Legolas + Tauriel hinted romance - was it added only in pick ups?

Legolas + Tauriel hinted romance - was it added only in pick ups? Can't Post

I'm starting to think that the Legolas + Tauriel romance suggested in the trailers was only added this year during the pick ups. That it is part of the expansion from 2 to 3 films.

Jackson himself said way back in 2011 "(No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas.)"

The latest production blog does show some of the scenes like "Do not give him hope where there is none" as a scene shown, was it filmed in pick-ups??

Does anyone agree, or is there any confirmation/hints of the hinted romance before May this year?

Thread on the 3rd page back [In reply to] Can't Post

There was a comment made by Orlando Bloom in the Official Movie Guide which apparently denied any actual romance occurring between Legolas and Tauriel. However, I don't know how dated that information is.

Here's a link to the thread: http://newboards.theonering.net/forum/gforum/perl/gforum.cgi?post=667514;sb=post_time;so=DESC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread

"After all, I believe that legends and myths are largely made of 'truth', and indeed present aspects of it that can only be received in this mode; and long ago certain truths and modes of this kind were discovered and must always reappear." Professor Tolkien, 1951

Orlando's quote [In reply to] Can't Post

from his recent October New York interview (well after pickups finished) was that feelings were "alluded to but not actualized" . So we won't see any actual Legolas-Tauriel romance as such. It was discussed here:

Sadly Legolas doesn't get a look in, as much as he'd like to...
