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 admin@hotmail.com – you’ll of course receive credit! Now, enjoy the awesome new Tauriel photos…




Hey guys I saw this really cute video of Evi along with Orlando Bloom and Lee Pace watching a video of a couple of fan reactions while watching The Desolation of Smaug trailer.




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!

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.”

I boarded a jet plane this past Friday and traveled 16 hours through the night to Washington, D.C. I was back on a plane again on Monday morning flying the reverse 16 hours back home. I was in Washington with over 40,000 other protesters for the Forward on Climate Rally, to call President Obama to say “no” to the KXL pipeline.

The journey was long and on the way there I read Tim Flannery’s Now or Never, an inspiring (short) read on the state of the planet in the face of climate change. On the way back I was too exhausted to read or do anything productive, so I watched b-movies and contemplated my experience at the largest climate rally in U.S. history. I thought about the KXL pipeline and what it represents at this moment in American/Canadian history. I thought about all of the concerns over the pipeline on both sides. I thought about solutions to climate disruption — solutions that won’t slow our economy or stop commerce, green energy solutions like the advanced carbon-neutral biofuels that should be fueling my jet travel. I thought about how many people are crying out that we need the tar sands pipeline right now for economic stimulation and for job creation. I thought about the hard working citizens who feed their children through oil related jobs. And… I couldn’t help but wonder….

If oil workers could choose, would they choose to work in toxic environments with damaging chemicals, or would they choose to work surrounded by clean air?

If Americans could choose, would they choose to work on the infrastructure for cancer-causing oil power or would they choose to work on the infrastructure for health reviving wind power?
If Canadians could choose, would they choose to dig up their forests, leaving behind barren and filthy wastelands, or would they choose to harvest the sun’s rays and leave behind a legacy for their children?

If people had a choice, what would that choice be?

My reflections on climate choice were abruptly interrupted by the ever more sobering understanding that, right now, so many citizens of our free, democratic nations have no choice. They go to work in the dirty energy sector for lack of a better alternative.

There are jobs to be created on both sides of the climate argument. Whether we are investing in oil or sun, coal or wind, gas or algae, the economy will be stimulated by the investment. The economy, unlike each of us, is not swayed by ideology. So, by the time I touched down at home, I had but one, echoing thought in my mind, one aching plea for the leaders of our “free world”: Please… ask not the people if they want to work, but ask the people what they want to work toward. Even slaves have jobs. A free man should have choice.

On February 17, I am joining tens of thousands of people on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., along with tens of thousands more in cities and towns across the nation, in what will be the largest climate action in US history.

The Piscataway Tribe has graciously extended a welcome to our First Nation guests from British Columbia, Canada, and to ALL of us. Thank you Chief Billy Tayac and thank you everyone who is descending on Washington, DC, from around the nation for the Forward on Climate Rally!
