Hi lotr and hobbit fans, so I know everyone including myself is very excited for the hobbit which comes out next year and you have probably heard PJ and his team have made a new female elven character named Tauriel.(played by Evangeline Lilly) She is not in the books and this character has been invented by PJ and his team for the movie because they are barely any female characters in The Hobbit. Personally,I have no problem with Tauriel. It's good when films like The hobbit have strong female characters. I'm really excited for this character and I think she is going to be great! By the way she is not going to be Legolas's girlfriend or lover. I imagine her being kind of a tomboy having long brown or blond hair with elven braids. So lotr fans,what do you think of this addition to The Hobbit,post your opinions please.
