"Pete is adding a lot of characters in the film adaption"... Can't Post



The LA Times '24 Frames' blog has an interview with rumored Hobbit participant, Saiorse Ronan, which reveals a significant statement about PJ's adaptation of The Hobbit to film. Among other highlights in the article is the following statement from Ms. Ronan:
"Pete is adding a lot of characters in the film adaption," she said. "Hopefully they have a part for me."

This lines up with long standing rumors that a character named 'Itaril' has been added to the movie and Ms. Ronan is queued up for the role.

Itaril is described in unofficial casting call sheets as: female, A woodland Elf, this character is one the Silvan Elves. The Silvan Elves are seen as more earthy and practical. Shorter than other elves, she is still quick and lithe and physically adept, being able to fight with both sword and bow. Showing promise as a fighter at a young age, ITARIL was chosen to train to become part of the Woodland King's Guard. This is the only life she has ever expected to live, until she meets and secretly falls in love with a young ELF LORD. This role will require a wig and contact lenses to be worn. Some prosthetic make-up may also be required. LEAD. AGE: 17-27.

Time will tell, but odds are we'll be seeing Saiorse Ronan in this role for The Hobbit. Saiorse also mentioned that The Hobbit will be 'a little bit lighter than 'Lord of the Rings'.' Read the full interview at the LA Times [Read on]
