Beloved by worldwide audiences for her performance as the feisty Kate in the Fox TV’s acclaimed mystery series “Lost” for which she earned a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination, Canada’s Evangeline Lilly now stars in a Silvan Elf, Tauriel, in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.”
Daughter of Mirkwood, Tauriel is as deadly as she is beautiful. A favorite of King Thranduil (Lee Pace) and Captain of the Woodland Guard, her job is to follow the orders of the King without question. However, Tauriel has a strong will and unyielding passion for what she believes is right. An expert fighter, she carries signature weapons including twin daggers and a bow and arrow. Like Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Tauriel is extremely fast and agile in battle. Although she has lived for many hundreds of years in Middle-earth, she remains one of the youngest of the Elven folk, and has rarely ventured beyond the borders of the great forest.
