It's about time we all addressed the fact that One Direction's Niall Horan is quite literally a 21st century personification of Samwise Gamgee from The Lord of The Rings.
For any doubters out there, we've collected a bunch of instances where Nialler gave away his secret persona as Samwise The Brave; AKA the sole reason why Frodo Baggins was able to eventually destroy the ring.
When he would've gladly carried Liam Payne up Mount Doom.
"Come, Mr. Frodo!" he cried. "I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you and it as well. So up you get! Come on, Mr. Frodo dear! Sam will give you a ride. Just tell him where to go, and he'll go."
– "The Return of the King"
When he just really liked potatoes.
When this quote is basically Where Are We Going Today Mark?
Get up, Sam!" said Gandalf. "I have thought of something better than that. Something to shut your mouth, and punish you properly for listening. You shall go away with Mr. Frodo!"
"Me, sir!" cried Sam, springing up like a dog invited for a walk. "Me go and see Elves and all! Hooray!" he shouted, and then burst into tears.
When he was literally everyone's favourite human.
When he loved flowers, shrubs, and gardening.
And finally, when he was absolutely convinced that the world had some good in it.
Three cheers for Nialler The Brave.
