A Lost survivor joins The Hobbit

In the latest casting news it has been confirmed that Lost star Evangeline Lilly has joined The Hobbit as the Elf Tauriel.

Peter Jackson confirmed the news on his facebook page. I think this could be the most interesting set of casting choices in years.

Lilly, still best known for her work as Kate on the island-set mystery/sci-fi series (though she’ll be seen in the upcoming Real Steel), has signed on to play a new character that Jackson describes in his latest posting thusly: “the Woodland Elf, Tauriel. Her name means ‘daughter of Mirkwood’ and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing! (No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas.)”
