B eloved by worldwide audiences for her performance as the feisty Kate in the Fox TV’s acclaimed mystery series “ Lost ” for which she earned a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination, Canada’s Evangeline Lilly now stars in a Silvan Elf, Tauriel, in Peter Jackson’s “ The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug .” Daughter of Mirkwood, Tauriel is as deadly as she is beautiful.
