Very nice interview. Though, I do think that all dwarfs should have at least a good length beard. That's like their main characteristic/identity. In that sense, Kili doesn't look much like a dwarf to me. I want to agree with Richard Armitage but I also have these prenotions about dwarfs.
I guess it all just depends. I've heard a couple of theories that I think work pretty well in Kili's situation, and are rather interesting (the latter I'm going to mention). The first one was that he was still a bit young to have a proper beard, and the second one being that he's chosen to be an archer. It mentioned that because an archer would be required to 'kiss the arrow', where when one draws the bow back and that end would be touching the person's cheek, like so. They've also said that having a bushier beard might hinder the archer's ability to be able to use the bow properly, which makes sense to me.
I really like those theories. I'll keep them mind from now on.
