And if "some elf" is someone other than Thanduil [In reply to] Can't Post

Unless they wanted Turner for Galion, who else could this have been? Potentially "Luthuin" played by Eli Kent, though he's probably another Lindir or glorified extra. I can't imagine they wanted Turner for a bit part (especially as PJ called Turner and asked him to audition, having been a fan of "Being Human").

I suppose Turner could have been auditioning for Thranduil, though one images:

A. He would have been reading AS Thranduil and not about him.

B. FB would have specified which character Turner has auditioned unless she had not wanted to delve into exorcised characters from an earlier draft of the script.

Anywho, everyone else from that casting call has ended up in the films (save for Drogo & Primula, who might well play into the "Back Again" of Film 3), making it seem quite possible that this "Elf Warrior" was an important character in the scripts at one time.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
