Nice to get some news on the Hobbit front. Evangeline Lilly who is playing the OFC Tauriel hbriefly mentions that learning to fight like an elf wasn't easy after childbirth. I didn't know she had a baby. She also said she was used to working in "boy's clubs" like Lost and didn't mind it for the Hobbit. Also she didn't have a chance to meet Cate Blanchett who did her filming before Lilly got on the set.
Here's the linkie:

Ah, well, I'm curious now... Now, funny they only add ONE woman warrior, just to tick the box. Why not several?

I know, why not several. What's the term in Sindarin for "token" ? LOL. Still, I think it's a good idea to have a few wimmin in there, even if the Hobbit was a testerone-fest. (You know, off-hand, I can't think of any female characters in The Hobbit. Surely there must have been one?)

I don't remember any. No, I don't think there is one. So yes, I imagine that detail would have gone down well with 50% of the potential audience of the movie. Money speaks louder than canon ;o)
