Woman who beat up a hobbit (short interview with the Australian actress who played Charlie's old girlfriend).

August 13, 2005

TO land a part on one of America's most successful TV shows is pretty good going for an Aussie actor, but getting to beat up the star of the series is even better.

So former Sydney starlet Terasa Livingstone found when she scored a role on hit series Lost.

Livingstone, best remembered for her stint on The Great Outdoors, plays the girlfriend of Lord of the Rings star Dominic Monaghan's Charlie in next week's cliffhanger show.

"When I won the part I called a friend who's a Lord of the Rings fan, and said 'I'm about to be in Lost and I get to beat the sh. . out of a Hobbit," Livingstone told Confidential.

"I won't say too much about the episode, but Dominic and I get very physical – I almost broke my finger and I cut his eye when we were filming it."

The fisticuffs scene – shot in Hawaii but set in a Sydney hotel room – garnered a fair bit of attention when it aired in the States last month.

"I say to people 'I was the drug addict, and they're like 'you're the one who beats up the Hobbit!" she laughed.

PS I am feeling better.

Glad you're feeling better. I always feel a bit off myself around August/September. Don't know why. Seasonal adjustment, I guess.

We should talk! My mobile plan treats Canada like some kind of distant continent. Do you have Skype?
