Hello fellow Evangeline fans! As we reported earlier, Evi and some of her “Desolation of Smaug” co-stars is featured in the August issue of Empire Magazine. A fierce scan of Tauriel has now surfaced – and can be found in our galleries!
Yesterday, director Peter Jackson said goodbye to Gandalf forever as Ian McKellen wrapped shooting on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again, finishing pick-up shots and extra scenes in New Zealand.
Today, Peter Jackson says goodbye to Legolas forever, as Orlando Bloom wrapped an intense 16 hour day on set fighting an Orc. Here is a special message from the director, along with a special video made for fans as beer was passed amongst the crew. Jackson also makes note that yesterday was Evangeline Lilly’s final day on set as Tauriel.

Hello fellow Evangeline fans! As you’ve probably noticed already, we have a brand new layout here at I Heart Evangeline. The previous layout had been up for almost a year, so I figured it was about time we got a change – and the amazing Samantha came up with this beautiful piece for us! I really love it, and I hope you’ll all like as much as I do. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment with your thoughts – I would love to hear your opinions! I’ve checked the layout in all my browsers, and everything should be OK – but please let me know if you experience any issues.
Since we’re getting closer and closer to the release of “The Hobbit: the desolation of Smaug”, I decided to make our sidebar a little “The Hobbit“-centric this time. It’ll be updated with more stuff releated to the film eventually, as I expect we will be getting a lot more photos, videos and more as the premiere gets closer! I’ll be starting our information pages dedicated to the trilogy this weekend as well, and I also have a couple of Tauriel stills and scans to share with y’all. But for now, have fun checking out our new look – and stay tuned for more updates this weekend!
Hello fellow Evangeline fans! Along with two of her fellow “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” co-stars, Lee Pace (Thranduii) and Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Evangeline is gracing the august cover of “Empire Magazine” – looking absolutely fierce as the elf Tauriel! I have added two previews of the cover to our galleries, and hopefully we’ll have some outtakes from the photo session soon as well.
If anyone are able to scan the issue for us, we would really appriciate it! As I’m not from the US, I’ll most likely not be able to get a copy of it myself. Simply drop me an email to email@example.com – you’ll of course receive credit! Now, enjoy the awesome new Tauriel photos…
I’ve replaced the Tauriel still from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” with a beautiful HQ version! Make sure you refresh the page if you still see the old, tagged version. Thanks to my friend Ann for the heads up. Enjoy!
… and it features Tauriel/Evangeline A LOT! Who else is excited for December now!? Screencaptures from the trailer will be up in the galleries as soon as I can find a HD version. What do you think of the trailer?
EDIT: Updated with a HD version (make sure you change the quality) – screencaptures are on the way!
Hello netters – exciting news today! The first official poster for the second The Hobbit film, “The Desolation of Smaug” has surfaced online. It doesn’t feature Evangeline, but it’s still worth a mention! Also, the official teaser trailer for the film will be released tonight – and it’s supposted to feature a lot of our girl…
The new teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be unveiled this Tuesday, June 11th, at 10am PT / 1pm ET!
Entertainment Weekly released the first look of Evangeline in “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”. We added the production still in our gallery.
When The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on Dec. 13, there will be a fresh face among the residents of Middle-earth: Tauriel, an elf warrior played by Evangeline Lilly of Lost fame. “She’s slightly reckless and totally ruthless and doesn’t hesitate to kill,” says Lilly. She’s also not found anywhere in J.R.R. Tolkien’s original fantasy novel, or in any of Tolkien’s other writings for that matter.
Director Peter Jackson and his co-writers on the Hobbit trilogy, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, invented the character to expand the world of the elves of Mirkwood Forest — and to bring some more female energy to the otherwise male-dominated Hobbit narrative. “Tauriel is the head of the Elven Guard,” Lilly explains. “She’s a Sylvan Elf, which means she’s of a much lower order than the elves we all became acquainted with in The Lord of the Rings. She doesn’t hold the same kind of status that Arwen or Galadriel or Elrond or Legolas do — she’s much more lowly. She sort of goes against the social order of the elves a little bit.”
