Evangeline Lilly Is Very Concerned About Her Role In The Hobbit!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

Evangeline Lilly The Hobbit

We were excited for Evangeline Lilly when she got cast in The Hobbit!

But now she's beginning to have second thoughts on her role and how it will play out with the heavy Lord of the Rings fan base.

The actress anxiously says:

I am very concerned that people will watch, and I’ll be the black mark on the film. I know how adamant the purists are and I’m one of them! That said, upon reading The Hobbit again, as an adult, I can see why additional characters were needed to round out the story as an adaptation — especially female characters! The Hobbit didn’t include female characters at all. What they have done is all in perfect keeping with J.R.R. Tolkien‘s world, while adding a third dimension to an otherwise very two-dimensional story.

Aww, don't worry ’bout a thang, gurl!

People will love you! Just don't screw it up!!! Ha! JK!

    I can't distinguished between her and Kate Austen, so this Hobbit thing isn't going to make a difference … but still, can't wait!
