Mary Nesbitt is a Northern Irish actress who played a Child of Dale in The Hobbit trilogy and Tilda, Bard the Bowman's younger daughter, in Peter Jackson's film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.


Mary Nesbitt and her elder sister Peggy both moved to New Zealand when their father James was cast as Bofur in The Hobbit film trilogy, a role that would require a year of continuous filming.  Peggy and Mary were both initially resentful about having to live and attend school away from their normal home, but both were given the opportunity to audition for the films, and were surprised to win their roles.

Their mother, Sonia Forbes-Adam, likewise appears in the films as Belladonna (Took) Baggins (Bilbo Baggins' mother).

Now at the age of 13, she is currently attending The Charter School in Red Post Hill, London.
