More photos from The Hobbit have been released and one of the dwarf characters is looking decidedly different.
If Fili and Kili weren’t twins I would swear their mama had been messing around with an elf. Aidan Turner as Kili is almost the opposite of a traditional dwarf, with his brooding good looks and thin frame. Who ever heard of a svelte dwarf?
It may be blasphemy*, but I am in favor of the diversity. A group of exact copies with different colored cloaks wouldn’t provide a lot of visual stimuli.
For those of you who prefer your dwarves with a more classic look, have no fear. There are plenty of squat, beardy and rotund dudes on hand, like Bifur, Bofur and Bombur here.
*Since I am working in the blog-mines alone this week – JHistorical is on a research trip- I can make all the blasphemous Tolkien comments I want.
