Evangeline Lilly: “Tauriel Is A Warrior”

January 25, 2012 at 11:09 am by DiveTwin  - 

Entertainment Weekly’s John Young recently caught up with Evangeline Lilly to discuss “Real Steel” which has arrived on Blu-Ray and DVD.  While there are many fans of that movie, Tolkien devotees want to hear more about her upcoming role in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  

EW turned the conversation to that very topic and asked if her new character Tauriel would be a type of elf warrior, which Lilly confirmed.  “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.”

Lilly went on to say her role has expanded from her original expectation and has only a small part at the end of the first Hobbit film, leaving the bulk of her participation for 2013’s The Hobbit: There And Back Again.  However, she could not confirm any involvement in the Battle of Five Armies, a highlight fans are looking forward to in the second film.  She did mentioned a return to New Zealand for five more months of filming.

You can read the entire article here at Entertainment Weekly.  And I know TORN fans will be discussing this on the message boards!
