I have become really emotionally attatched to Fili, and I feel that he is so underappreciated. I wonder a lot how Dean O'Gorman feels about how Alfrid got more lines than the heir to the throne of Erebor who was in all three movies. And at the same time, I feel like a lot of the focus was put on Kili and Tauriel. I ship them, but I feel like that made Fili a piece of chopped liver. PJ could have done so much more with Fili.
