Evangeline Lilly may play the role of a Sylvan in the new Hobbit film, but she is happy that she will display a feminine character. The copying of male violence is something which is anathema to Evangeline.
While there may be no Tauriel in the original book, The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, in the latest film there is. And Evangeline Lilly is to portray the lower class role model. She is very excited and exhilarated about her appearance in the movie. While Liv Tyler and Cate Blanchett have more classy roles, Evangeline’s typecast slot may not be all that attractive.
Yet the actress has shown no signs of dissatisfaction at playing second fiddle. In fact, she is positively enthused about the whole proposal. The delicate and womanly character she will exude on screen is suited to Evangeline. She hates to be seen in a male-oriented way. She is a woman’s woman.
The Hobbit is a tale of fantasy adventure based on the life and times of Bilbo Baggins. The group of dwarves fights Orcs and Dragons, as well as a troop of villagers. They engage in a quest that resembles the storyline of The Lord of the Rings.
Evangeline says that she read the book, The Hobbit in her youth and has always cherished the Sylvans shown in the pages. She considers it an honor to perform as a proletariat in the film and has no hang-ups about stars in better positions than her.
