Entertainment Weekly has a recent interview with actor Aidan Turner – otherwise known as Kili in the upcoming ‘The Hobbit’ films. Some highlight below, and for the full story visit Popwatch at EW.com:

You were sporting a pretty impressive beard at the Hobbit press conference. Is that for Kili?
AIDAN TURNER: Yeah, it is. I’m growing out the beard. We’re giving it a chance, seeing what it looks like.

Is that how Peter Jackson plans to make you less handsome and more dwarf-like?
To de-handsomify me? [Laughs] No, not really. I mean, famously in the books, the dwarves have really long beards, so we’re just trying stuff out and seeing what it looks like.

Are you in “hobbit boot camp” now?
Yeah. Well, it’s dwarf boot camp, not really hobbit boot camp. It’s just all dwarves—training and stuff.

    > I’m growing out the beard. We’re giving it a chance, seeing what it looks like.

    I can tell you Aidan, it looks like sh… as well as the greasy long hair. Hope they’ll go for a more decent looking beard..

    I LOVE Aiden, but that beard looks dreadful. Perhaps extensions… Or just a fake beard. They’ll probably have to do that with all of them to get the beards bushy enough….

  4. hello.glad I stumbled upon this site,it’s great to be informed of the movie going’s on!

    I am so happy for Aidan. Been a fan since Being Human first episode.
    Love him. I agree the beard does not do justice for his pretty face! But he is still handsome to me.

    I know Aidan will do a great job playing Kili. Peter Jackson could not have picked a better person. However, us Being Human fans wished he never left the show.

    Aidan, you ROCK!
