Aidan Turner as Kili

Dwarf of Thorin & Company. Kili was born in the Blue Mountains in 2864 of the Third Age. He was of the line of Durin, and his mother was Dis, sister of Thorin Oakenshield. Kili had an older brother Fili. Kili’s hood was blue and he played the fiddle.

In 2941, Kili accompanied his uncle Thorin on the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the Dragon Smaug. Kili was the youngest Dwarf on the expedition and he had sharp eyesight. In the High Pass of the Misty Mountains, Kili and Fili found a cave called the Front Porch for the company to take shelter in, but though the brothers claimed to have thoroughly explored it, Orcs emerged from a hidden opening and took them all captive. It was during the flight from the Orcs deep under the mountains that Bilbo Baggins found the One Ring.

Kili was on watch in Mirkwood when he spotted the fires of the Wood-elves, but when the Dwarves approached they were taken captive. Bilbo rescued them and sent the Dwarves in barrels down the Forest River. Kili and Fili were the least affected by the trip and helped Bilbo release the others from their barrels. Kili and Fili then accompanied Thorin into Lake-town and were seated in places of honor at the Master’s table when Thorin declared himself to be King under the Mountain.

At the Lonely Mountain, Kili and Fili accompanied Balin and Bilbo on the first scouting expedtion, and later the brothers were with Bilbo when he found the hidden door. As one of the more active Dwarves, Kili was frequently sent on errands from the camp high on the doorstep. After Smaug’s departure, Kili and Fili played golden harps from the treasure hoard. The brothers were also sent to retrieve the ponies who had run off.

When Thorin refused to negotiate with the Lake-men and Wood-elves who came to the mountain seeking part of the treasure after Smaug’s death, Kili and Fili seemed not to share their uncle’s mind on the matter. Kili and Fili fought alongside Thorin when the Dwarves joined forces with the Men and Elves to fight the attacking Orcs in the Battle of the Five Armies. Thorin was mortally wounded, and Kili and Fili died defending him.

Dean O'Gorman as Fili

Dwarf of Thorin & Company. Fili was born in 2859 of the Third Age. He and his younger brother Kili were the nephews of Thorin Oakenshield. Their mother Dis was Thorin’s younger sister. They were of Durin’s Line. Fili had a yellow beard and a long nose and he wore a blue hood. He played the fiddle. Fili had very sharp eyesight.

Fili and Kili were born in the Blue Mountains and lived there until 2941, when they were chosen to accompany their uncle on the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon. At the unexpected tea party at Bag End on April 26, Fili helped his host Bilbo Baggins clear away the dishes.

When the company was caught by a storm in the High Pass of the Misty Mountains, Fili and Kili found a cave to take shelter in. Unfortunately the cave turned out to be the Front Porch of a secret entrance to an Orc lair. The Dwarves and Bilbo were captured by the Great Goblin but were rescued by Gandalf. It was in the tunnels under the mountains that Bilbo found the One Ring.

In Mirkwood, Fili retrieved the boat from the far bank of the Enchanted Stream by throwing a rope with a hook on the end. The boat had no oars, so Fili came up with the idea of pulling the boat back and forth across the stream using another rope and hook.

Fili was the first Dwarf whom Bilbo freed from the webs of the Great Spiders and he helped the Hobbit free the others even though he was very ill from the poison. Afterwards, Fili had to cut off most of his beard because of the spider webs stuck in it.

Later, when the Dwarves escaped from the Elvenking’s Halls by floating in barrels down the Forest River, Fili again helped Bilbo free the others. Fili had been packed in an apple barrel and he was so sick of the smell that he never wanted to eat an apple again. Fili and Kili accompanied Thorin to meet the Master of Lake-town, and they were seated in places of honor.

At the Lonely Mountain, Fili went to investigate the Front Gate with Balin, Bilbo and Kili. Fili and Kili were with Bilbo later when he found the secret entrance to the mountain. They did not accompany Bilbo into the Dragon’s lair, though they felt uncomfortable about not offering. Once Smaug left the mountain, Fili and Kili found golden harps in the Dragon’s hoard. The brothers were then sent to retrieve three of their escaped ponies.

When Thorin rejected Bard the Bowman’s request for a share in the treasure, Fili and Kili apparently did not share their uncle’s view. But during the Battle of the Five Armies, the two brothers valiantly defended Thorin with their shields and bodies. Fili and Kili were both killed and Thorin later died of his wounds.
