OH, WOW! Lost alumni, Evangeline Lilly is lookin’ sexy and fierce in the first look at Sylvan Elf, Tauriel in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolution of Smaug! Evangeline Lilly spoke with EW about her role in The Desolution of Smaug and drops hints of a love story with a certain Elf we met before.
“Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her.” She laughs. “That’s probably as much as I can say.”
I imagine Tauriel is going to be one very popular cosplay during convention season. Lucky us!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug drops on December 13, 2013.
