My role in 'The Hobbit' is dangerous: Evangeline Lilly
Los Angeles: Evangeline Lilly says her character Tauriel in 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' is dangerous.
The 33-year-old plays Elven warrior Tauriel in the new film and says her alter-ego is far more fiery and brash than Cate Blanchett's wise character, Galadriel, reported Empire magazine.
"She is less wise and much more dangerous. I'm barely 300 years old! She's got a little bit of immaturity and a lot of spontaneity.
"I've been up in trees and scaled walls. I scale an orc at one point - she's almost ninja-esque. She's just slicing through (rivals) like blades of glass to get to the finish line. She has no problem killing; that is what she does. She is a killing machine," Lilly said.
The 'Lost' star said landing a part in the trilogy - which is a precursor to the 'Lord of the Rings' movies - was a dream come true as she used to "fantasise" about being an elf.
"This is probably the most tempting role I could be offered," she said.
