Posted by at 1:50 pm on May 27, 2013

taurielelfTotal Film chatted with Evangeline Lilly about playing the Elf Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again.

“She’s a very, very young elf,” Lilly said. “She’s only 600 years old, unlike Legolas who’s like, 1,900 years old and Thranduil who’s about 3,000 years old. She doesn’t have quite the wisdom and pose that those two boys do; she’s a little more… gritty. A little more spontaneous, passionate perhaps.”

She added, “To play this character I need to have a certain amount of grace. But I’m also supposed to be an absolutely ruthless, deadly killer.”

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13 of this year while The Hobbit: There and Back Again concludes Jackson’s second J.R.R. Tolkien trilogy on December 17, 2014.
