First Look At Tauriel In The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

Actess Evangeline Lilly is playing the Elven warrior Tauriel in the upcoming sequel, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.  Tauriel is a brand new character created for the films and was not int he original novel. She recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the role and we have our first look at her character! "She’s slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill. 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."  The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug is due in theaters this December.
