Filmmakers, take note: There’s more to gender equality than putting a warrior woman on screen.
That was the message The Hobbit star Evangeline Lilly sent at last week’s San Diego Comic Con.

Lilly refreshingly pointed out that while Tauriel is a fearsome warrior, that’s not necessarily why she’s so great.
