Evangeline Lilly cast in The Hobbit | dailystab.com

Peter Jackson announced via Facebook that Evangeline Lilly has been cast in The Hobbit as a woodland elf named Lauriel. He didn’t want to reveal too much, but wanted fans to know he hadn’t forgot about them.

“Evangeline Lilly will be playing a new character—the Woodland Elf, Tauriel,” Jackson wrote on his Facebook page. “Her name means ‘daughter of Mirkwood’ and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing!”

“No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas. What is not a secret is how talented and compelling an actress Evangeline is; we are thrilled and excited she will be the one to bring our first true Sylvan Elf to life,” he continued.

I’m sure for The Hobbit fans this is exciting news, we haven’t seen too much of Lilly since Lost ended. I can’t wait to see this movie finally come to life on the big screen, it hits theaters December 2012.
