Evangeline Lilly Worried That People Would Hate Tauriel
Check out this awesome magazine cover featuring Evangeline Lilly, Tauriel in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. She’s a bit of a Tolkien geek herself and has talked before about how she understands the risk of introducing a new character into an established universe. She told Entertainment Weekly…
“I did have to hesitate and go, ‘Whoa, people are going to hate me’, but I really couldn’t refuse. It was just too good to say no to.”
She also said that, despite this, she’s confident that the character is a “breath of fresh air” and will become a favorite. We’re with you, Evangeline. Fierce Elf ladies for the win, source material or no.
