The Saorise Ronan/Itaril Rumours Can Now Be Laid To Rest

May 5, 2011 at 7:06 am by Earl  - 

In a new interview with the Belfast TelegraphSaorise Ronan has revealed that she will not be playing the long rumoured role of the Elf Itaril in the upcoming Hobbit films.

An excerpt follows:

It’s probably not going to work out with The Hobbit unfortunately.

Because I would have been working for about a year on it and there were other projects that I was very interested in.

Head over to the Belfast Telegraph to read Ronan’s entire statement in the interview.

Does this mean the role of Itaril has been eliminated from the movie entirely, or does it simply mean that Ronan won’t be the one playing it? Discuss on our message boards.

    Hurray? You think that a character that was integrated into the script that was going to take a year to shoot is going to be exercised from the script? No. The bummer is that we almost had the best young actress potentially going to make that watchable….now….we’re going to get some stopgap, lesser skilled actress for the role.

    I agree. If Itaril exists she only should be played by Saorise Ronan.

    That has put to rest a lot of the rumours about Saoirse and The Hobbit movie but not the character Itaril.

    I don’t think this role was a cameo, to quote ‘I would have been working for about a year on it’

    I am not disappointed at this news

  11. guest says:

    I agree too. Although I truly question whether a part that isn’t in the book would really be getting enough screen time to warrant a full year’s work. Liv Tyler didn’t spend the full 1.5 yrs filming her part, she went home and filmed another movie for several months. Cate was only on set for Galadriel for something like a week. Sean Bean wasn’t either. And those were all book-to-script roles.

    Also, TORn, please take a second to spellcheck. Both your articles and your urls have been sort of laughable recently.

  12. hobby says:

    I know that Saoirse would have loved to have done The Hobbit if the time frame had allowed it to be so. She has not been idle that’s for sure, while all the rumours about the Itaril have been bandied about, Ronan has quietly been looking at other projects and options and many of these has caught her interest. I can see why there was an unwillingness to commit.

    So I am not surprised.

  13. Adeona says:

    If there is truly going to be an Itaril, which sounds very likely, Saorise is the actress I would pick for the part.

    So I am NOT happy to hear this.

    Yes yes yes !!!!!!

    Yes yes yes !!!!!!

    Some comments on anti-Itaril pages on Facebook are rather pathetic, basically insulting Ronan for wanting to be in The Hobbit. It’s one think to dislike the character but it’s another to make false accusations on an actress.
