Cate Blanchett: Dame Edna Joins 'The Hobbit'

Cate Blanchett attends a performance of the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Edward Gant’s Amazing Feats of Loneliness at the Wharf on Wednesday (June 22) in Sydney, Australia.

The 42-year-old actress will be joined in the highly anticipated films The Hobbit by Barry Humphries, most famous for his alter-ego Dame Edna!

Barry “will be portraying the Goblin King, in much the way Andy Serkis created Gollum,” director Peter Jackson wrote on Facebook. “We’re looking forward to seeing him invest the Goblin King with the delicate sensitivity and emotional depth this character deserves.”

Evangeline Lilly was also recently added to the cast.

FYI: Cate is wearing a Romance Is Born top, Givenchy jacket, a Herve Van Der Stratten necklace, and Vivier shoes.
