Talks ‘The Desolation Of Smaug,’

(Title of the article was actually longer, but I had to shorten it.)

Since playing Kate for six seasons on “Lost,” Evangeline Lilly has become a virtual standard-bearer for midriff-exposing tomboys. But that’s also the reason you haven’t seen her in as many roles since: she has a few stipulations that characters must meet in order for her to consider playing them, including no tank tops, and perhaps even more crucially, no love triangles. But as a massive fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels, Lilly thrilled at the chance to join the cast of Peter Jackson’s adaptations of “The Hobbit”—even if the character was completely original, and as she soon discovered, finds herself in a love triangle.

Feeling a bit under the weather during the Los Angeles press day for “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” Lilly spoke to The Playlist via telephone as she scurried from one promotional event to the next. In addition to talking about her fan trepidations about having a new character added to Tolkien’s sacrosanct source material, Lilly discussed the challenges in bringing Tauriel to life, and finally, reflected on the opportunities, and deal-breakers, that guide her choices as an actress these days.



Evangeline Lilly takes aim as a Middle-earth newbie

After Evangeline Lilly gave birth to her son Kahekili two years ago, there was only one man who was going to get her out of bed and onto a film set.

The director Peter Jackson had told her six years earlier at the Golden Globes that she would have been a perfect elf in his The Lord of the Rings movies — a thought that gutted Lilly, a full-fledged J.R.R. Tolkien nut. So when he came calling with a role in his follow-up The Hobbit prequel trilogy, she quickly traded maternity leave for Middle-earth.

“I was not about to tell Peter Jackson to go away with his elf ears,” says Lilly, 34. “I was like, ‘You bring those elf ears right over here!’ ”

A mere three months after having her child, the former Lost star put on those pointy appendages and grabbed a bow and dagger to play the female warrior Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (out Friday) and the third Hobbit film out next December, There and Back Again.

Evangeline Lily Talks About Her Character In The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

Total Film spoke with Evangeline Lily about her character in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, an Elf named Tauriel. The character is entirely new.

She said: “She’s a very, very young elf. 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. To play this character I need to have a certain amount of grace,” said Lilly. “But I’m also supposed to be an absolutely ruthless, deadly killer.
