The former Lost star insists she enjoyed working with director Peter Jackson on The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in New Zealand, but she was not so fond of the troublesome 20-pound (nine-kilogram) wig she was forced to wear as new elf warrior Tauriel for the film.
She tells the New York Daily News, "The wig was incredibly painful when I had to do my stunts. It also gets caught in everything. I would get my weapons caught in my hair... I would get props caught in my hair; it was really hazardous."
