I was woundering does anybody know how hy made the effect were gladriel takes the tets in the fellowship pf the ring. When she gets all bright and her voice is deep. I was wondering if you knew how they made her face. I thought maybe contrast and a glow but Im not sure. It looks kind of like a cartoon face or something. Even if ur not sure but have some idea it would be much appreciated

Use a low backlight on your subject while filming to get the glowing edges. Also lots of wind to whip around wisps of cloth and long hair would be helpful, and it looks like they filmed it with some sort of contacts lenses to blacken her eyes. With a little time and masking (or alot of time, more likely), you could do the eyes in post though.
You're gonna want to desaturate the footage quite a bit, and shift it heavily toward the blue/green area of the spectrum.
A bit of diffusion might help too, for those who have VisionLab. Otherwise, you could use a duplicate layer with very low transparency, brightened up a lot, and with a heavy blur. Not sure its really necessary though.
For the voice, they layered several recordings of the same lines that had been re-pitched and processed a bit, to give that disturbing someone-else0is-talking-through-this-body effect.

I can't say for sure, but I'm guessing it was a combination of both. They probably recorded her saying the line at several different tones, and then tweaked them and processed them a bit from there.

it could be done with different grading techniques all over the image.
Personally, I would invert the colors in several parts of the image, such as the eyes, then give it a blueish tint, then add some optics in the background.
