Several entertainment sites reported on Tuesday, April 27, 2011, that ex- ‘EastEnders‘ star Robert Kazinsky has quit ‘The Hobbit’ due to health reasons.

Kazinsky was recently hired to play the role of  Dwarf Fili in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ prequel project.

There is no immediate details provided surrounding the health problems of Kazinsky.

Below is director Peter Jackson‘s statement about Robert Kazinsky.

I am sad to report that Rob Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, is having to leave ‘The Hobbit’ and return home, for personal reasons. Rob has been terrific to work with and his enthusiasm and infectious sense of humour will be missed by all of us. I should say that Rob’s departure will not affect ongoing filming of ‘The Hobbit’, nor will it impact work done to date, as we had yet to film much of Fili’s storyline. At the moment we are shooting scenes featuring Bilbo without the Dwarves, which will give us time to find a new Fili. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates as they come.
