We’ve known that Evangeline Lilly (LOST, The Hurt Locker) was going to be in The Desolation of Smaug and now we finally get to see her in her Elven form. She will play Tauriel who is the bodyguard of the Elven King Thranduil. In addition to the image above, take a look at Peter Jackson’s video below where he addresses questions from the fans as well as some surprise guests.
The part with Stephen Colbert had me laughing while he surprisingly raised some very intricately detailed questions for many of the fans. While there are many familiar settings in The Hobbit, it looks like we may see some totally new areas in the sequel. And while some of you hardcore fans may know that there are different types of Elves in the story, that is something I did not know. I doubt we’ll be hearing about any sort of reference to Legolas or Galadriel from these Elves.
