Official Lord of the Rings Website Interview with Viggo Mortensen
Aragorn arrives: Viggo Mortensen discusses his crowning achievement

[...] What's the most pleasant surprise for you in the final film?
It has to be Eowyn and Miranda Otto's commitment to her. When I saw that they were paying attention to her warrior side in the third movie I was really pleased. Because the people of Rohan have had to count on women to defend their country for a long time, and I thought it was important to see that. And Miranda has done a great job. She's been amazing, and I think people will be impressed by that.
