the moon and others. creatures. A few years later he was captured by Sauron and tortured in order to discover who had the Ring. In 3017 he was released, but was again captured this time by Aragorn II, who handed him over to Gandalf. Gandalf, discovering what he wanted to know about the Ring, placed him in the custody of the Elves of the Forest Kingdom. In June 3018 he escaped during an orc attack to search again for the ring.

When his plan failed, he followed the hobbits until Orodruin. There he also ambushed them but failed, however when Frodo claimed the Ring as his own on the edge of the volcano he attacked it again. . Gollum obtained the Ring]] by removing his finger from Frodo, since he had become invisible when he put it on.

Smeagol is played by Andy Serkis, who also plays him as the original Sméagol in the beginning of Return of the King. Sméagol's scene before he was Gollum was going to appear in the two towers. But it was changed because it was thought that the audience should meet the original Sméagol when they were already familiar with Gollum. The appearance of the character is of a miserable being with large eyes and long fingers, very skinny, and almost malnourished.
