Video: Evangeline Lilly Takes A 'Real Steel' Break To Talk About 'The Hobbit'by: Posted:
Between being surface-of-the-sun hot, filming "Lost" in Hawaii from 2004 to 2010 and now shooting 2012's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and 2013's "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" in New Zealand's most scenic lands, could anybody reasonably argue against there being a God somewhere that Evangeline Lilly has made very, very happy?
She has a co-starring role alongside Hugh Jackman in "Real Steel" but she took a recent break from promoting the rock-'em-sock-'em battling robots thriller to discuss playing Tauriel in the upcoming adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's precursor to his "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy.
"I have a dialect coach, a motion coach, a language coach, a stunt coach," Lilly said, before joking "I should, by rights, be great in this film! If I f*** up, it's my fault!"
Well-said, Ms. Lilly. "An Unexpected Journey" hits theaters Dec. 14, 2012. "There And Back Again" concludes the epic story in theaters Dec. 13, 2013.
