Expansion of Kili's role

Expansion of Kili's role Can't Post

I have to admit that I was a little worried by the fact that Kili gets so much screen time in AUJ. He is nice to look at and all, but why did they need to show him beside Thorin in almost every scene? (Hopefully the relatively lack of Fili screen time is due to last-minute actor change, but we will have to see)

So, I did a bit of research, and found that Peter Jackson saw Aidan Turner in Being Human and wanted him for the role. I was curious.

So naturally I watched Being Human... and I was completely blown away by how convincing Aidan was in his role. I thought Kili was just there to be pretty, but once I realized what Aidan could do, it gave me a new perspective.

Obviously, PJ is going to do something with Kili's role -- and perhaps a lot of something. If he was just there simply to be funny, be cool and slightly heroic and die tragically, then it would be such a waste of talent.

However, this gave me a new concern. It's Bilbo's story after all! Putting attention on the Dwarves and turning Thorin into a tragic hero is one thing, as he's the main Dwarf. But now Kili too?

Not that I'm complaining -- if anything, I'm intrigued. But I can't help but feel that it is going to be a tricky balance to keep.
