Peter Jackson on Legolas

Not all that glitters is gold

Evangeline Lilly will be playing a new character—the Woodland Elf, Tauriel. Her name means ‘daughter of Mirkwood’ and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing! (No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas.) Peter Jackson, on his Facebook page.

Let it never be said that P.J. doesn’t understand his audience. Lilly, a veteran of Lost joins the cast of The Hobbits, making Tauriel the second female character in a cast of about three dozen. So, yeah, we’re willing to put aside the adaptation decay rage in trade.
