Gone was her famous long wavy brunette hair that survived without deep conditioner on that island for years. In its place, a short, shaggy chopped look with chunky golden blonde highlights.

It's definitely not a cut for her Hobbit role. She sports a wig to play Tauriel, an elf who lives in Mirkwood. Her character does not appear until the second film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, due out next year. She also appears in the final film, due out in 2014.

Not counting becoming a new mom to her son Kahekili Kali in May 2011, her elf role is her biggest one since Lost ended in 2010.
