Lilly plays a fierce Elf warrior named Tauriel in the second film in The Hobbit Trilogy from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Sir Peter Jackson, and is excited to feature on New Zealand Post’s latest collection of The Hobbit movie-inspired stamps and coins.

“I’m on a stamp and coin from Middle-earth. It doesn’t get much cooler than that,” said Lilly.

“We’re thrilled to bring the taste of Middle-earth back to America’s Diner,” said John Dillon, vice president of marketing for Denny’s. “Last year’s menu attracted both Denny’s guests and fans alike with a combination of movie-inspired elements and traditional holiday flavors. This year we’re elevating the experience with the introduction of adventurous new flavors, exciting exclusive content and once-in-a-lifetime prizes, taking our guests on a truly authentic dining journey.”
