Coming off the tremendous commercial and critical success of the first film in the trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, director Peter Jackson created a new character for the next installment. Enter the Woodland Elf named Tauriel, portrayed by Canadian actress Evangeline Lilly, who debuted in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Her character was an immediate hit with fans and critics alike and she was again a crucial element to the story in the final film of the epic trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. In The Desolation of Smaug, Tauriel is the head of the Elven guard. She teams with Legolas (Orlando Bloom) to save Bilbo Baggins and the 13 dwarves, who are attacked by giant spiders. Lilly was nominated for several awards for her portrayal of Tauriel, including the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress in an Action Movie and a 2014 Kids’ Choice Award. Lilly has signed this limited edition (50) 26” x 40” The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug poster in silver paint pen. Her signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
