Quotes from David Wenham about Faramir

"Faramir has grown up in strange situation... but not an uncommon one. Growing up in a family where he has a father who obviously prefers the oldest son. Sometimes fathers prefer the youngest son but not in this case." - Caltanet Interview (Transcript)

"I'm sure that there is a jealousy from Denethor towards Gandalf of that friendship of Gandalf and Faramir. And it manifests itself in a frustration with the youngest son by Denethor and an obvious preference for Boromir." - Caltanet Interview (Transcript)
