The Hobbit - Evangeline Lilly Discusses Playing the New Character Tauriel

Labels: , ,

Thanks to Coming Soon for the following:

Former LOST Star Evangeline Lilly on her role in The Hobbit:

"With every film, you have to educate yourself on the material and it's often things you don't know a lot about. Right now I'm studying Elvish and having conversations with people about learning how to be an archer, a swordsperson and how to fight like an elf instead of a gritty convict."

"I am very concerned to this day that people will watch the film and I'll be the black mark on the film," she said. "I know how adamant the purists are and I'm one of them! That said, upon reading 'The Hobbit' again, as an adult, I can see why additional characters were needed to round out the story as an adaptation – especially female characters! 'The Hobbit' didn't include female characters at all and was a very linear story, a book for children, really. What Peter, Fran (Walsh) and Philippa (Boyens) have done is all in perfect keeping with Tolkien's world, while adding a third dimension to an otherwise very two-dimensional story."
