I am just going off what [In reply to] Can't Post

I have seen from PJ. Legolas isnt earthy and Thranduil isnt earthy, I just assumed there would be some cohesive aesthetic with the Mirkwood Elves? Although in the books they were more rustic, I think PJ is going for, wears green = rustic. I just dont get the choice of actress, its my problem I guess.

Thranduil rules over the Wood-elves of Mirkwood, but he and his son are Sindar-elves. Tauriel is the first authentic Wood-elf that we meet.

There is something to be said for personal presence too. Not every actor or actress has it to the same degree. Makeup and lighting can achieve a lot, but it still comes down to the ability of the individual to capture the audience's attention.

Liv Tyler [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't think she's be able to pull off Arwen, yet she did for me. That (and many other lessons learned) have taught me to wait for the finished product before I rush to judgement.

I'm not rushing to judgement either. Maybe you are thinking of the post that I was responding to.

Your post seemed to imply that we were in disagreement.... [In reply to] Can't Post

If I misread your intent then I apologize, but my impression was that our point-of-views were pretty much the same.

As Elisebeth I [In reply to] Can't Post

Dame Judy Dench manages to pull off more presence than Cate Blanchett.

And I agree about Liv Tyler. Based on her performance in Armageddon, you would never pin her as an elf.

It's called acting. Some people are better at it than others, but you can't judge it by looking at a them.

I don't know... [In reply to] Can't Post

She looks rather elf like to me especially a Silvan elf. I think she looks a tad less ethereal and classic than Cate and Liv which would seem in line for a wood elf. She has more of an earthy natural beauty IMHO.
Even her real name sounds like a wood elf. Evangeline Lilly.

I understand that [In reply to] Can't Post

But the rather Hollywood "girl next door" look does not, IMO, translate into "wood elf."

But I will wait to see Lilly act before I cast final judgment.
