The first pictures of Evangeline Lilly’s character in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug have been revealed.
The Lost actress will play Tauriel, a character created specially for Peter Jackson’s second film in the trilogy. At a Q&A event for the film, Jackson spoke about Lilly’s Tauriel.
“We’re quite excited about the storyline we have created for Tauriel. As you can see, she’s not an Elf Guard to be messed with.”
Jackson also revealed at the event that the first trailer for the movie will debut this summer, and even hinted that it may be attached to Man of Steel when it is released.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be released on December.
