Evangeline Lilly dishes on her role in The Hobbit

Jan. 25, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the lovely Evangeline Lilly talked about her role as Tauriel, a Mirkwood elf, in the upcoming THE HOBBIT films.

When asked if she had to learn archery and swordplay, Lilly had this to say:

"Yes, she is a warrior. She’s actually the head of the Elven guard. She’s the big shot in the army. So she knows how to wield any weapon, but the primary weapons that she uses are a bow and arrow and two daggers. And she’s lethal and deadly. You definitely wouldn’t want to be caught in a dark alley next to Tauriel."

When asked how involved her character is in the two films, she said:

"She’s not in the first film very much. She comes into the first film near the end, and has a very small part to play. Her role in the second film is much more involved. Although, I have to say, when I first read the scripts and took the job, she had a lot less going on in the second film. I think the role is becoming a bit more demanding that I had expected it to be. There’s a lot more for me to do now, which is a lot of fun, but it’s a little more pressure."

Lilly said she wasn't sure if she'll play a larger role in the Battle of Five Armies scene as it hasn't been shot yet, but said she still had five more months of shooting left. She's already been filming on and off for the past six months, which sounds like Tauriel will be featured more than expected.

I'm a big fan of Evangeline Lilly, having watched her in every season of LOST, where she simply nailed the role of Kate, especially for someone with as little experience as she had coming in. Also, did I already say smokin' hot?

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY dwarfs cinemas on December 14, 2012, and THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN hits December 13, 2013. As long as the world doesn't end this year according to the Mayan calendar we should be all good.

Oh, and you knew this was comin'...

Extra Tidbit: Anyone see Evangeline in the 2008 film Afterwards? Any good? Nudie bits?

About what I figured, but thanks for saving 2 hours of my life. I will save them for the next Step Up abomination.

She is gorgeous and yes that is one of the best and one of my most favorite pictures of her.

Would love to be stuck on an island with her for six seasons.

Renner is a Boss

You gotta' hand it to Renner. He's tapping the sweet, sweet life outta' her somewhere while we're sitting here having orgasms just looking at a static photo of her teasing us. Reality sucks. Hard.

Dear Peter Jackson,

What is wrong with you that you feel the need to not only butcher the things I love by actively cutting out parts just because YOU don't understand them (Scouring of the Shire, anyone?) but now also just make shit up that isn't anywhere to be found in Tolkien? Were you molested, as a child? Did Brilliance sneak into your bedroom at night and do things, so that now the only way you can feel in control is by destroying Brilliance where you find it and replacing it with

So the guy leaves out ONE part in an epic 1,000 page trilogy and you think that gives you the right to ride his ass about it? If you don't like it, just don't watch it and quit cryin about it.
