Love is in the air, and I’m not just referring to our adoration for the dashing Thorin!
It seems that the character of Tauriel (played by Evangeline Lilly), a sword-wielding warrioress elf, may well be romancing the lovely Kili (Aidan Turner) in the Hobbit movie.
This spoiler comes courtesy of Mr Turner himself.
I simply love a man with loose lips 🙂
Tauriel plays a small part in the original novel, but she seems to have hit the jackpot in Dwarf loving.
By the way, for those who hold out hope that Thorin might get some sweet lovin’ elvish-style, may I remind you that he is Kili’s uncle, and the Hobbit is not a Greek Tragedy, or a Brazilian telenovela!
We are yet to catch a glimpse of Evangeline Lilly’s character (am I the only one who thinks the actress has the coolest name ever?), although knowing my luck it’ll be out by the time this post is published.
I’ll keep abreast and update.
By the way, if you’ve read the Hobbit book, you will have noticed that it is a boys club.
As in almost ‘no girls allowed’.
It’s interesting that Sir PJ has decided to expand the part of Tauriel, and yet, he’s not using the actress to promote the film, for the time being anyway.
I’m sure there are more than a few geek boys who would appreciate her presence.
