The actor Robert Kazinsky (Eastenders) has recently had to leave the set of The Hobbit due to personal reasons back in the uk. In The Hobbit he was going to play one of the 13 dwarves Fili who accompany Bilbo on his adventure. Luckily not many of Filis scenes had been filmed yet so production is still on track for the already long delayed film.
Im quite annoyed by this as I had high hopes for the Eastenders star and thought hed make a great dwarf with fellow brit Aidan Turner (Being Human) who is playing Filis other half Kili. I’m sure though that Peter Jackson will find a suitable replacement for Robert and bring us The Hobbit in due time.
