"She’s slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill," Evangeline Lilly said of her role as elf warrior Tauriel in this December's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. "Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard.She’s a Sylvan Elf, which means she’s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in The Lord of the Rings. She doesn’t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do — she’s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit." For those of you racking your brains or flicking through your copies of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, Tauriel is in fact a brand new creation for the movie. However, we will get to see her relationship with an already established character - Orlando Bloom's Legolas - explored. "Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thrandruil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her." For more on her love story in the movie and to hear what Lilly thinks about playing a newly created character in the big screen adaptation of the beloved novel, be sure to click on the link at the bottom of the page.
