IT looks like Miranda Otto's role in the next instalment of The Lord Of The Rings film trilogy may be a controversial one.

The Two Towers, which is to be released on Boxing Day, reportedly involves a love triangle between three central characters which does not appear in the book.

Tolkien purists already enraged by the passion between Aragorn and Arwen, played by Viggo Mortensen and Liv Tyler respectively, are likely to be further upset with the introduction of Otto's Lady Eowyn.

The character will spice up the clandestine relationship by diverting Aragorn's attention from Tyler's Elvish princess.

"There's going to be a romantic triangle in the next one. We sexed it up a bit," a source told imdb.com
