Evangeline Lilly Signed Up For THE HOBBIT Movies On One Condition: No Love Triangle!
Well, we know how that turned out! Coming off one of the most famous love triangles in tv history, the former Lost alum really didn't want a repeat of that in the final 2 Hobbit movies - but when 2 films became 3, everything changed.
It seems Evangeline Lilly didn't want to recall her Jack/Sawyer days on Lost when signing on to The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and the final flick in the trilogy, There And Back Again. The actress reveals to Yahoo! in the video below that the one and only stipulation she had when agreeing to be a part of the movies was "no love triangle". Of course anyone who's seen the current movie will know that didn't exactly stick - Lilly's character Tauriel is quite taken with Kili (Aidan Turner) while also drawing some very interested glances from Legolas (Orlando Bloom). Apparently when the decision was made to expand the 2 movies into a trilogy, those extra scenes were added.
“We came back for reshoots in 2012 … and they were like, 'Uh, the studio would really like to see…' And I was like, 'Here we go. Here we go' And sure enough I'm in another love triangle.”
Lilly can take solace in the fact that her scenes with Turner, at least, work very well in The Desolation Of Smaug..we'll have to see how things play out in the final movie (though anyone who's read the book will have a fair idea what shape this little triangle will ultimately take!)
