Evangeline Lilly is in Wellington.

The Mail Online has a photo of her, her son and boyfriend walking on Oriental Parade in Wellington, here.

It's nice to see her looking so relaxed. :)

Ooh - nice to know something's happening!

Thanks for the link.

She looks much more elf-like as herself - and the baby's sweet. I'm sure they can fit him in somewhere - hobbit baby, child from Esgaroth... Wink

They look happy, but ...

   


Am I the only one thinking it'll be tough for Dominic Monaghan when he inevitably visits the set with Elijah & Billy later on this year?

It's hard enough seeing your ex at the best of times, but with a baby, her new beau, and now part of something that was a big part of his life before they met as opposed to their shared life on Lost, must be weird to say the least. Like his immediate past and distant past colliding right in front of him.

Or maybe he's more mature than I'm giving him credit, is glad to see her happy, and put a good word in for her with Pete!

Either way, good luck to them all. Smile

Will they even cross paths?

I hope her role isn't so big that she needs to be there for months on end.

And I would presume any visit the boys make will be relatively short. I mean, I dunno, but what would they do after they'd visited the set and said "hey" to everyone?

At least that is what has been said.

Or...

...she doesn't feel like making the 13 hour flight a bunch of times back and forth, so they're staying until they don't need her anymore. At least that's what I would do.

that they parted on amicable terms.

How nice of her to have the Hobbit book in the stroller

Smile

I hope I'm not mistaken.
It's the edition illustrated by Alan Lee.

I don't think it would make any difference.

It's not like she's playing a character from the book or anything.

It might if

...she's intends her performance to be informed by Tolkien's descriptions of the Mirkwood silvan elves.

If the book she is carrying is LOTR or anything by Tolkien, I see that as a good sign that she wants her performance to feel authentic and to honor Tolkien's vision of that culture. Can't hurt, anyway.

Back when she was on LOST

she did an interview where she said she was a huge Lord of the Rings fan. That's one of the reasons she and Dom started hanging out together...that and their love of bugs and the outdoors.

Now whether she was a fan of the books and/or the movie I do not know.

Apparently

She's a real outdoorsy kind of woman. Loves to climb trees, white water rafting and rock climbing etc. I'm not surprised she was offered the role of a wood elf.
