Evangeline Lilly’s elf role in the hobbit
New Zealand Herald writes a few statements from Evangeline Lilly on her role as Tauriel, the Mirkwood warrior elf, in the Hobbit movies.
“She’s actually the head of the Elven guard. She’s the big shot in the army,” said Lilly.
“So she knows how to wield any weapon, but the primary weapons that she uses are a bow and arrow and two daggers. And she’s lethal and deadly. You definitely wouldn’t want to be caught in a dark alley next to Tauriel.”
“There’s a lot more for me to do now, which is a lot of fun, but it’s a little more pressure.”
“In some ways, it feels really familiar. I’m from Canada, and New Zealand feels like you took all the best bits of Canada and squished them onto a tiny island like Hawaii. I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the South Island.”
“I seem to be landing really great locations on a lot of my work. I hope that continues, knock on wood.”
