Comic-Con: Evangeline Lilly on entering the 'Hobbit' world as a Tolkien fan -- VIDEO

Evangeline Lilly is no stranger to Comic-Con. Lost, which gave Lilly her breakout role, ventured to San Diego even before it debuted in 2004. And now she’s a certified member of the J. R. R. Tolkien universe, as Tauriel in the upcoming The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

This year, however, the actress is promoting her new children’s book, The Squickerwonkers, with an assist from Weta Workshop illustrator Johnny Fraser-Allen, who worked on special effects for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. So that gives us license to squeeze in a few Hobbit questions, right?

Below, EW’s Keith Staskiewicz talked to the actress about what it means for her to be a huge Tolkien fan getting to take a trip to Middle-earth.
