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.

Robert Kazinsky (born Robert John Appleby; 18 November 1983) is an English model and actor. He is best known for his appearance as Casper Rose in Sky One drama Dream Team in 2005/2006 and Sean Slater in the BBC One soap opera EastEnders from 2006 to 2009.

Kazinsky was born in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, England. He was educated at Hove Park School in Hove, from 1995-2000. As a student, Kazinsky was expelled from both Hove Park School and later, his college. He appeared in their productions of Bugsy Malone and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. He achieved a grade B in his drama GCSE in 2000.

Kazinsky was schooled as an actor at the Guildford School of Acting from September 2002 to July 2005. During this time, he took his grandfather’s middle name as his stage name. He has appeared in several Israeli television commercials and made his acting debut in 2005 when he had a guest role in an episode of the CBBC children’s show The Basil Brush Show, playing a character named Sven Garley. He then got a role in Sky One’s football drama Dream Team where he played Casper Rose from late 2005 until 2006, when he was killed off towards the end of the ninth series after Kazinsky announced his intention to leave.

In 2008, Kazinsky announced that he would not be pursuing a career in Hollywood but would instead begin an apprenticeship as a mechanic when he left the popular soap opera, “EastEnders”, saying: ‘With the writers’ strike and the newly confirmed actors’ strike, it’s not the best time to go (to the US ).

Kazinsky has also been writing a new television series inspired by Sex and the City which is set to air sometime in 2010. George Lucas liked Kazinsky so much, he offered him a part in his new Second World War fighter film, “Red Tails”. Kazinsky plays a “pilot who has to adapt to being among African-American comrades.”

Kazinsky was featured as the presenter in the EastEnders launch video since they had launched their new video channel on Youtube.
