Evangeline Lilly Is Ready For Backlash From Hobbit Fans

It’s agonizing as a fan to see an actor take on a role in a film adaptation of one of your favorite books, isn’t it? Good thing that isn’t the case with Evangeline Lilly! The former Lost actress is taking a pass on Comic Con this year, as there is no The Hobbit panel, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have anything to say about her role in the upcoming third and fourth parts of the film adaptation. 

Lilly is a self-proclaimed Tolkien fan, and she went into The Hobbit expecting a certain amount of backlash. Her character, Tauriel, isn’t in the books, after all. In the video below, Lilly discusses the experience of having to speak Elvish and her decision to be a part of the film franchise. 
The interview comes as part of Lilly’s press tour to promote her new children’s book, The Squickerwonkers. To be fair, though, the questions about The Hobbit are not completely unrelated - she did work with Johnny Fraser-Allen, A Weta Workshop illustrator who worked on special effects for the films. 
Take a look at the video here.
