Before Evangeline Lily joined Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, there was one condition that had to be met, and that was that there would be no love triangle. For those of you who saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, then you know there's kind of a love triangle brewing between her, Legolas, and the dwarf Kili. I guess she just got tired of the whole love triangle plot device from her days on LOST. I imagine that she asks for that with everything she does now.
Well, they made good on their word until two films became three. When she came back for reshoots, they revealed the news to her. This is what she had to say about it in an interview with Yahoo.
"We came back for reshoots in 2012 … and they were like, 'Uh, the studio would really like to see…' And I was like, 'Here we go. Here we go' And sure enough I'm in another love triangle."
I like the character Tauriel, and I think she was a great addition to the story. She's a pretty badass character. I'm not sure the love triangle needs to be in there, but I'll hold my judgement until I see how it plays out in the final film.
