Lindir is a minor Elf character in the Tolkien universe. He appears briefly in The Fellowship of the Ring discussing songs with Bilbo in Rivendell.
He is sometimes interpreted as a minstrel, as his name means "singer" in Elvish.
Lindir appears in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012), portrayed by actor/musician Bret McKenzie. McKenzie previously played an Elf extra in the Lord of the Rings films who became known to fans as Figwit. Some fans have interpreted Figwit to be Lindir, although McKenzie has said that he believes them to be different characters.
In The Hobbit film fandom, Lindir is commonly shipped with Elrond.

So are Figwit and Lindir really one and the same? McKenzie says no.
“You’ll probably see, I’ve got slightly different ears,” he laughs, “That’s how I differentiate my elf characters. The big difference for this character is that he’s in 3D. He’s a character that’s a lot more three dimensional.”
