[when asked what he remembered most about filming "Lord of the Rings":] "We loved to surf over there. It`s something that we`ll take with us for a long time in the future. We plan our holidays around breaks and places to surf. When Billy [Billy Boyd] is in town I surf quite a lot, because it`s hard to go surfing on your own. You can do it, but it`s not as much fun." [December 12, 2003]
  • His brother, Matthew, is one year older than him.
  • Originally auditioned for the role of Frodo Baggins in the LOTR trilogy
  • Kept a pair of the latex Hobbit feet used in LotR.
  • Of the three British cast members of "Lost", the others being Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Naveen Andrews, he is the only one to play an English character on the show. Ironically, Monaghan is the only one of the three to not have been born in Britain, rather having been born when his parents were working in Berlin, Germany.
  • Speaks fluent German.
