That Tauriel business is not confirmed. We don't know what they are lifting. If it really is Glorfindel's lines. . .

there really are no words. A one liner cameo would do him much better service than the near total omission he has gotten. Technically he has a non speaking cameo in the films as the wrong Elf. He SHOULD have been (and in my mind remains) the one standing behind Elrond in Minas Tirith. I also imagine him to be the one sitting by Gandalf in The Coucnil, merely played by a different actor. lol.

Anyway, it would do him much more service than he has gotten to sit beside Gandalf at a meeting of the full council. Perhaps even a special nod by having him speak a single line in support of Mithrandir.

Disservice would be giving his lines of Prophecy to a Silvan Elf as far removed from him in power and wisdom as Peregrin Took is from Celeborn The Wise. Outrageous, and I hope it isn't so.

Especially since they are apparently (so I hear) giving his fmaous prohecy to Tauriel. I'd rather him and Cirdan turn up in future adaptations, but in line with their role and history in the book. I'm still narked they cut Cirdan's beard from the film (as the whole 'bearded elf!' thing was why I got interested in the character), since Lindir is in the films maybe he should get a few lines at the council-four people feels a little cheap on the numbers to me.


"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
