EDIT: Ok so I was watching The Hobbit the other day and when I looked up Cate Blanchetts character from that one movie and The Lord of the Ring movies I realized that is the character Galadriel. I always thought of her as just Lady of Lorien, lol.
So Galadriel is the pretty blonde elf lady with flowing white gowns and is the grandmother of Arwen (Liv Tyler actress in movie) who marries Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen actor in the movie). Galadriel is the one who can speak in ones head and who denies herself the one ring after Frodo offers it in Lord of the Rings.
So yeah didn't read the books but did see the movies so now I realize who is who, sort of, lol!
