Need help finding characters Can't Post

I was looking through my brand new DOS blu ray(;, and was pausing throughout the credits for any new characters or surprise roles, when I noticed several characters that I didn't know who in the film they were.. I was able to find put for most, but 3 still persist. They are:

Soury- played by Kelly kilgour
Hilda Bianca- played by Sarah peirse
Lethuin-played by Eli Kent

Please if you have any Info on the characters or where they appear in the film don't hesitate to share!

Thanks in advance!

Could Lethuin be the elf that tells legolas Tauriel has left?

Is Hilda Bianca the woman that sees the dwarves walking around in laketown when they first arrvie? http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140331170530/lotr/images/0/05/Hilda_Blanca_DOS.jpg

when I was researching bit players for LOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

I would seek out other roles certain actors played in order to get a sense of what they looked like. I would suggest these are all likely New Zealanders so you can add that to any searches you do.

For example, this might be the Eli Kent that was DOS: http://www.thearts.co.nz/...aid=133&type=bio

his resume, which includes his photo and Hobbit credit (Lethuin is an elf) is attached to this post.

Hilda Bianca is the character in that pic. [In reply to] Can't Post

She also features in Brian Sibley's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Official Movie Guide.
It struck me as being unusual that a Lake-town character was given a surname unless Bianca is her second name and used to avoid confusion with Tilda.

Lethuin [In reply to] Can't Post

...is the Elf who blows the horn telling the guards at the sluice to close the sluice gate. The Elf who tells Legolas that Tauriel has gone into the forest is Elros.

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

There is also the character Feren [In reply to] Can't Post

It took me a while to work out who it was, as the actor looks similar to Eli Kent. However, Feren is the Elf who blows the horn when the Dwarves escape.

Maybe Lethuin is one of the Sentries?

I think Soury is the man who lights his pipe in Lake-town.

nope [In reply to] Can't Post

No no, Elros is the one who sleeps in the wine cellar, He does not wear those clothes of that elf who tells elgolas shes gone.

Guy who tells Legolas shes gone is like mirkwood ranger. Elros isn't part of those.

Too many Elves who are given names but seen only fleetingly. Crazy

Turning on subtitles can help. [In reply to] Can't Post

They usually identify who is speaking a line.

Brother will fight brother and both be his slayer,
brother and sister will violate all bonds of kinship;
hard it will be in the world, there will be much failure of honor,
an age of axes, an age of swords, where shields are shattered,
an age of winds, an age of wolves, where the world comes crashing down;
no man will spare another.

Believe(d) they were the same elf... [In reply to] Can't Post

Elros is 100% sure the elf in the wine cellar, because Galion calls him by name. However, I assumed that he was also the elf at the gate because they looked the same to me:

Elros ("Keeper of the Keys") as he locks Thorin in his cell; we see his ring of keys as he turns away. Note he is wearing armor in that scene.
In the Wine Cellar scene he has changed clothes.

Elf at the gate: same guy? (Note similar armor). Or do they just look somewhat alike?

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.
