First look at Evangeline Lilly as the elf Tauriel in The Hobbit 2

Evangeline Lilly is playing an all-new character in the second movie in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy, The Desolation of Smaug, an elf named Tauriel. All we knew about her character is that she has some kind of relationship with Legolas (who will be stopping by the film) but now we also know that she may have borrored her outfit from a high school production of Peter Pan.

Also we know that red hair does not suit Evangeline Lilly. Check out the photo in hi-res over at Entertainment Weekly. [Image via EW]
