The Hobbit The Desolation of Smaug: Evangeline Lilly on Living Elven Dream

by at .  Updated at .

Evangeline Lilly was supposed to be retired. After the success of Lost, Lilly sought to engage in a quieter life of raising her young child while focusing on her writing career. But, as a longtime J.R.R. Tolkien fan, there was no saying “no” when Peter Jackson called and asked her to appear in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. “What's so strange about retiring at 30?” Lilly asked Movie Fanatic and laughed. "I had retired into what I thought would be a life of quiet motherhood and writing, and didn't really plan on taking any more acting gigs."
